Napkin Finance — How Are You Preparing for Retirement?

Nicole D.
What are you doing to prepare yourself for retirement? If you're reading along what tips have you found helpful from “Napkin Finance?” I don’t know about you, but I wish I had a time machine to send me back about a decade so I could get an earlier start on saving for retirement. I struggled with money in my 20s and didn’t have enough financial savvy to truly grasp the importance of starting at a young age. “Napkin Finance” is one of those books that people of all ages should get their hands...Read More...

How does one start investing in real estate?

Maryann
Hi everyone! I've been doing a lot of research on real estate investing. I know one way to do this is to become a landlord. I was curious if there is anyone in the community who owns and rents out homes, apartments, etc.? - If so, can you share any advice you have around getting started? - Is there anything you know now that you wished you would have known when you first started? And, if you're not a landlord but invest in real estate in other ways, I'd love to hear about your experiences...Read More...

Commercial Real Estate

Alex McDonough
In the article " If You Have More Than $1,000 in Your Checking Account, Make These 6 Moves" The first suggestion is to invest in commercial real estate.

Investment apps

Tim F.
I have been interested in the investment apps such as Stash, Acorns, and Robinhood. I've been using them for a while now, mostly Stash, and now have more income and would like to get more into investing. Now, I still don't have a bunch of money to invest. Which is why I enjoy Stash with the fractional shares. I like Acorns' of the ease of investment with the funds already picked out. And I like the free trade and ease of trade on Robinhood. I have a 401k through my employer so that is my big...Read More...

Masterworks

When it sales in a few years, you split the profits with other share holders. Wondering how to find out if this is actually legitimate or even a good idea.Read More...

Cryptocurrency

Adrienne Morgan
I inherited a chunk of money recently. I decided I would finally buy a house (I rent now). My credit is yuck so I figured a 20% down payment. And I had enough to fix my new house up a bit too. But.......the house prices have gone so high, I just can’t do it! So I’m going to wait a few years. In the meantime, I am very interested in investing in cryptocurrency. I know it’s risky. But you can also make a ton! Investing in the stock market nowadays is no good. Any advice?Read More...

How to capitalize from the stock market panic right now.

Elon Must Save
Hi Team, This post is going to be short and straight forward. Because of the panic due to Covid 19 the stock market has plummeted. It recently saw the biggest drop in a single day since 2008. So what to do. The best thing to do is open an investing account. If you have more than $10k then open a Vanguard account and buy the S&P 500 index fund. Its symbol is VOO. If you have less than 10K then sign up for the Robinhood app on iPhone and Android. This is a commission-free platform. Then do...Read More...
