That was me 3 years ago too! I started like a lost puppy, failed massively, and lost money rather than making it...

Here's how I learned to bounce back and make $10K through investing.


Don't Quick Search

Are you thinking of Googling: "Top 10 investments to make money"?

Avoid FOMO

I had a friend named Jeff who bragged about how he made thousands of dollars from buying penny stocks that he said I should buy now.

  • I felt FOMO (feeling of missing out)

    bought Jeff's stock, and lost thousands of dollars the next day.

  • Guess what? That stock never went up again and I even lost more money!

You will lose money. It's part of the investing game, but you will also gain more if you make the right moves and do your research.

When you self-reflect and understand what you feel comfortable losing from time to time, the emotional game of investing will be easier.

Trust the Process

Money won't appear overnight. Investing is a long-term game with riches that will be presented to you later.

Don't compare yourself to others who have been investing for years. They're successful because they focus on the journey and continue to do their research. It's never too late, you just need to start.
