Start investing now
Don't wait. The sooner you start to invest, the better. Time is an investor's best friend because it gives your investments the best chance for growth.
The sooner one creates the good habit of regular investing the sooner you start participating in market growth.
Budget to invest
Only invest money that you set aside on a monthly basis to help grow your investments. This should never be money that you would need for day-to-day expense or money that you have borrowed.
Invest for the long term
Investing is a marathon and not a sprint. Make sure that you are happy with the idea that the money invested is not available to you for the near future
You're buying a company, not just shares
A share's performance is dependent on the company which in turn is dependent on the environment in which it operates. This includes its industry, the general economy, politics, its customers, etc.
Diversify your share portfolio
Spread your investment across different companies and over different sectors. The biggest risk in investing is putting all your eggs in one basket. The easiest way to diversify share investments is through exchange traded funds (ETF).
