The Wealth Gap is an Investing Education Gap

investing Mar 18, 2021

The only thing that separates those who get to where they want to go down the road in life is those who invest and those who don’t. Period.


I continue to pound the table on my speaking tour that investing education can lift younger generations out of poverty no matter one’s economic, cultural or racial background.  It’s the absolute game changer to help people obtain a better life in the future and their kids future. 


It should bother anyone reading this post that schools do not focus on investing education as part of a mandatory education curriculum.   


Over 20 years ago you had to have $1,000 to open up an investment account such as a mutual fund with any investment services firm. That perpetuated the truth (but now the myth) that investing is only for the rich. 


Today, all you need is a penny with investing platforms like Acorns, Betterment or Robinhood.  The future is yours if you open up your first investment account.
