Mrs. Tamilla Simpson
In order to secure a stable financial future in today’s uncertain economy, it is vital for a young adult to have a clear understanding of the fundamental principals of the stock market. Many young adults (and not-so-young adults) lack this understanding and even confuse stock trading with investing. In order to gain the best advantage in planning one’s financial future, I believe the concepts and terminologies of investing must be demystified into simple, understandable language. It is only through understanding the fundamentals of investing that a person can leverage these tools to their fullest potential.
My goal is to set forth the concepts of investing as a life skill that, if done properly and with vigilance, will equip the student to lay a solid financial foundation to last well into his/her senior years.
