Hey there! Welcome, and thanks for checking out the Everyday Investing blog. My name is Erik Machuca, and I am the founder of Everyday Investing.
As an everyday investor just like you, I am dedicated to helping connect the everyday investor with the right financial tools and technology so you can get started saving and investing.
Whether you’re new to investing or are simply researching new financial platforms, I appreciate you being a part of the Everyday Investing community.
And much like many of my fellow everyday investors, when I first began my investing journey, I did not have a lot of money to invest or even know where to begin.
Many of the traditional investment brokerages out there were not very user-friendly and required hundreds or even thousands of dollars just to get started investing with them.
So I researched, tested, and sought out more modern investing platforms that were both innovative and easier to use for the everyday investor, like myself.
After years of using several core investing platforms, and continually testing out new ones, I have learned a lot about the importance of saving and investing for building wealth over the long term.
I am not a stock trading “guru,” and you won't find any "hot stock" picks or “get-rich-quick” schemes here. While it's not flashy, I've learned that real wealth is built over the long term through smart money habits, consistency, and patience.
In fact, the greatest contributors to building wealth are time and investing consistently. Together they allow your money to grow with compound interest. If there is one thing you learn today, let it be compound interest.
Essentially, compound interest means that not only does your initial investment earn interest, but you also earn interest on the interest. This powerful snowball effect is the key to creating true wealth over time.
Now compound interest is no big secret, but it is only the first half of the puzzle. The second half is actually choosing the right financial platforms, apps, tools, and resources that will help you get there.
Unfortunately, there is not a single investing platform that is a perfect "one-size-fits-all" solution. Each platform has specific advantages and each one is designed differently. I want to help you find and learn how to use the right tools that will help you reach your financial goals.
That's why I created this blog and my Everyday Investing YouTube channel. They are meant to be a resource to help guide new investors on getting started with safe, affordable, and easy to use investing platforms.
So if you're ready to start taking control of your financial life and would like to learn about the best platforms for investing, saving, and personal finance, feel free to check out my app reviews down below.
