How to Invest

Investing: The Evidence

Want to get rich from investing?

Perhaps you've tried to read articles like this one and said, "Nope, too long," or perhaps you find the jargon too technical and headache-inducing!

If this describes you, you need to watch these brief videos!

Maybe it's not you; perhaps you've got a friend/spouse/child/neighbor who can't be bothered to learn about this stuff, no matter how many times you tell them that it's crucial for the future!

Whatever the case may be, in the time it takes to watch a mind-numbingly stupid 30-minute TV show, you can learn what you need to know about investing!

[SPOILER ALERT: minimize costs, don't try to time the market, and don't believe people who tell you that they can].

Robin J. Powell of The Evidence-Based Investor and writer of such insightful articles as this one and this one, has undertaken the narration of a great YouTube series on the basic principles of good investing.

It amounts to all the investing advice you'll needin only 30 minutes!

Don't trust me? Okay, here's somebody else saying the same type of thing.

Or perhaps you'll believe retired investment professionals-turned-nonfiction-authors, such as Paul Merriman and John Bogle.
