 Tip #1: Start Investing – The Time To Invest Is Now

Youngsters, here is the best advice you can get: “Buy low and sell high.”  Okay, I’m being facetious, but we are in the middle of the biggest sell off in years, and it is a perfect time to put a toe-in-the-water and start investing. The sky is not falling. This is a correction, mostly due to China’s economic slowdown and fears over climbing interest rates.

During the 20th century the US stock market returned an average of 10.4% a year.  Just $1,000 invested in 1900 would be worth over $19.8 million by the end of 1999.  At a 15% average return per year, it only takes 30 years to turn R15 000 to R1 million. I’m not saying that we will average 10% returns, but we may. 

Tip #3: Stop The Excuses and Start Investing Now
