why investing at a young age is beneficial 

By: P.B.J.

Beneficial… that’s the word I would say best describes what investing at a young age can be for you. This can happen in many different ways, whether financially, learning to organize yourself for the future, patience, and multiple other attributes. In this blogging series, we will tell you why you should invest at a young age and how to use your money to its fullest potential in the world of finance.  I know, I know I haven’t even convinced you why you should invest your money, and I’m already trying to tell you how to use it. From now on, I promise I’ll only tell you why investing is beneficial.   

Learning Patience

Learning patience at a young age will help you throughout your entire life. I mean, literally, you will need this skill forever. Although you or I might not like it,  patience is a necessary skill to have when investing. Investing your hard-earned money is already tricky. There is a chance of losing it. Invested money can’t actually be relied on because you might lose it. So never invest money that you can’t afford to lose. It’s also hard because choosing what to invest in is brutal. But then, putting it into a business where you have no control over the money, like in the stock market, you must realize there is a risk. Knowing you could lose it is excruciating. Hopefully, by the time you finish this series of blogs, you will be able to research what you’re investing in and be confident in your investment. This helped me a ton when I first started knowing what I was investing in and if I knew it was worth the risk. It gave me the patience to sit by and let my portfolio grow on its own.

Creating profits

We are finally here for what you are really reading this blog for — making money. Whether you are young or old, you need money. Everyone does, whether you need to buy your first car or put down another payment on your house; money is a necessity throughout life. So why let your money just sit around? Put it to good use; let it work for you. 

The average gain on the stock market yearly is ten percent!  This is no guarantee that you will make money; investing is risky, but now is the time to do it. When you are young, you have no bills to pay weekly and more time to research what you’re investing in. Let your money work for you.


To make profits in investing, you need to know what you are investing in and how much to invest. To know all these things, you need to research them. This is probably the most essential thing to do before investing your money. 

Research is a very useful life skill. People who want to succeed at something invest time into it. By learning what you can get out of it, you will understand how to best earn back your money, plus more. You never know how much earning potential you have until you try. Starting your journey into investing will help you learn the easiest and most efficient way for you to research something.  

Final Thoughts

By now, I’ve convinced you why you should start investing at a young age. If you are still on the ropes, all I ask is for you to consider the pros and cons of investing and explore your options.  I really hope that you are willing to put in the time and effort. Succeeding at making money and finding financial freedom will provide you with opportunities bigger than you could ever dream of.
