Portfolio for Beginners

The hardest step of doing anything is getting started.

When I talk to various people (friends, co-workers, people on the internet), they often say 'I would love to invest and grow my wealth, but I have no idea how or where to start!'. Its true. While the concept of investing or why you should invest, is not a hard one to grasp, or a hard one to accept, many people get stuck on how to begin doing it. To an outsider, the world of investments often looks at best confusing, and at worst, scary. So many investments to choose from, where do I start?  What makes the process of getting started even more difficult, is that beginner investors often have a fear of seeing paper losses.

Today's your lucky day. I'm going to help you get started with a portfolio for beginners. I will even track it over time to see how you would have done, had you actually followed through on it.

First, let's set some rules, or guidelines, regarding portfolio management.
