A couple of friends asked me for advice on this topic, so I collected my thoughts and turned them into a blog post. This input is general by design. I want to make it helpful to the largest possible group.
What this article is not: deeply detailed, time-sensitive advice or stock tips. I am personally wary of that type of opinion, but there’s plenty of it out there if you want it.
What this article provides are basic principles that a novice can understand, but that anyone can apply. I believe in keeping investments simple, so you don’t get in your own way or lose sight of what you’re trying to accomplish. This advice is meant to help people grow their money throughout their careers, not to get rich quick.
