A guide to investing basics by the author of Broke Millennial, for anyone who feels like they aren’t ready (or rich enough) to get into the market
Millennials want to learn how to start investing. The problem is that most have no idea where to begin. There’s a significant lack of information out there catering to the concerns of new millennial investors, such as:
Should I invest while paying down student loans?
How do I invest in a socially responsible way?
What about robo-advisors and apps — are any of them any good?
Is Reddit a good resource for investment advice?
In this second book in the Broke Millennial series, Erin Lowry delivers all of the investment basics in one easy-to-digest package. Tackling topics ranging from common terminology to retirement savings and even how to actually buy a stock, this hands-on guide will help any investment newbie become a confident player in the market on their way to building wealth.
“A new book about money that teens and millennials will actually read….This not only has great insights and tips about handling money, but it’s written in a casual, relatable way.” Time
“Broke Millennial does a great job of presenting practical how-to money advice in a conversational way….The tone is one that makes you feel like, ’we’re all in this together,’ and not the typical talking to you like you’re a kid that you often find in other books geared toward young adults.” Jason Dorsey, bestselling author, millennial expert, and president of The Center for Generational Kinetics
“This book is well worth its list price….It’s the youthful perspective that makes this so refreshing. It’s well-written and researched by a millennial for millennials…without the judgment, sarcasm and superiority we older folks too often convey when we talk to young adults about money.” Michelle Singletary, The Washington Post
