How to Start Investing…

Hey Everyone!

The whole purpose of my blog is to get more women investing and bring you along on my investment journey. There is no better way to get more people investing than to show them how it’s done.

Let me help you get your hands on your first share!

To help you achieve this goal, I decided to create a 5 part blog series on how to start investing, with a particular focus on those who may not have a large amount of disposable income or knowledge on where to start. Which is exactly how I started, so have no fear!

In this 5 part series, I will touch on the following topics:

  • Why women need to invest…
  • Why you should start investing NOW…
  • How to buy your first share…
  • How to pick stocks easily and where to put them…
  • Other tips and tricks…

So, without further ado, let’s get this series started!

Happy Investing,
Heather

Note: As I publish each post, I will put a link on this page 🙂

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂 One fact that surprises people is that you don’t need a lot of money to get started. I will touch on different ways to purchase a share in the coming posts.

  1. Great idea for a series, and one I will share with my wife (who isn’t interested in investing at all).

    I seem to recall reading a few articles at different points that talk about how women tend to make better investors than men, so it is great that you’re putting this series together to help encourage others to invest.

    1. Yeah, hopefully people will get something useful out of it 🙂 Have you ever heard of Helena Morrissey before? She was the former head of Newton Investment Management.

      I’ve heard that point too about women and men investing differently, but I do know that the motivators behind investing can definitely be different (like #fire and early retirement vs providing for family or quality of life).

      1. I have not heard of her before, so I will need to do some reading.

        In my opinion, I think a big factor in the success with investing between men and women is that men may have a greater tendency to let their ego drive decisions whereas women tend to be more practical and remain consistent to their strategy.

        1. That’s an interesting fact about women and men investing. I’ve met quite a few men whose only exposure and interest in investing is day trading, options and hedge funds. Not saying you can’t make money this way, but there is much more risk.

          Helena Morrissey, she started off at the bond desk (I believe), and then moved up from there. Did I mention she also has 9 kids. I am only a few behind her. LoL Supposedly, moms of large families make good CEOs.
