If you were investing for the first time, would you take out all your savings? Remember one rule: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Money begets money is good, but first you have to determine how much you can afford to invest and what your financial goals are.
Figure out how much money you can invest. It’s important to set aside 3-6 months of living expenses! Don’t use this money to invest. The future is often unpredictable, so keep your options open. After that, it would be great to have a discretionary savings account.
So determine how much you should keep and how much you can invest. Unless you have money from other sources, such as a continuing part-time income, this will probably be all that you currently have to invest in.
Next, determine how much you can increase your investment in the future. If you have a job, you will continue to receive income, and over time you can plan to use some of that income to build your portfolio. Work with a qualified financial planner to develop a budget and determine how much income you can invest in the future. With the help of a financial planner, you can make sure that your investments are within reasonable limits and not beyond what you can afford.
In addition, some types of investments require a certain initial investment amount. If you have done your research, find a reliable investment so that you know what your initial investment will be. But if you don’t have enough money to make the initial investment you need, consider other investments please. Never borrow money to invest, never use money you don’t have set aside to invest!
It’s important to stay sane. Don’t get carried away by the urge to make money.
Hope you have a good start!
