How to start investing in the Stock Market
Whenever I heard the word Stock Market, the first thing that comes in my mind is that, this is for rich people only.
I never considered investing for fear of being short of my budget allocation until the next payday.
But when I reached 28, I started thinking of saving, having my own house and car, putting up my business, and investing.
I tried reading several books about investing and watching YouTube videos about saving and investing.
But the more I read, the more I got confused since there were tons of information to be digested by a non-business minded person like me.
I tried to learn business jargon and understand their meaning in the context of business and finance.
When I finally decided that I wanted to start investing in the Stock Market, I immediately jumped in without proper and enough orientation thinking that I was a fast-learner and I could easily learn how it works.
I was wrong.
I lost the first thousands I invested because I did not know how to do it.
But I was even more confused upon learning that some of my friends are earning in the Stock Market.
At the back of my mind, what the heck are they doing?
What was the secret?
After office hours, I spent extra hours doing research about investing in the Stock Market.
One afternoon, I was strolling at Ayala Malls in Legazpi City, Albay, I stopped at the National Bookstore and found this thin yet powerful book of Bro. Bo Sanchez - My Maid Invests in the Stock Market... And Why You Should, Too!
I grabbed it and bought it.
After eating my C3 at Jollibee fastfood restaurant, I removed its plastic wrapper and began reading it right there.
I couldn't believe what I read.
I wished I learned Bo's advice in his book before I started investing.
He shared how his maid started investing in the Stock Market and how she got her first million.
Bo explained practical and concrete step or system in investing in the Stock Market which I carefully followed.
Now, I am confident that the money I am investing in the Stock Market is earning while I am sleeping.
If you think you are ready to start investing in the Stock Market, I highly recommend that you read Bo's book first so that you may avoid the mistakes I did.
