Why Shouldn’t We Be Scared of Investments? (Part 1)

Perhaps a lot of professionals, OFWs, and businessmen, with their own families or not, have
considered putting some of their hard-earned money into a good investment in the hopes of
getting good returns. They thought about it, but years passed and they have not taken steps to
pursue it. They haven’t decided yet. They couldn’t. Why? Because they are scared – scared that they may not get what was advertised, or worse, lose their money.

You’ve been working hard all your life, and it’s high time to put those savings into something that will appreciate in value. You just don’t know where to place them.

If investing scares you, you can take heart in the fact that you are not alone.

I have been in the same place as you are, probably 9 years ago. That was before I met my
husband who is older and more mature than me, having more experience. Basically, he is the
reason I got educated with property investments, passive income, property appreciation, and such
I remember my 27-year-old boyfriend’s words, “Investing your money today will increase its value in the future. Financial assets offer returns on money over the long-run. Real estate
investing is the best way to grow your money.” (Of course, that wasn’t verbatim but it was more or less something like that. :D)

During those times, I just nodded my head to agree because the truth is, I didn’t even understand the full scale of what he was talking about! 😀

It’s funny, right? How we’re actually scared about something we don’t fully understand or know about. We can’t blame people for being intimidated about investments and why we normally think badly or negatively about it. They did hear some horror stories of people running away with their money.

But hey! It’s 2021!

If you’re really interested in investing your money, you can always conduct your own research that will help you decide which investment best fits you. There are different kinds of investment options. The popular ones are stocks, Mutual Funds, Health Insurance Policy, and Real Estate Investing like condotels or hotel investment. Everything you need to know will be on the internet. One big tip when considering to invest your money is to scrutinize the company very well.

The reason for investments may vary.

Ours, obviously, is for a better future for our kids.

But they need to be investments with monthly cash flow. Investing is different from simply saving money, like storing them in a wallet in your closet! Keeping money hidden is simply dead money that has no value. A lot of people know that investing is important, but are either too scared, too intimidated, or too uncertain to get started. In fact, the biggest investment mistake you can make is NOT getting started. The simple act of saving money is the most powerful tool you have at your disposal.

So, if by reading this blog you are now reconsidering your investment plans and finally planning to push through with it, I am sharing with you this simple and worry-free income generating property investment that my husband and I have been reviewing together.
