What I have done starting off is first payed off all my debt. Then I looked at all the avenues of investing to pick which one or few I am going to stick to. I think you are better off focusing on a few avenues rather than investing in a ton of different ones. The more you learn about a specific topic the better advantage you will have on others who aren't as experienced in it. I would advise to learn as much as you can before putting a lot of money into something. But on the job experience I believe is the best way to learn. Just go out there with the knowledge you have and money you would be willing to lose and then learn from your mistakes and also successes. An alternative way I have found to learn about investing and personal finance is a game called "CashFlow" Here is the link. CashFlow. It shows you how the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor. Thank you for following I hope I can help all of you to be more successful in all ways of life. If you have any questions or topics you want me to hit on just message me and let me know.
