There are always excuses for people not reaching their full potential financially. One BIG excuse is a lack of knowledge or understanding about what to do to see your money increase.

This excuse, or lets call it a fear, is in no way wrong. Investing does take a great deal of knowledge and understanding. But it is when the fear becomes an excuse for not doing anything about your financial security that it becomes a problem.

While many think investing is a huge gamble of their finances and life security they have worked so hard for, the reality is it is actually a well mapped an educated decision to be WISE with your finances and not simply live from week to week.

There are three reasons why you may think it is wise investing.

  1. It gives you a plan for your finances, which helps you to keep your weekly budget stable.
  2. It repays with higher ‘interest’ than a bank ever will on a savings account.
  3. You can’t earn returns on money not invested. 


Of course, it is up to you what your ‘returns’ end up looking like. With enough knowledge about the market you are choosing to invest in you will be well on your way to wise investing.

still, It’s no surprise that many people don’t invest because of fear they know too little. Our society values learning how to earn money, but fails to teach us the principals on how to manage that money once we’ve earned it.  In saying that though, we also live in a society where education is literally at our fingertips (are you reading this on a smartphone? Told you!). There are no longer any excuses to be scared to invest.

The economy tends to run in a circle; like anything, history repeats itself, so advice from people who have already done the full loop is priceless.
