WHAT SHOULD INVESTORS DO IN TODAY'S MARKET?

When the market plunges, while many investors may wonder what to do in such volatile markets, Warren Buffett says the answer is simple: Try not to worry too much about it.

According to Warren Buffett, investors who buy good companies’ stocks over time will see results in 10, 20, and 30 years from now.  “If they try to buy and sell stocks continuously, they will hardly get good results.” “Money is made from investing in owning good companies over the long term.  That's what everyone should do."

Many experts including Buffett recommend buying index funds which are automatically diversified and hold every stock in an index.  For example, the S&P 500 includes major US companies like Apple and Amazon.

Like Buffett, late investor Jack Bogle also recommends a buy-and-hold strategy.  In the past, he said, buying stocks and holding is the best way to invest because “emotions will defeat you completely” if you try to sell stocks to avoid losses and return to the market later.

Bogle gave advice in 2018: “Keep going.  Don't let changes in the market, even big changes like the financial crisis, change your mind.  And never jump in and out of the market continuously.  Stay in the market to a certain extent.”

According to financial experts, for most investors, trying to react to market trends can be counterproductive.  You are better off watching the ups and downs of the market.

Sean M. Pearson, financial advisor at Ameriprise Financial, says that investors selling out when the market is down can alter their long-term investing plans.

“The long-term trend of the market is up, not down.  If you wait until the news looks a little brighter then the market has already recovered.  And if you miss the market rally, then it is very likely that you will have a hard time achieving your financial goals.”

INVESTMENT FEVER OF LUXURY TEA PU'ER IS INCREASING IN CHINA

Last December, Sotheby's Hong Kong announced the launch of its first online auction of Pu'er tea with more than 20 lots including both ancient and modern teas.  The highest selling price of 71,600 USD belonged to the 1950 Blue Label tea cake weighing about 330g.  The item is appreciated not only for its age but also because it is a rare tea batch made during tea production in China.

One of the oldest forms of tea, Pu'er is a fermented black tea traditionally produced in Yunnan province.  The soothing tea type is known for its digestive soothing effects and health benefits, and was a popular drink during the Qing Dynasty (1636-1912).  To make it easier to transport to the West, tea leaves were packed into cakes and then shipping for months.

Ancient Pu'er tea cakes, a new commodity that has risen to luxury ranking amid the Chinese environment as well as the speculative market is getting worse. It is said that Pu'er tea cakes in the 1950s increased in price more than tenfold during this period.

Of the 20,000 tea types globally with seven varieties, Pu'er tea stands out for its prevalence and methodical classification system throughout its hundreds of years of history.  Pu'er tea cakes when produced are required to be preserved meticulously in darkness and perfect humidity. Proper storage is more important than origin when it comes to aged tea.

Pu'er tea’s appraisers face challenges.  Although there are variations between tea manufacturers, tea cakes are often packaged with coding that describes information such as recipe, tea type, and grade.  However, to keep the tea package intact, for optimal value, the appraiser can only rely on the smell and the outer coating. Additionally, the appraiser will base on the ink color on the label or some other signs.

To enter the Pu'er tea market, investors are encouraged to start from 10 to 15 year old tea cakes and let them grow old instead of betting on large or expensive especially when the preservation of the tea is not simple.

New investors should start with taste preferences especially in the Chinese market. The quality of tea depends on the origin, preservation, brewer, understanding of tea and water source.

SELF-MADE MILLIONAIRE REVEALS 7 LEVELS OF FINANCIAL FREEDOM

Grant Sabatier - One of the top self-made millionaires with the biggest success story in the FIRE movement (which stands for “financial independence, early retirement” ) has amassed enough money to live comfortably on the income from his investments.

In his book "Financial Freedom" as well as in his Financial Freedom Course, an online curriculum for personal finance, Sabatier offers a roadmap to  money safety which includes 7 levels of financial freedom, from "Clarity" to "Abundant Wealth".

And according to recent research by MagnifyMoney, half of all American workers say that their income is barely enough to live on - just at level 2 "Self-sufficient".

According to Sabatier, to be able to pass the levels, you have to change your financial habits and your overall thinking about money.

1- Level 1: Clarity 

Clarity is an examination of your financial situation - how much money you have, how much you owe and what your financial goals are.

“You can't get where you want to be if you don't know where to start” says Sabatier.

2- Level 2: Self-Sufficiency

Next, you'll want to "stand on your own two feet" financially.  This means that you earn enough to cover your own expenses without any outside help such as support from your parents.

At this level, Sabatier notes that you can either live on your earnings or take out a loan to cover your living expenses.

3- Level 3: Breathing room

At Level 3, you will have some money left over after spending on living expenses which you can use to achieve financial goals such as building an emergency fund and investing for retirement.

 Self-made millionaire reveals 7 levels of financial freedom

Overpassing the level 2 means that you are free to spend as you want.  According to Sabatier, this means you don't have to have a really high salary.  In fact, 31% of Americans have jobs that pay over $100,000, according to MagnifyMoney.

“Just because you're making a lot of money doesn't mean you're actually saving it” says Sabatier.  Most Americans are living on loans.”

4- Level 4: Stability

Those who reach level 4 have paid off high-interest debt, such as credit card debt, and have an emergency fund that is sufficient to cover their living expenses for six months.  Accumulating emergency savings helps ensure your finances won't be affected by unexpected circumstances.

According to Sabatier: “At this level, you don’t have to worry if you lose your job or have to move to another city.”

Financial experts say that when calculating how much you need to save, instead of calculating your daily expenses, you should think about how your financial picture will look when you are in a difficult situation.

5- Level 5: Flexibility

At Level 5, you have saved at least two years on living expenses.  With those savings, Sabatier suggests that you can think about how long you can afford to live without doing anything, you can take a year off work if you want.

With your savings and investment accounts, as long as you can somehow get that money out when you need it, and that way you can be flexible about working, at least temporarily, without having to work.

6- Level 6: Financial Independence

According to Sabatier definitions, people who have achieved financial independence can live entirely on the income generated from their investments.

According to Sabatier, people at this level have one of two things: a large amount of money in a profitable portfolio or rental properties.  Income coming from rentals or both can help them cover living expenses.

To get here, you will have to spend a large amount of your income to invest.  This can cause you to live more frugally to keep your living expenses down.

According to Sabatier, pursuing this lifestyle requires a change in mindset to break away from traditional stereotypes about personal finance.

It is recommended to save 5%, 10%, 15% of income to retire at 65.  Thankfully, many young people are starting to understand that if they actively save and invest, they can work less and have more control over their future and destiny.

7- Level 7: Abundant Wealth

Financially independent people live on the income that comes from their portfolios by relying on the “4% rule” – a retirement rule that says investors can safely withdraw 4%.  Investing under this rule means that the invested money amount is adjusted for inflation.  This type of investment is relatively secure, allowing money to grow and not run out.

Although economists debate whether 4% is the optimal number (some more conservative observers say that the appropriate number may be closer to 3.3%), but the calculations behind show that this is the basis of establishing the "number" to achieve FIRE - how much money you need to retire and the annual income needed to live comfortably.

While at level 6 people need to monitor changes in their portfolio to make sure retirement goes on as planned, at level 7 people don't have to worry as much.  “Level 7 is wealth – having more money than you need.  You don't have to worry about money - says Sabatier.

This is also the level that Sabatier owns and is also the level he wants to take people to if they are willing to change their mindset about money.


DIRECT INVESTMENT VS PORTFOLIO INVESTMENT: WHAT SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?

Basically, there are two directions that beginning investors can think of when they want to put their money in the stock market. The first is direct investment which means you buy stocks, bonds, or ETFs yourself. The second is indirect (passive) / portfolio investment - investors buy fund certificates as a way of entrusting to experts.  The fund management company will make your money profitable or distribute it through channels such as insurance, Fintech, banking,... Direct investment vs portfolio investment: What should you choose? 

Each way the characteristics are different;  and you can fully experience both to diversify your portfolio.

If you don't know how to get started, here are some factors you can consider.

The weighing of time, knowledge, finance, risk level and investment needs will help you make the right investing decision.

1- Direct investment 

It takes a lot of time and knowledge for direct investment. Since self-investing means you do your own research and take responsibility for every trade, you definitely need to spend a lot of time learning before and after getting into the stock market.

At least in order to choose good stocks and know when to buy/sell, you should know all kinds of financial statements, and closely monitor the market's movements, securities issuer’s business activities.

 Direct investment vs portfolio investment: What should you choose?

Busy Investors who do not have time to manage the entire portfolio daily, hourly may need support from another partner s. F0 Investors completely lack financial knowledge as well.

Some products in new industries are also relatively difficult to access to individual investors.  In those cases, the transfer of money to the fund is somewhat more efficient.

2- Portfolio investment 

Investing in funds if the capital amount spent is small. 

With investment funds, you are allowed to buy fund certificates and own a part of any portfolio with dozens of stocks and bonds available;  while if you buy the same quantity directly, you may have to buy each lot and not have enough capital.

Normally, the amount of capital to start investing in portfolio is quite small.  However, this does not mean that you will save more money than with active investments.

Let the fund experts do the calculations for you, of course you have to pay them for certain fees.

Those fees are a factor that should be carefully considered, because they will affect more or less the rate of return you want.

3- Compare the risk level between direct investment and portfolio investment 

Risk is always present when investing, no matter how developing a particular company or industry.

Therefore, "don't put all your eggs in one basket" or diversification is necessary to reduce risk.

Many self-investors tend to seek big profits from a few volatile stocks.  Meanwhile, most reputable funds allocate money in a diversified manner.  When the market is contrariwise, appreciate and depreciate assets can offset each other, making the whole portfolio less affected.

Additionally, psychology plays an equally important role in investing channel selection.  For people who are psychologically unstable and easily make unclarity decisions when the market changes, an experience expert can help them feel more secure.

Advantages of direct investment: 

- High liquidity

- Investors are completely proactive with the company they choose

Disadvantages of portfolio investment: 

- Large capital may be required to create a portfolio

- High level of risk when the market is volatile

- Investors must take time to learn, analyze and limit emotions

- Transaction fees and some other fees

Advantages of portfolio investment:

- Diversify your investment portfolio

- Have the support of a fund manager

- Investors don't take much time to monitor

- Suitable for long-term investment

Disadvantages of portfolio investment:

- A lot of complicated information

- Poor liquidity depending on investment strategy

- Management fee and some other fees

One thing you should keep in mind is that passive investing does not go hand in hand with allocating your investments to funds.  In fact, you also have to know how to choose the right portfolio for you depending on your age, capital, long-term or short-term strategy,... and a basic understanding of the expert's annual investment plan.

You can choose to invest one or both methods as you like.  Importantly, they help you grow your investments in line with your future financial goals.


5 SMARTEST WAYS TO SAVE MONEY

Any success needs to go hand in hand with discipline.  And forcing yourself into the framework sometimes means that you have to trade off a lot of shopping moments, then save a part of your income to conquer bigger goals.

The secret to finding joy in the process of saving is to change your mindset and practice careful money habits.  The feeling of power and happiness in spending is real, but it soon passes once you finish paying for one item and start looking at another.

If you feel that saving is somewhat difficult, you are most likely using an inappropriate method or an unreasonable allocation ratio. 

You will need to observe and adjust for a while to find the way that works best for you.

The percentage number can also change from time to time and with different income, as long as you don't forget to force yourself to automatically deduct money.  Instead of seeing savings as a pressure, think of it as a form of "paying yourself" to make your dreams of a new home, new car, comfortable retirement,... soon come true.

A shopping need is something that can be met at the end of the year when super promotions happen so that you reward yourself for your hard work and steady accumulation.

Below are 5 smartest ways to save money you can refer to to make budget management less stressful.

5 SMARTEST WAYS TO SAVE MONEY

1- Saving automation

Every time your salary is transferred to the account, quickly cut a portion of your pay off and transfer it to an auto-renewing passbook or low-risk investment account.

2- Limit increase in costs when increasing income

If your income improves, you can prioritize increasing your savings rate and deposit the excess directly into your savings account.

Many people tend to increase costs when they have a high income. However, if you think about the future, you should try to control your wallet and limit your emotions.

When you reach a certain goal, you are free to buy your favorite brand bag or new mobile phone.  The gift will create motivation and joy for you to continue your saving journey.

3- Use one credit card

The advice that is repeated over and over in personal financial management is still to never go into credit card debt.

Using only one credit card makes it easier to manage, accumulate points and pay off your debt on time. Additionally, when your credit history is good, you will have advantages such as 0% interest installments.

4- Take advantage of sale seasons

Promotion time is when brands race to reduce prices.  This is your ideal opportunity to serve essential needs.

Be careful not to spend too much on things you like but don't need.  Many people make this mistake when hunting for sales, since then the budget is in deficit and find saving becomes a great pressure.

5- Schedule your own shopping

You can set yourself a specific limit, like buying clothes only 3 times a year.  After the specified number of times has expired, you are not allowed to buy more.

Another way that is also popular is to set a clear budget for shopping, stop when the funds are used up.  With direct purchases, many people choose to leave their credit cards at home so as not to overdo it.

Besides, always check if you have saved at least 20%/month or not.  If not, perhaps luxurious shoppings can wait until sale seasons.


SHOULD YOUNG INVESTORS USE LEVERAGE?

Financial leverage in investment simply understood as borrowing money from others to make profitable investments.  This form is quite popular in the field of real estate investment, when investors need a large amount of capital to participate in this market.

Not only in investment, but in finance in general, financial leverage is a very effective tool to take advantage of loan capital. Should young investors use leverage?

Debt instruments or financial leverage help us to solve the shortfall of capital.  And of course, investors will bear a loan interest when paying.

SHOULD YOUNG INVESTORS USE LEVERAGE?

1- Should young investors use leverage?

Financial leverage is the use of other people's money or borrowed money to invest.  And when using this money, you also have to pay a loan interest.  If you do not calculate carefully, you will lose the borrowed money.

Should young investors use leverage?Should young investors use leverage? / ph: pexels 

In the opposite case, if you have mastered the use of financial leverage and are also familiar with the market and individual investment products, you can use it to invest.  But it must also be noted, leverage is a "double-edged sword", so you need to think carefully about your debt repayment ability and risk appetite before making a decision.

2- How to use financial leverage to invest properly?

There are 4 basic steps of personal finance: earn - spend - save - invest.  You need to solve the first 2 steps: how to earn and how to spend to get a steady monthly accumulation.  Or you can deduct a percentage from your earnings to have a small prime capital for investment.

At this small investment stage, you should keep the mentality of both investing and learning, losses can be considered as tuition fees.

Once you have an investment mindset and habit, you have come to the last step, which is also the most important step in personal finance and investing. At this point you will have passive income.

No investor is without debt or financial leverage.  In the early stages, young people who do not have much experience in investing or using financial leverage can use low leverage, the ratio of equity is higher than debt.

You should consider to invest on low-risk (meaning less profit) and less volatile channels, or channels with high liquidity, easy trading with small initial investment.

But also be very careful because when using debt, the psychology of "indebtedness" will also more or less affect psychology when making investment decisions.

Investing with your own money, you will be more confident and not have a lot of pressure to repay, plus the pressure of creating business profitable like when you borrow money to do business.  When borrowing money, investor psychology is often unstable, does not invest strongly and misses many good investment opportunities.

Besides, you need to build a clear repayment plan for both interest and principal.  In investing, you should not think about the short term, such as speculating, but you should have an investment plan and allocate it to investment channels that you understand well.

HOW TO INVEST IN METAVERSE?

Metaverse real estate and stocks are just some of the ways that tech enthusiasts can invest in the current digital world. Here are How to invest in Metaverse.

HOW TO INVEST IN METAVERSE?

1- How to invest in Metaverse with stock?

The least volatile option for retail investors looking to invest in metaverse is to invest in publicly traded companies that have a business model or profitability tied to the metaverse.  The list might includes: 

Boeing (NYSE: BA)

Boeing is using the metaverse to expand and improve manufacturing capabilities.  Boeing is said to plan to create an exclusive digital environment where its human employees, computers and robots can communicate and collaborate seamlessly all over the world.

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) 

Microsoft is finding its super needed niche in the professional world.  The company plans to release Mesh for Microsoft Teams in 2022. The add-on for the popular video conferencing platform will allow individuals to create personalized avatars and collaborate in three-dimensional 3D environments beyond  across geographical boundaries.  A key feature of Microsoft Mesh will be Holoportation, a tool that allows users to access the previously mentioned digital environment using a VR headset.  Users appear as a digital representation of themselves with the ability to interact with team members as if they were in person.

2- How to invest in Metaverse with Metaverse real estate?

While the metaverse is still in its early stage, platforms like Sandbox and Decentraland have already begun selling Metaverse real estate in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), digital tokens on the blockchain network that can  represents a variety of unique items.  When an individual purchases a super large piece of Metaverse real estate, the blockchain network that powers the metaverse platform verifies the sale and transfers ownership.

How to invest in Metaverse?How to invest in Metaverse? / ph: Decentraland

Once the Metaverse real estate is purchased, the owner of the NFT mega-property can rent, sell or build on his Metaverse real estate.  Japanese video game maker Atari recently purchased 20 plots of Metaverse real estate in Decentraland and created its own crypto casino.  Using its own native ERC20-based Atari token, gamblers can bet and receive their winnings in tax-free crypto.  Atari has also announced plans to launch its own virtual hotel complex by 2022.

3- How to buy Metaverse real estate and other digital items?

Several mega-platforms have created marketplaces where users can buy and sell Metaverse real estate and other collectibles as NFTs.  Here's how to do it.

- The user who wants to buy super Metaverse real estate needs to determine on which platform he wants to buy Metaverse real estate.  Popular options are Decentraland and Sandbox. Do your own research before buying any Metaverse real estate.

- Users need to create a digital crypto wallet, a type of computer software that connects to the blockchain network and stores the cryptocurrency and is compatible with the associated blockchain that powers the metaverse platform.

From there, the buyer needs to access the chosen metaverse platform marketplace and connect his digital wallet to it.  Marketplaces can often be found on metaverse platform websites.

At this stage, buying Metaverse real estate looks a lot like buying real estate in the physical world.  The buyer needs to consider the price, location and future value of the Metaverse real estate he is considering buying.

Once the buyer has identified a Metaverse real estate that he wants, he needs to acquire the tokens or coins to buy it and store them on his digital wallet.  The type of token or coin that will be needed to make a transaction varies by metaverse platform.  For example, to buy Metaverse real estate in Decentraland, users will need to purchase MANA tokens.  If he wants to buy Metaverse real estate in The Sandbox, he will need to obtain a SAND card.

If the buyer has connected his digital wallet to the metastasis market and financed it, all he needs to do is place a bid on the Metaverse real estate or buy the Metaverse real estate outright.  The cost of Metaverse real estate will be removed from the digital wallet and the NFT representing the Metaverse real estate will be transferred to the user's wallet.

The same process applies to the purchase of other super large NFT items such as avatar clothing and accessories.

4- How to invest in Metaverse with Cryptocurrency?

Metaverse projects on the blockchain network are powered by fungible tokens - tokens that are divisible and exchangeable.  These tokens are used to purchase digital assets such as Metaverse real estate or costumes for avatars.  They can also be traded for other cryptocurrencies or fiat.  Some mega cryptocurrencies also allow their holders to vote on decisions in a metastasis platform like where money should be invested or what new features to release first.

The average price of luxury bags has changed this year, in the second quarter it was recorded a 4% increase compared to the same period last year, and is predicted to continue to increase over the next 10 years. Market watchers think that this will change consumer behavior.

According to the luxury goods experts, there are a few common factors that affect the price of collectibles, whether they are vintage cars, luxury watches or luxury handbags, are firstly the exclusivity and secondly the product state. However, “cultural capital” is also extremely important.  Before the pandemic, there were also waves of influences as pop culture;  K-pop in particular has certainly played an important part in driving the demand and resale prices of some models among K-pop artists and celebrities.

The remaining influencing factor is social networking platforms like TikTok, a hugely popular platform during the peak of pandemic, is definitely one of the factors driving demand for some styles.

Collectible handbags can start at affordable prices.  But in the high-end market, price isn't the only barrier to starting a collection.

One option for those unable to buy in person is to look in the resale market.  Even though the price has been increased, those who research well can still make a profit. Collectors say the key is to choose classic designs.

The resale price is also affected by the condition of the bag.  Factors include intact condition, original packaging and even original receipt.

One final factor to consider is that not all designer handbags will increase in price.  Only some handbags have the potential to increase in price, however these bags are not always easy to buy.

2 LATEST INVESTMENT TRENDS

The reason the rich don't deposit money in banks or invest in homes: These two methods are so outdated! Below are 2 latest investment trends.

According to experts, in the next 10 years, houses and cash will depreciate, instead of the "throne" of these two factors.

 Currently, most people have two ways to accumulate wealth.  The first is to keep it in the bank, mainly in cash;  the second is to choose to buy a house and invest, so that the family\'s assets are preserved, or even profitable... For this type of method, the second method is definitely the most chosen, which is to buy house and invest to preserve value, then have a small amount of cash available to prepare for emergencies.


 

2 latest investment trends

2 latest investment trends / ph: pexels


Currently, this approach is much more outdated than it used to be.

Storing cash is like "throwing money out the window"
First of all, cash is now inevitable the reality of less and less value.

Why does cash depreciate?  The explanation for this question can be encapsulated in one sentence: "When the money supply is too much, money will increasingly depreciate".  Many people may not understand why this is so.  For a better understanding, a specific case can be taken as follows.  For example, the total amount is only $1,000 while there are 1,000 items left, the price of these 1,000 items is $1 each.  But if the total amount is now $2,000 and the goods are still 1,000, when you want to buy goods, you have to pay $2.

Compared with the past, this fact can be clearly seen.  We make more money, but at the same time, the prices also go up, so even with a lot of money, life is not necessarily better.

 It can be said that for cash, devaluation is a very normal thing.  So keeping all the cash on hand is an unwise choice, keeping cash means waiting for your assets to slowly depreciate.

As for investing by buying a house, it was certainly a very good direction in the past, but now, the real estate market has had great fluctuations.  Because in the past housing prices increased very quickly, after investing and buying a house, after two years of waiting for the price to increase, you can make a profit from it.

 But right now, house prices are already very high, which can be seen from the house price-to-income ratio.  The so-called house price-to-income ratio is the ratio of a family\'s total housing price to that household\'s disposable income.  Currently, especially in urban areas, apartments are very expensive, not to mention to house.  According to calculations, many families even take more than 20 years to have enough money to buy a house, provided that no further expenditures are made.

 Therefore, currently, investing in a house is not advisable, the risk of investing in buying a house is much greater than before, and the profit earned is also reduced compared to before.  A bank president also frankly said: "House and cash will depreciate in 10 years, and you will feel safe holding two things in your hand." And here they are.

 Two things you should hold firmly in hand.

1. Advanced technology

In today\'s trend, in order not to be left behind, we must keep up with the development of technology.  This is the first choice, because technology can be applied in all aspects of life.  Many people have different levels of education, but that shouldn\'t affect their access to new things.

 Today there are many ways to make money with technology.  If you are proficient in a certain field, you can completely enjoy life without working anytime, anywhere, at least without having to worry about your job and precarious income as before.

2. Wise financial thinking

 Currently, financial management is not only used to buy a house.  In society, there are many methods of financial management, but most people only know about buying a house for investing.  Because in the past, investing in buying a house was relatively simple, the profit rate was very high.  But for now, if you want to invest, you can try with stocks, funds, and other investment methods.

 But it is not necessary to invest all the money in a specific area, you can reasonably divide how much money you keep in your hand, how much money you invest in financial management... In this way, when you  need money urgently, you may have enough cash on hand.  Many people will say this type of financial management option is risky, but buying a home is also risky.  When choosing an investment, it is best to choose safely and not get too caught up in seeking short-term profits, otherwise it will be very easy to lose money.


INVESTMENT CONSULTING: THE LONGER THE INVESTMENT PERIOD, THE GREATER THE PROFIT ACHIEVE
 

According to financial experts, starting learning how to investing and saving as soon as possible. The longer the investment period, the greater the profit achieve.

Saving money to invest also means you have to tighten your spending and lose some money that can be used now.  Additionally, the risk of loss is also an issue that many people are afraid of.

However, if you want to work towards long-term financial stability and freedom, the best way is to start a money management and investment plan now.  Here are some reasons why you should be financially conscious as soon as possible.

1- Investing awareness helps you create positive financial habits

How you spend your money in the early years of generating income is very important, as they will become hard-to-break habits over time and affect your lifestyle throughout your life.


The longer the investment period, the greater the profit achieveThe longer the investment period, the greater the profit achieve / ph: pexels 

Without a specific goal and plan to save money, you will easily form the habit of uncontrolled spending.  Nowadays, it is not difficult to find young people who are willing to spend all their monthly salary on short-term pleasures such as shopping, travelling, dining, beauty, etc. Even many people regularly take out credit loans to be able to afford such pleasures.  On the contrary, if you have now identified the importance of investing, you will learn to control yourself against momentary material desires, be motivated to pursue a more frugal lifestyle and practice patience and prudence in money matters.

2- Starting early helps you accumulate a lot of experience

Financial investing is not an area you can master just by intelligence and book knowledge.  The accumulated experience, both success and failure, is the most valuable asset of any investor.

If you wait until the age of 30 to start thinking about investing for the future, then you are still just a blank sheet of paper.  But if you start soon, by the time you\'re 30 you\'ll be a connoisseur investor with years of experience.  You will be able to assess what are good investment opportunities, and how to avoid potential risks.

3- You are better able to take risks when you are younger

Any investment opportunity comes with a certain degree of risk, and a person\'s age is closely related to financial risk tolerance.  Unlike the elders, the younger generation has more time and opportunity to correct them if they make a mistake.

No investment is too small, so don\'t hesitate to start even if your income is not high.  In fact, starting with a small amount of capital is a wise choice, because even in the event of a loss, the risk you have to bear is not too great.

4- The magical power of "Compound Interest"

Albert Einstein once said: "Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. Those who understand it will get rich from it, those who don\'t will pay for it."

Financial investment is like rolling a snowball, the longer the investment period, the faster the profit you get from it will increase.  So get started as soon as possible.

5- You can retire earlier and enjoy life

Legendary investor Warren Buffett famously said : “If you don\'t find a way to make money while you sleep, you\'ll have to work until you die."  A life of struggling to make a living even in old age must be something no one wants, which is why it is important to learn how to use money wisely from a young age.

The normal retirement age of a person in society is 55-60 years old, however, if you have financial and investment management consciousness early, you can completely achieve a solid enough financial foundation to retire early and spend time doing what you love.

People rarely reach the top of anything without the help of others.  You need solid advice - and you'll need to pay for it.  Don't expect others to offer their expertise for free.

6- Specific goals 

Setting specific goals and clear destinations will make it easier for you to chart a good path so you don't stumble along the way.

7- Do what you love, and love what you do

Whatever you love to do, it should be a combination of something you're good at and something you're willing to work hard for.  Passion is a must because you cannot expect immediate results.  You need that motivation to work hard every day and be consistent.  Success - and money - comes later.

8- Diversify income sources 

You should diversify your sources of income. Because nothing is guaranteed to last forever.  It's always safer to buy properties, create or build assets, and earn passive income through other sources 

9- Time is more valuable than money

Time is a priceless asset.  As long as there's time, it's never too late to set yourself money goals and achieve them.  So, manage your time effectively.

10- Learn carefully to be confident with your investment decision

No one can be 100% sure of their investments.  However, invest only when you know calculated risks.  Firstly develop enough your emergency funds.  Take the time to research the market, gain knowledge from experts, and then you will feel more confident about your investments.

11- Abundance mindset

In fact, you can create any amount of wealth.  Whatever value you aim for is doable.  So get rid of the scarcity mindset, don't think for a moment that self-produced wealth is finite.  If you do, you are destroying yourself immediately with a predefined limitation. Scarcity is a mistake in thinking.

In addition, legal issues are always an indispensable factor in any real estate transaction.  Check to see if the property is in dispute or in an area with upcoming projects.  You certainly don't want to get entangled in legal proceedings in the future.

Finally, check for environmental risks, such as whether the property is in a disaster-prone area, and in the event that it happens, how to handle insurance.

Since buying and selling real estate involves large value transactions, any buyer should be careful.  Sometimes careless can cause serious consequences.  The more knowledge related to real estate, the greater the opportunity to help buyers reduce risk.
