Why do so many people never obtain the financial independence that they desire?  Often it's because they just don't take that first step -- getting started.  Besides procrastination, other excuses people make are that investing is too risky, too complicated, too time consuming, and only for the rich.
The fact is, there's nothing complicated about common investing techniques, and it usually doesn't take much time to understand the basics.  The biggest risk you face is not educating yourself about which investments may be able to help you achieve your financial goals and how to approach the investing process.
What is the best way to invest? "Consider the following strategies."
  • Long-term compounding can help your nest egg grow
  • Endure short-term pain for long-term gain
  • Spread your wealth through asset allocation
  • Consider liquidity in your investment choices
  • Dollar cost averaging: investing consistently and often
  • Buy and hold, don't buy and forget

Diversification and asset allocation do not guarantee positive results.  Loss, including loss of principal may result.  There is no guarantee that Dollar Cost Averaging will result in a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market.
