The basics of finances still aren't being taught in school, and even though some investors have been out of education for years, it can be very difficult to know where to get beneficial advice. How can investors boost their financial knowledge, so they can make smarter money and investment moves?
It’s vital to always be learning. Things like tax law, regulation over investments, and technology are constantly changing. This means it can be relatively quick to catch up on the current landscape of options for investing, saving, managing money, and saving for retirement. Yet, it is vital that we do, or see all our dreams for the future washed out.
Here are five ways to enhance your money knowledge, without having to take any major detours back to college, or having to just take the trial and error approach…
Books are one of the most common ways to learn. They have been for centuries. You can devour them on the weekend, read a few pages at lunch time, listen to audio books in your car, or turn to the blogs of good authors who make much of this information more concise and easier to digest.
2. Home Study Courses
Home study course can provide more robust and targeted learning than general books. They may be in text book form, CDs, or a combination of online videos and Q&A modules, and offline materials. If you really want to learn and master something, a course can be a smart choice.
Webinars or ‘web-classes’ are online educational presentations, which offer live and up to the minute insights on financial market changes, new investment opportunities, tax strategies, and more. It’s a way to get a condensed and rapid upgrade to your financial acumen in 60 to 90 minutes. You can tune in from your office desktop, a tablet at home, or on your mobile phone, on the go.
One of the best ways to learn about what others are doing, and what is working for them, is to network. You get to get a real feel for them, and an authentic insight into the money moves others are making. You can do this at organized local networking events, at live seminars, and more. You may even do this in online forums.
5. Meet with Professionals
You can also learn, and get personalized advice by meeting with financial experts one on one. Tax experts, attorneys, and real estate professionals. Set up lunch appointments with them, go to their offices, or arrange phone consultations to get tips on new strategies and moves you might not have thought of yet.
