At school, Teachers invest their time in teaching students how to pass their examinations with good grades so that they will graduate and get good paying jobs, the students are not thought how to manage the money the make through working for their employees. The student is not thought how to invest the money He earns while working, only very few students realize later in life that they wasted most part of their active lives pursuing shadows, students spend about 21 years studying what does not show them how to make money talk less of investment. It is only when you understand how to make money will you be able to invest. Have considered why some people that are brilliant at school end up being poor? It is all about financial illiteracy.
Becoming richer daily is possible through the investment of your money. Let your money work for you rather than you working for money. If you earn money and decide to put it in a safe place so that thieves will not steal it, it will remain the way you kept it, but on the other hand, if you decide to invest it thereby taking a wise option, you will be laying an ever lasting foundation for your investments, this will help your money to grow. The best investment is long term investment, with 100% reinvestment of the dividend you must have accrued. It is a matter of time you will definitely reap great dividend on your investment.
Why do we invest? The answer is simple: to reap dividend, to become financially independent, to live the way we want to live our lives and travel wherever we want and off course command money to obey us rather than us obeying money. To become wealthy through investment opportunities, there are levels of risks involved, instead of remaining financially disabled by not taking risk associated with investments it is better to take the risk. You must have heard that whenever a would be investor wants to invest, He should only invest the money He can afford to loose without it causing untold hardship to him. That is a wise statement, I will add never you borrow that which you cannot pay back in the name of investment, I mean only invest that which is yours and which you can be able to loose.
I am not trying to put fears into you, rather I am being very objective. Like the old saying “it is not good to put ones eggs in one basket”. Diversification in investments is very advisable for any investor in other to minimize risk. You can invest in mutual funds, Bank fixed deposits, Bonds and what have you. The most important thing you have to do is to study the firm you want to invest in, their performances over the years, if need be the characters of those in top management level of the firm.
