10 Easy Steps to Investing for a Brighter Future

Investing is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your family. Whether you’re a seasoned investor or just getting started this post is going to walk you through easy steps to investing without a financial advisor.

1. Establish SMART financial goals

It's hard to go somewhere when you don't know where your going. Establish simple, measurable, actionable, realistic, and time-bound goals to get started.

2. Create a budget

You have to know how much you can afford to invest before you start investing. Don't go into debt to make an investment.

3. Check out work investment plans first

If you have a job, look into employer-sponsored investment plans like a 401k, 403b, and health savings account first. When it's employer-matched, that's free money.

4. Open an investment account

You have lots of choices here.  I personally love TD Ameritrade, Charles Schwab, and Acorns (for round-ups). Be sure to choose Roth IRA if you're eligible.

5. Learn to Pay Yourself First

Set-up automatic payments to your newly opened brokerage account. Be sure to refer to your budget regularly to stay on track.
