Since you are searching for “how to get started investing”, I’m assuming you understand the importance of investing… but just haven’t gotten started yet.

The truth is, you probably should have started investing years ago (possibly decades ago). But that’s OK, because there is no time like the present.

I do want to warn you right from the start…

 


I’m going to share with you MY PLAN for how to get started investing that leads to lifelong financial security. This is NOT what you’ll find on most personal finance sites.


 

Look, I’m not going to lie to you. Any kind of investing is better than no investing. But if you want potentially life-changing wealth, you’ll need to do things differently than what is commonly recommended.

I did some quick research and here are the most common searches:

How to get started investing…

… in stocks
… in penny stocks
… in mutual funds
… in index funds
… in real estate
… in rental properties.

Most of these investing opportunities are very difficult to learn, extremely costly to get started or won’t produce the kinds of gains you need if you’re getting started late. It’s no wonder why you haven’t started investing yet.

However, if you are interested in investing your extra money to reach financial security in the time you have… you are in the right place.

Please read this page from top to bottom.

Later you can use the Table Of Contents and Related Information to go back to the specific section you are interested in exploring in more detail. But for now, just read everything through once.

Just like everything else on this site, this is the information I wish someone would have shared with me when I got started investing.

 


Why You Need To Get

Started Investing NOW…
Not Later

So far, I’ve been throwing the word “investing” around without really defining it. So, let’s define investing now…

Investing is the act of allocating resources, usually money, with the expectation of generating an income or profit. – investopedia.com

Basically, investing is when you put your money to work to make more money.

This is really smart when you think about it. Working hard and saving more has limitations.

  • There are only so many hours in a day you can work.
  • You can only save so much and still live a fulfilling life.

But with investing there are no limits.

 


The more money you put to work,

the more potential profits you can make.


 

But there is another big reason you should start investing now, not later.

Inflation.

Put simply, inflation is the rate at which the cost of goods and services rises over time. It could also be thought of as a reduction in the value of a dollar, because consumers are now able to purchase less than they previously could with the same dollar bill. – businessnewsdaily.com

This explains why you don’t want to save your money by burying it in the backyard. By the time you dig it up again… it is worth less than when you buried it.

Simply saving money through hard work and discipline is undermined by inflation.

But by investing you can achieve two wonderful things:

  1. By beating inflation, your future money maintains its value.
  2. And the money you put to work creates MORE money.

So basically, your money doesn’t lose value, and you have MORE of it. That’s a win-win situation. That is why you need to get started investing as soon as possible.



Compound Interest:

The Investors Best Friend

Lifelong Financial Security

 

Our goal is to make as much money as possible from our investments over time. And one of the ways we can accomplish this is by harvesting the power of compound interest.

Compound interest – meaning that the interest you earn each year is added to your principal, so that the balance doesn’t merely grow, it grows at an increasing rate – is one of the most useful concepts in finance. – moneychimp.com

Here is how compound interest works…

Let’s say you invest $1,000 and get a 10% yearly return on your investment. That would be $100 profit at the end of the year.

The next year starts with $1,100. So the same 10% return is now $110 in profit.

Same return on your investment, but MORE profits.

Here is an example of the power of compound interest over the long term…

Let’s use the same example as above, but over 30 years:

 

Lifelong Financial Security

 

 

If you would have taken your $100 profit out every year you would have made $3,000. But with the power of compound interest… you made $16,449 instead.

That is the power of compound interest. And as you can see, over time, compound interest can skyrocket your profits. (This is another reason you should get started investing as soon as possible).

But what happens if you get a late start and don’t have 30 years? That’s the problem with compound interest. In order to take advantage of its immense power… you need time.



Building The Wealth You Need

In The Time You Have

By the time I got really excited about investing and the power of compound interest, I was in my 40’s. And when I researched investment opportunities I was not impressed with what I saw.

Here is what I found…

Average Savings Account Interest Rates: +0.09% (FDIC). If you are lucky and know where to look, you can get a savings account with 2% interest

 

Average Mutual Fund Over 7 Major Categories: 6%-7% average annualized return (Thebalance.com)

 

Average 5-year CD: Under 2% for most of the last 10 years. (Thebalance.com)

 

Average Ten-Year Treasuries: 2.66% over the last 10 years. (Thebalance.com)

 

10-year annualized return on real estate investments is just 3.45%, as measured by the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price NSA Index.

 

And as I calculated my possible returns with these common investment methods… I became very discouraged.

  • I didn’t have a lot of money to invest.
  • And I didn’t have 40 years to wait.

Sadly, it was too late for these types of investments to add up to much… even with compound interest. I needed to be able to do in 10-20 years what other investors do in 30-40 years.

But I knew investing and compound interest was the key to accumulating the kind of wealth I wanted.

So, I didn’t give up.

I looked for alternative ways to put my money to work to make more money.

And after years of research, trial and error and analysis, I finally figured out how to build the wealth I needed with the time I had.



Trading The Forex Market –

My “Wealth Building Engine”

Lifelong Financial SecurityYou may not think of the Forex Market as an investment opportunity. I didn’t either at first, to my detriment.

But after a couple of epiphanies and a fundamental shift in my thinking I was able to strategically design a profitable way of trading.

And to my pleasant surprise, I could annihilate the returns of other investment opportunities.

 



  • Account 1: 2352% profits over 5 years (470.4% average yearly gains)

  • Account 2: 2113% profits over 5 years (422.6% average yearly gains)

  • Account 3: 2794% profits over 5 years (558.8% average yearly gains)


 

Now we are talking.

With the potential for these types of profits and the power of compounding I could accumulate wealth faster and reach my wealth goals in the time I have.

The more I looked at this way of trading, the better I liked it. Even with a small initial investment, I had the power to make more money than other investments.

I compared what my best account did against what the same investment would have gained investing in the S&P 500, Apple, Google, Netflix and Amazon.

 


Not only did I beat them all… I beat them all COMBINED with 5 TIMES less investment.



  • My Account: $2,000 investment for $55,893 profit over 5 years.

  • All The Stocks: $10,000 investment ($2,000 each) for $28,535 profit over 5 years.


 

What is even more impressive is I do all this in just 1 minute a day.

It is no wonder Forex trading is the “Wealth Building Engine” of my lifelong financial security plan. And what’s even better… I can teach you to do this too.

When I realized the potential of taking an active role in investing and alternative ways of doing so, I looked for other things I could do.


 

Trading The Gold Market –
Additional Income Streams

Gold Trading Blast OffWith the profitability of trading the Forex market, you might think there is no need to branch out into other markets. But I’m not one to let a great investment opportunity pass me by.

The gold market is one such opportunity.

One of the tactics I use to increase my earning potential to any income level I want is trading multiple trading accounts. The goal is to have each account beat other investment opportunities over the long term. And each new income stream contributes to my overall wealth accumulation efforts.

Diversification by adding gold to my Forex trading activities allows me to add additional income streams. This helps me to reach my financial goals even faster.

I mean, when you can DOUBLE your profits compared to the S&P 500 in only 1 minute a day… why not, right?

Investing In Bitcoin –

My “If-Then Fund”

Lifelong Financial SecurityBitcoin, and Cryptocurrency in general, is a relatively new development. And I have to admit, I didn’t even explore this in the beginning.

  • I didn’t buy 1 Bitcoin when it cost $10
  • And I didn’t sell my Bitcoin when the price hit $20,000

Of course, I wish I did. But unfortunately, I didn’t.

But just because I missed out on this initial profit potential does not mean I want to sit on the sidelines forever.

  • Some people predict Bitcoin will eventually crash and burn.
  • Others think it will rise to $100,000 a Bitcoin.

The truth is, nobody knows. I certainly don’t know.

But here is what I DO know…

 


IF Bitcoin rises in value over time,

THEN I want some


 

And even more importantly…

 


IF Bitcoin rises in value over time,

THEN I want MORE Bitcoin


 

I consider Bitcoin to be my “If-Then Fund”. I don’t really know what is going to happen in the future. But if something big does happen with Bitcoin, I don’t want to be sitting on the sidelines.

I don’t want to miss out like I did in the past.

Getting involved with Bitcoin can be as simple as buying some and holding it to see what the future brings.

Or, you could take a more active role and GROW your Bitcoin holdings so if Bitcoin does increase in value in the future… you’ll have MORE of it.

Either way, I’ll teach you how.

Gold And Silver Investing –

My “Armageddon Fund”

Lifelong Financial Security

Have you ever held a gold coin, or gold or silver bar? There is something about the weight of it in your hand. The shininess.

It just feels valuable.

And I have to admit, this is part of the reason I added buying gold and silver bullion to my long-term investment plan. I think precious metals are cool.

But not everybody thinks buying gold and silver is a good investment idea.

Let’s look at this statement:

“Gold has underperformed compared to the S&P 500 in the 10-year period ending Jan. 26, 2018, with the S&P GSCI index generating 3.27% compared to the The S&P 500, which has returned 10.36% over the same period.”

– investopedia.com

From a pure investing standpoint, investing your money in the S&P 500 makes more sense because there is more profit potential.

But I don’t look at investing in gold and silver as a way to make the most profit possible. That is what my Forex trading and Bitcoin investing is for.

I look at buying gold and silver bullion as a way of preserving value.

Remember how we talked about how inflation erodes the value of your money over time? If we want our money to maintain its value, we need to match or beat inflation with our investment.

Average Inflation Rate: +3.15% since 1913 (inflationdata.com).

So, if the average inflation rate is +3.15% and the average yearly return of gold is +3.27, gold does a pretty good job of maintaining its value over the long term.

But there is another reason I like buying gold and silver bullion… global turmoil. During times of political and economic struggle, gold is looked at as a safe haven.

Check this out…


Economic Crisis in 2008

Low of $679 in October 2008

High of $1920 in September 2011



Pandemic in 2020

Low of $1451 in March 2020

$2048 at time of writing this


This is why I call buying gold and silver bullion my “Armageddon Fund”. If something goes wrong in the world, as it seems to be doing with increasing frequency, I want a portion of my money already sitting in a safe haven.

Investing your extra money to make more money is PART of that plan. But in order to get the most out of this site, it is a good idea to understand the entire plan.

The Life Changing Power Of Investing

If you want the peace of mind that comes with financial security, you need to start investing. Working harder and saving more simply won’t get you there, regardless of the size of your paycheck.

“Financial peace isn’t the acquisition of stuff. It’s learning to live on less than you make, so you can give money back and have money to invest. You can’t win until you do this.” – Dave Ramsey

So, how do you get started investing?

Simple. Take your extra money and do something with it that makes more money.

But if you want the highest profit potential, and especially if you are getting a late start, you’ll have to start thinking outside the box.

“How many millionaires do you know who have become wealthy by investing in savings accounts? I rest my case.” – Robert G. Allen

I’ve identified ways to build the wealth I need in the time I have:

  • I use strategic Forex trading as my “Wealth Building Engine”.
  • Bitcoin investing is my “If-Then Fund” – IF Bitcoin increases in value, THEN I want more of it.
  • And I look at buying gold and silver as my “Armageddon Fund” – a safe haven to maintain value, especially in times of worldwide turmoil.

Since you’ve probably not seen a wealth building plan like this before, it might make you nervous. And that’s good. Because being uncomfortable might just mean you are on to something.

“In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable.” – Robert Arnott

The point is… you need to be investing. It is just the smart thing to do. It could literally change your life.

So, here is what you need to do if you want to get started investing like I do (and build the wealth you need in the time you have)
