Excerpt From the Rask Finance Investing Basics Course:
“One of the most important lessons I’ve learned from all of my years investing is this: if you don’t understand it, don’t buy into it. Shares, property, Bitcoin or gold, it doesn’t matter. If you don’t understand the potential benefits and risks and how an investment will make you money, don’t own it.”
