Investing 101

Summer is here! I don’t know about you, but I find that summer is a great time to read up on a new financial literacy topic. Kicking off the warm weather reading is the topic of investing! Everyone wants to know how to make their money work for them, but investing can be daunting to understand.

I’m loving this article from the SEC detailing the Top 10 Investing Tips for College Students. Learn the investing basics and pitfalls to be aware of as you start your investing journey. You can also check out the below resources for more information on personal finance and investing topics.

Plus, don’t forget about your access to AAMC Financial Wellness! Sign up for free using UMKC as your school to start utilizing the online money management dashboard. Once you’ve logged in, get started with the Saving and Investing course.

Happy reading!
