When I was young, everything I knew about investing I learned from TV. This was how you invested: You call guys in suits to buy a stock, and then they go to the trading floor and yell that order as loud as they can, and somehow the money lands in your account and you become […] The post How a Non-Rich Person Started Investing, and Why You Should Start, Too appeared ...

*If there’s one money topic I don’t have firsthand experience in, it’s real estate. As a New Yorker, buying an apartment is not for me.
