Here is what our members say about us...
"In my circle of friends there is no one really interested in being succesfull or making money. They just live their lives, accepting their jobs and living in their own reality (is it their own reality or is it the reality society wants them to believe?) ... no offense ... if people are happy living this way, they should. But, I believe when you talk about success and money etc with these kind of people you are not learning stuff ... that is the reason that I became a member of this great forum. It gives me the opportunity to talk with people with the same interests and goals in life"

Starting to invest

Post by brendan on Wed Oct 13, 2010 8:15 am

Many greetings.

Guys I have just come into some money. It's enough to be really interested in investing but, as I have never had money really, I have absolutely no idea.

So I need some advice.

What should be my first step? What kind of a person should I talk to? What are the courses and books that will advice me well in these times of crisis and recession?

All input here will be more than welcome.

Probably a financial planner. Before doing that, find someone you know who is good with money and get some advise or recommendations on who to see.

I recommend that you read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert's a great book to start with and an absolute classic.

Then go onto books by Warren Buffet

I agree with aydinmo. "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" is a fantastic read. I would also recommend Wall Street Journal: Complete Money and Investing Guidebook. It is a great foundation for all things investment related. It doesn't really get too heavy into strategy, but it explains all the different markets and their relationships. It will give you a good foundation of the lingo and how things work so that you can ask intelligent questions.
