Investing 101

Investing 101 is your introduction course into all things investing.  Think of this like taking a finance class, but in bite size pieces.  Each episode in this series is meant to build upon each other in order to teach you the fundamentals of investing.  

My goal is that at the end of this series you will feel more confident when the topic of investing comes up.  Because the more confident you are, the more likely you will be to go out and ask questions and take charge of building your retirement.
