Be sure to watch through until the end of the video and take notes as we will be going into a full in-depth explanation on everything that you need about investing for teenagers. Even if you think you’re too young, just know that it’s not impossible to invest from an early age. I wish I had known the things I talk about in the video when I was a teenager, because I would’ve been able to take full advantage of compound interest. The earlier you start, the sooner your money could start compounding (1 year in the long run can be the difference of $500k!!!).
