I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to start investing in stocks as a teenager. That early start is what led me to pursue a degree in finance. When I began modeling at the age of 15, I quickly started thinking about the future, and I knew that my interest bearing savings account was not going to be the answer to my financial freedom. I often wondered,"How do I start Investing?" I overheard a conversation between my mom and her friend about investing in stocks and hearing them discuss double-digit returns had me very intrigued. That conversation cracked the door to the whole new world and connected me to a financial advisor that opened my first investment account. If you are looking to start investing, but are unsure of the path to take, my advice below may be the guide you are looking for.
My husband sent me a link to an article about Digit, a company that is changing the way you save money. When I read the article, I was immediately intrigued, so obviously, I tweeted them. CEO and Co-Founder, Ethan Bloch, to my surprise, tweeted me back! We were able to set up a time to chat, and he gave me the inside scoop on his new company. Digit is a free service that connects to your checking account, analyzing your spending and transferring small amounts of money into a savings account for you. This is perfect for anyone who needs to automate their savings, and it's an easy way to save money without any financial planning!
