The ups and downs of investing have been crazy the past few years. With the rise and fall of certain companies, you could have done really well if you got in on some of the actions. For example, stocks like GME (GameStop) went from $3-ish in 2020 to nearly $500 per share when loyal customers decided they didn’t want the company to go down and started buying up stock. This was amazing for investors because if you had invested $300 in GME in 2020, your stock would have been worth $50,000 at the beginning of 2021. You may have heard of the Missouri dad that invested and made a million after Reddit users bought up the game stop stock to raise prices.
This story caught the attention of many. In fact, the amount of new investors is unprecedented and it’s time you considered jumping aboard the train soon. However, stocks like GME and day trading are often volatile so learning the best ways to invest is essential to your stock market success.
I started investing when I was 24 and have made quite a bit in “safe funds” yet, back then my only option was to hire a financial planner, some of my money is still tied up and I am working on rolling it over so I can manage things myself and lose the fees. Yet, it was fine to get started.
Did you know you have WAY more options than I did back in 2001 when I initially started investing? The best part is these ways to invest are safe and you can DIY your investing if you are comfortable and do a little research.
Do you believe in superstitions? If you searched “Is Right Hand Itching Lottery Luck?” chances are you are at least interested in finding out if this superstition really works and perhaps are considering buying a lottery ticket, since the current jackpot is over $400 million (April 2022). -wouldn’t that be nice!
However, I often watch the show “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV and most people do not mention their right or left hands-for that matter – itching before they won big. Many think being superstitious is complete hogwash.
Although on a recent trip to Florida my sons and I visited a crystal shop. My son picked out a green aventurine rock which is said to bring abundance. He continued to run around the beach saying, “Abundance rock give me money!” Funny as it sounds, he actually found a bunch of change on that trip and his brother found a $5 bill on the beach. Was this from the “abundance rock” or was this just simple kids’ luck looking for money? I guess it depends on if you believe in superstitions or not.

Often people wonder if what they are making is enough. You may be asking yourself, is $40,000 a good salary? And the answer really depends.
$40,000 per year salary is less than the average salary in the United States, Nonetheless, depending on the city you live in and your lifestyle, $40,000 may work for you. Furthermore, if you live in a low-cost area and don’t have many bills, $40,000 is a good salary. However, if you are well-established in your field and have a family to support, $40,000 won’t’ be enough.
