Simple Ways to Invest

Do you in a hot tub filled with money? If you do, you’re probably not reading this article about where to invest your money. You probably already know where to invest it. Maybe you have some amount of discretionary income that you would like to put to use. Here’s a few ideas for where to invest your money.

  1. Reduce Your Debts: The first place you should invest in is yourself. This may not technically be somewhere to invest your money, but it’s important. There are two kinds of people in the world. People that pay interest, and people that make interest. Investing is all about the latter. Debt is quite literally the opposite of an investment. Before you worry too much about investing, make sure you don’t have lots of excess debt. A car or house payment is usually not the excessive kind of debt.
  2. Invest in Your Children: If you don’t have children, feel free to skip this one. Investing in your children’s education is a tax deduction option. It is also generally perceived as a good parenting advice. Some parents what their kids to learn how to work and save money for their own education. You will have to be the one to find the proper balance for your children.
  3. The Stock Market: This option is familiar to many people. There are many options within the stock market. Mutual funds are a professionally managed long-term option with low risk. There are many investment companies available to manage your investment. The general advice for the stock market is “get in and stay in.” Short-term investments always have high risk.
  4. Currencies: This includes the USD, gold, silver, foreign currencies, and other forms of payment. One new form of currency worth noting is crypto-currency; a completely digital currency. In the long-term, currencies don’t perform as well as the stock market.
  5. Peer-to-Peer Lending: This is a relatively new way to directly invest in people. This is done through various online services that pair borrowers and lenders. There is also information provided on the level of risk involved for any given investment.
