Investing takes time, so why are the people with the most time not investing? That needs to change. This is the issue Early Bird is here to solve.
This book contains interviews with a large range of seasoned investors that consists of David Gardner, LouAnn Lofton, Alyce Lomax, Todd Wenning, David Kretzmann, Bill Mann, and Ginny Adams (known as Aunt Ginny).
Investing comes with misconceptions and fears, which results in a lack of enthusiasm from teenagers. The stock market can seem like a scary, almost casino like place, but it’s far from that. With knowledge and research, most investors can get some baggers!
Early Bird teaches the reader what goes into a good company, if they’re ethical, what numbers to look for, how to open an account, which company has the competitive advantage, and more. This book gives readers easy to follow directions so they can do it on their own, without influencing any particular company. Early Bird inspires us with innovators and leaders in the industry from a young person’s perspective.
