Hi, friends! Sorry for the disappearing act. When I went to NYC, I was in full-on vacation mode: no work, no blog, no email, no nothing. It was wonderful. Unfortunately, the minute I got home, I was hit with one of the worst colds I’ve had in… I don’t even know how long. I’ve been stuck on the couch since Tuesday, and only just started to feel a bit better yesterday. But I’m here now!
Today’s post has been a long time coming. When I held those meet-ups in Vancouver and Toronto last summer, one topic that came up over and over again in our discussions was investing – and many of you asked when I’d write about it. (PS – Should we do more of those this year!? You tell me!) The truth is, back then, I still wasn’t comfortable with my investing knowledge. But as I’ve made progress in the Canadian Securities Course, read more and more blogs about it, and finally started to see my money grow, my comfort level has gone from I-don’t-know-anything to I-know-a-few-things. So, I figured it was time to tell you about my journey with investing over the last 10 years. Note that this post is crazy long. I considered dividing it into a couple posts, but I love seeing it all in one place.
Are you ready for this? Let’s start from the beginning…
