Welcome to the new age of investing!
Instead of my typical recipe, today I bring you something closer to home – a company and website that my husband has started called Instavest.
Instavest is the company that will be taking my husband and I to San Francisco next month. I’m so sad to leave DC and my great circle of friends-turned-family that I’ve cultivated over the past five years. 🙁 I’m excited to see where the next journey takes us though…
Now for the reason why we’re going to be in Cali Cali…
Have you ever been curious about how to invest in the stock market? When I was younger I swear I’ve googled (or rather “Ask Jeeve’d”) “what is the stock market?” many times. It was was/is/maybe-always-will-be a strange world to me. Investing. People make millions doing it. Heck, Warren Buffet has made billions doing it. So what are all these people doing that I am not doing? They’re investing their money. Something I don’t know how to do very well.
Instavest to the rescue! Instavest is a website that takes the guesswork out of the stock market. You easily open an account, decide how much money you want to trade with, and use that money to place in as many stocks as you want. But don’t worry – no ones going to be putting you up a creek without a paddle – Instavest will help you figure out where to invest your money by providing a list of investments some of the top investors in the United States have been making. You can see how much of their money they’ve put into a stock and decide for yourself if you want to follow along. For me, this is important. I want to see that someone is putting their money where their mouth is!
If you choose to follow someone’s stock tip, you invest alongside them and the lead investor will watch your investment while watching their own. When the lead investor decides to sell the stock, yours will automatically sell as well. This takes the guesswork (and time!) out of playing with the stock market. For the lead investors help, you can choose to gift them a portion of your profit – and let’s hope there’s always profit!
If you are an investing guru and want in on Instavest, it’s easy too! Sign up with Instavest and start a new trade. The trades are only $3.49 (super low for equity trades) and you go about your business as you normally would on any trading site. The beauty with this is, others will be able to tag along and when you’re done with the cycle, you’ll make a profit on your profit with others sending you a monetary gift for your work.
Here is a video that explains the process further:
I am really excited for this new venture and think it is innovative in the realm of investing. It makes the best investments accessible to all!
Most of all, I am proud of my husband. He is great at playing with stocks, heck he’s built a career out of it. Now he is turning something that he already does, and most importantly loves doing, into his own business. I hope you all check out Instavest!
