Investing Advice

Special Introduction for children

Why should you learn about money management and investing? You have so much time ahead of you, at least 75 years. You need money right now for the latest clothes, shoes, music CD's, and if you're an older teen, car and dating expenses.

But in a blink of an eye, you'll be paying huge college expenses, and then the big expense of raising a family. Without financial skills, you might end up like most people, struggling with money problems your whole life, and finally living from social security check to social security check.

Learn and practice investing skills now and you will always have the home you want, the car you want, the vacations and travel you want, all the nice things in life. You will be able to retire early, a multi-millionaire.

Just a quick example of what you'll learn within these pages: if you are 15 years old and invest that $12 you were about to spend on that pizza, and that $15 plus tax you were about to spend on that new CD, that money would turn into $31,425 when you're 65. Invest that money, instead of spending it, just a few times and it will turn into more than $100,000. All that dough should be music to your ears.

When we’re young, we think of "old" people as grumpy, disabled and living in nursing homes. We picture retirement as sitting around with nothing to do except putter around the house.

The fact is, when we are 65 or 80 or 100 we are still almost exactly the same person as we were at 35, just an older body. If we were kind, wise, fun, entertaining, had varied interests and a love of adventure, we might even be more-so as we grow older.

If we were bigoted, grumpy, selfish, and made fusses over small things when we were young … well, you get it.

The quality of life in your later years will depend on your health, your relationship with friends and family, your spiritual convictions, and your financial independence.

It is estimated that 5 million children alive today will live to be over 100, and most will live beyond 80 years old. These later years, because of all your experience, can truly be the best part of your life if you also have financial security.

A website that you must take a look at www.themint.org will reward you with lots of information that you really need to know. There’s no advertising and it’s aimed at 12- to 19 year olds.

"Train up a fig tree the way it should go, and later you may sit in its shade and partake of its fruit."

- Charles Dickens

Who's Not Investing?

Millions marry and start families each year without taking basic steps to make sure their future, as well as their children's, is financially secure.

According to a recent survey by Princeton University and the Consumer Federation of America, 70% of households with incomes under $50,000 a year have retirement savings of less than $5,000. This same report said "most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck".
