Wealthy Habits: Invest Where You Spend

Making the decision to begin your wealth journey through investing is one of the best decisions you will ever make for your future self and your family. Why? Because investing is a very effective method of building wealth, as it is a means of putting your money to work. Many persons, however, have a fear of investing, this is often a result of them simply not having enough information to understand the power of it, believing it’s something that’s only for those who are already wealthy, or they may just lack the confidence to do so, so they hold off on investing out of fear of losing their money. If you are new to investing, knowing exactly where to start can be a bit overwhelming, especially when deciding where to invest your money. One of the best ways to overcome this and start your investing journey is considering to invest where you spend. 

Familiarity can be a good starting point for a new investor. When choosing where to invest money new investors can examine the companies they already know. Think about where you make purchases for food, fuel, pharmaceuticals, brand of electronics or vehicles, even where you make financial transactions, those companies that have become household names in the market and have, for the most part, consistently done well over the years. You purchase the products and services from these companies on a regular basis, it makes sense to invest in them by purchasing stocks and making bond investments. Here’s a thought: your spending preferences and habits allow these companies to thrive and profit, if they are giving you the opportunity to share in those profits through investing, why wouldn’t you want to take full advantage of that? 

Now before you go running out to buy stocks in your favorite companies there are a few things you have to note. Even though investing where you spend is a good starting point for investors it does not eliminate the fact that you will still need to do your research. Knowledge is power and learning about and understanding a company’s performance is crucial. Investing, like everything else in life, comes with various levels of risks and as such making a proper risk assessment of these companies is of the utmost importance.
