Despite the fact that people are one of the ways to grow their wealth, there is still a huge segment of the population that does not take advantage of the financial security that the stock market provides.
Many people are afraid they might lose their hard-earned money. They may feel like they don’t have enough knowledge or the necessary skills to succeed, and let’s face it – the stock market is huge.
The problem is that due to inflation, money is not very active invested gradually loses cost. When faced with the dismal interest rates that are returning savings and CD accounts, the picture becomes clear. The historic 7.5% average return that the stock market has given investors is the best thing to make your money work for you.
After all, as the common saying goes, “If you work hard and save even just a little a month, in a year you will be surprised at how little your money has grown.”

One more quick thing …
Before I leave, I would like to leave you this excerpt from the introduction to Quick Start Guide titled “The Risks not investment “.
Many potential investors stay away from the stock market because they don’t want to risk their hard-earned money. Risk is a very important factor that investors should take very seriously. But risk alone is not a good reason to hide your cash under the mattress when it might work for you in the marketplace.
Snow then goes on to list inflation and missed growth opportunity – two key ways in which the inability to secure your financial future through market participation can actually limit your future financial options.
