I must be throwing off a strong "dad vibe" these days. And that's got me thinking maybe my chance conversations with a number of young adults lately is a sign of the times.
As I've been going about my daily routines, I've run into a lot of young adults my daughters' age who want to get invested but have no clue how to do so. They have income, but they don't know where to start.
For instance, once, while skiing at the Kirkwood Mountain Resort near Lake Tahoe, I chatted with three young adults who jumped at the chance to get my advice about investing.
I told them about a surefire way to make the market work for them as though I were talking to my own daughters.
I'll name a "starter" investment, of course – one I always recommend for young folks to get them on the right track – plus three other tech-centric ways to jumpstart your investing today.
This will get you into the markets, absolutely, but as you'll see in a minute, you'll enjoy a double-digit edge that will make other investors green with envy…
