5 Investment Tips for 30 Somethings

So you’ve spent the past 10 years or so of your life working and saving everything you can. Your sick of watching your hard earned money sit in a low savings bank account day in and day out earning little interest. You’ve finally decided that its time to put those savings into some form of investment but need some tips to get you started.

Consider your options

There are so many different types of investment opportunities out there, and choosing one can sometimes be a little overwhelming. Compile a list of all the different types you can find and decide which one best suits you and your individual needs. Many people make the mistake of rushing into the first investment opportunity they find, and miss out on many others that they didn’t even know existed.

Investment Tips

 What’s your current situation?

Some investments require long term involvement and need to be monitored frequently. Others, however, need little input from you other than your initial investment. If your strapped for time it might be wise to consider the latter of the two, to ensure you don’t get in over your head. Some investments also require larger amounts of start up capital, so choose an investment that best suits your financial situation.

Invest money you are willing to lose

Let’s face it, as much as we would like investments to always work out, this is not always the case. Sometimes, money is lost and if it is, you still need enough money to pay the bills and put food on the table. Only invest money that you are both willing and able to lose. Don’t get overly hasty and invest next week’s grocery money on a handful of stocks and hope for the best.

Patience is a virtue… especially when investing

Investment is not for those looking for a get rich quick scheme, if that’s what you want you’re better off going to your nearest casino and hoping you’ll score big on the slot machines. Even short-term investments take time, faith and patience in order to pay off.

Investments are a great way to make your money work providing you do your research and have dedication and patience. Consider all your investment possibilities and choose ones that work for you. Stick with it and your investments will be paying off in no time.
