Investing for Beginners- Steps You Can Start Taking Now | HDM 389

Did you know that about 42% of Americans don’t own stock? That’s according to a Motley Fool study. The number of Latinos is likely much lower than that. Of course the reason? Fear of investing. Today I bring you a woman who will help you lose your fear of investing. 

Tess Waresmith is a financial coach and the founder of Money Confident, a financial education program aimed at women in their 30s and 40s. After losing $80k in bad investments in her twenties, Tess educated herself on wealth building and increased her net worth from 0 to 1 million by the age of 35. Now, she helps women learn simple investing strategies to grow their money, even if they’re short on time or new to investing.

  • The costly mistake she made when starting to invest
  • One thing you can do starting now when investing feels to overwhelming and complicated
