Is investing part of adulting? The truth about saving and investing
One of the most common questions we get from students—especially those looking at graduation—is, “When should I start investing?”
What we don’t hear is, “When should I start saving?”
That’s because investments are way sexier to talk about.
You don’t hear anyone talking about all the money they make with their savings account. But you do hear stories about people who make lots of money by “playing the market.”
If savings accounts aren’t going to make you much money, then why would you put money in them instead of investments?
Because your savings account can save your booty, that’s why.
