    Don't wait to invest... invest and then wait

    Don't wait to invest... invest and then wait

    Since the creation of the first company, nothing has created more wealth for more people than investing in companies. A lot of this wealth creation is due to the awesome power of compounding. In this episode, Alec and Bryce break down how this works, and look at how compounding has historically held true across the US and Australian markets.
    Also, Einstein agrees... “Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it; he who doesn't, pays it.”

    Don't work for the company, *own* the company

    Don't work for the company, *own* the company

    On Get Started Investing, We've kind of talked about this topic before, but we thought it was important to revisit WHY we invest. Because as everyday people we can benefit from the pioneering work of the best minds in the world, simply by buying shares in their companies. Instead of working *for* the companies - relying on them to approve our pay rises - we can flip the script. Get the best CEOs to work for you, all you need to do is buy their shares.
