STOP saving and START investing! | The Freelancer Talk #11

STOP saving and START investing! | The Freelancer Talk #11

We’re being taught to save our money but really we shouldn’t be saving anymore. We should be investing it!

Over the past couple of months I’ve been researching and educating myself on investing and this week I finally felt ready. With the Covid-19 pandemic luring over the stock markets I decided to play it safe and give myself some kind of trial amount. Just to understand what the stock exchange does to my money and how different types of companies and shares work.

But enough about my first investment. I want to talk about why is started to invest!

There was a reason why I choose to invest: saving isn’t an option anymore. Nowadays saving is considered to be a way of slowly becoming poor. Why? You’ll have to listen to the podcast!

I’ve mentioned this before already a couple of times. Us freelancers are in charge of our own financial system and therefore also our pension. I’ve been raised with a saving mentality, hell everybody from the Netherlands has been raised like that, but saving your pension as a freelancer is a bad idea! Saving, in general, is a bad idea and I think we should all been made aware of that. But most of us are not.

That’s why in this week’s podcast I’m urging you to start educating yourself on investing and change your ideas on saving.
