First thing first is get yourself educated like learn first. For example, some people save 500 dollars want to invest money, I think that is foolish because 500 dollars even they make like 10% if they don't have the right education or the right way then they will end up wasting 500 dollars because they are eager to invest. So instead of investing, they should invest in education. Because education gives us leverage, should not immediately push the stone but build the leverage so the 500 dollars can use it in educating yourself, learn what is investing and trading about. Spend the whole 500 dollars to learn. A lot of people, once they have the money they will start to invest in REITs, trading and all these things which end up losing all the money. Instead, you should invest in yourself first. Focus on investing in yourself and get yourself leverage first.
