Wear your "financial seat belt” by owning at least 10 stocks
Start now to benefit from future decades of compound interest

Don’t wait, start investing now, no one can do it for you
Take pleasure in spending less than you make
Keep fees and taxes low with a passively managed index fund
Achieve diversification through a passively managed index fund that owns shares in all stocks in your nation or across the world
Own stocks in a ratio of 110 minus your age, and the rest should be in bonds
