Beginner's Guide to Investing

by Erin Lowry


Many of us think that we're too young, too busy, or too broke to start investing. Well, if you want to get your finances sorted, to make full use of your savings, and to organize a burden-free retirement, a bit of math can't hurt.

Meet Erin Lowry, who's spent most of her non-investment life risk-free, playing by the book. When she got into the investment business, Lowry realized that investment is more than gambling. It's about ownership, about taking responsibility. She proves this in her famous book series, Broke Millennial, in which she encourages young people to stop whining and start investing.

In Beginner's Guide to Investing, Erin Lowry makes it even easier for you to familiarize yourself with all the lingo, what works and what doesn't, and how you should invest according to your own needs and goals.
