How would you like to earn money without doing anything? Sounds good to me!! Seriously, though, as you’ll see, when you invest, you can make your money work for you! You see, when you invest, your money can work much harder than it does in a savings account, so you may earn even more than just interest.
Savings and checking accounts are great for cash you use day to day, and for short-term goals or emergencies. But for the big goals — like your education or a home — investing is the way to go. That’s when you’ll need your money to really work hard for you — and grow.
Investing is something you’ll have to wait to do — until you’re an adult 18 or older. But just learning about investing now can help you strengthen your skills for future investing.
