Investing is a scary word for people and I totally get it. For the longest time, I held off on — or didn’t even think of — learning how to invest. I brushed it off as something that only worked for wealthy people who didn’t flunk out of their freshman year algebra class. However, life brought me to a point where I no longer wanted to fall victim to what I didn’t know, and I forced myself to learn how to invest. Thankfully, I had already been applying minimalism to my life and was shocked to see how these two things go hand in hand.
