Common Sense Investing
Learn simple, time-proven investing wisdom
Successful investing is not complicated. Learn how-to achieve superior returns with little effort.
Ten simple rules will help you finance your dreams. These principles are also endearingly called the Boglehead Investment Philosophy by the tens of thousands of us that admire John C. Bogle, lifelong champion of ordinary investors.
These few investment principles are easy to understand. They are proven both by history and by Nobel prize-winning financial economics research. Learn to achieve superior results with only a small amount of effort.
This FREE introductory course is a dozen 5-minute video lectures with printable handouts. It will give you a good overview and get you ed. Your confidence will grow solid as you become familiar with the concepts discussed here, and eventually you will regard this as Common Sense Investing.
Many of you are curious and questions are inevitable. Additional courses are here that go a little deeper and provide more structured learning with an instructor monitoring your progress and answering questions, along with a like-minded supportive community that is on the same path. Your financial education needs to be a lifetime commitment, because achieving your dreams is so important.
My mission is to help you learn, understand, and apply the essential investing concepts that 99% of us should use—but are rarely taught in our high-schools, colleges, or around our kitchen tables. FinancingLife.org is a not-for-profit financial literacy project and the small course fees help pay our direct costs.
