5. Just do it! Whether you decide to go it alone (DIY), work with an advisor, or join an investment club – just do it! Experience is one of the best teachers so don’t wait to get started. Building your investment muscle is just like building any other muscle, it takes consistent work, determination, and time. Will you make mistakes along the way? Probably, but if you learn from them you don’t have to make the same mistakes again.
Remember, the best way to predict the future is to take charge, take control, and create it, and the rewards of learning to invest can go way beyond any monetary gain.
