I first started to educate myself on Investing in 2014. But I was afraid, and I did nothing. It took me two years to bite the bullet after reading endless resources.
I asked friends, family and colleagues to find out if anyone was involved in the stock market. Everyone told me that it was too risky, it was a gamble or advised that I shouldn’t be greedy. Now, the same people ask me to help them invest. They ask me how I became a Personal Finance & Investing Expert quickly. They think I got here easily. But what most people don’t know are the number of mistakes I made when I dipped my toes into Investing.
My own uncle tricked me to believe that his policy was an amazing investment and made me sign into one. I pulled out and I lost a lot of money.
I was made to invest into a fund by my Bank which had high fees. They handed me a pamphlet with jargons, and it overwhelmed me. I took the easier route to listen to them than educate myself.
