A couple of weeks back I asked all the listeners to fill out a brief survey about the podcast to help improve the show. One of the questions I asked was, “What topics would you like to see covered more on the show?” Well, the results are in and one of the most requested topics was investing. Investing is not one of my strong areas and I am NOT a professional in investing, but there are some things you need to consider before starting to invest.

Today we cover investing 101 by giving you some general advice on investing. Topics covered on the show include: what do we mean when we use the phrase “investing,” whether or not to use an investment professional, what is the right mix of stocks, bonds, and cash to have, the importance of having a long term mindset when we invest, and what to look for in a mutual fund.
