Investing money is an important part of your overall financial picture. Investing helps you to plan and save for the future, and if you’re like me, investing here and there is an excellent learning experience. Now, most of us have some sort of retirement and/or 401 K that is through an employer, and that’s great. But, you should NOT touch that. Leave that with your investment advisors and/or whoever handles that for you.
The kind of investing that I am talking about in this post is on a much smaller scale (to start). That investment amount can be as small as you want it to be. In fact, I started one of my small investment accounts with literally ZERO invested cash of my own.
How did I do that?
Well, to be honest, I’ve been wanting to learn about cryptocurrency for quite some time. We’ve all seen the bitcoin advertisements on Facebook, Twitter, and so forth. And, if you pay attention to business and finance online, you’ve had to have seen how quickly some cryptocurrencies gain value. Still, I didn’t feel like I knew enough to invest my money in it until I learned more.
And that’s when I stumbled across Coinbase.
Coinbase actually gave me the opportunity to learn about cryptocurrency AND gave me a certain amount every time I completed a lesson online. So, as I learned, I earned. And the best part of it is – you can too!
