Okay, back to the story...
There’s not many things that excite me more (with the exception of In-N-Out Burgers 🍔) than seeing a young investor get started for the first time.
The fact that this investor was the ripe age of 16 makes it that much more exciting.
Now you might also be thinking, “I'm not 16 years old, Jeff. I'm about 10 years from retirement.” I feel you.
Instead of giving up, there's so much you can do to better your finances.
I encourage you to invest something – what you reasonably can – toward a better future. Who knows, maybe later today you'll meet your future self thanking you for being smart and investing more for the future.
Here’s what you’ll learn in this new video:
▶︎ What the motivation of a 16 year old can teach us about making money.
▶︎ How I use a database of almost 30,000 different mutual funds that exist to show how easy it is to get started investing by buying mutual funds.
▶︎ How compound interest makes the magic of investing really happen.
▶︎ How the changes in the stock market really don’t impact whether you should or shouldn’t invest.

My most favorite inspiration T-shirt line, Compete Every Day:
The title is false : your showcasing a potential return not actually making the kid money in this timeline i.e taking the 500$ and doing it within a year or 6months and then you turn against the audience -then you hate on poser whiny rich millennials as a stereotype.
Jeff the title your video is very deceptive and I don’t know if you gave it some thought before posting or was it deliberate? Whichever way it sucks, as I (and I’m sure I speak for many others) was looking for something special.
This is a great concept and feel like I need to invest or start some small business not because im broke but because of the dream of not working for someone. The issue with this for me is im not 16 years old and don't have 45 years to wait for a investment to grow. Good information
Hey, i have a business idea. im looking for 13/17 years old guys
that want to make money with No money. ( Guys Only )
I want to make an empire helping and making money all togheter.
it doesnt matter if you are 14 years old, you just need the right mindset
it doesnt matter if you have 0 money you just need to be able to learn.
Man.... BS yes you can flip that kind of money BUT the time frame and the kids age makes no f××king sense nothing adds up people put more than that in retirement investments cant get that close Idk what he talking about
That kind of growth is only in penny stocks. And even then this is lucky. This video is complete BS!
Though he did illustrate a good point. If your stocks go down, dont sell, wait longer and eventually they should return on the bull market.
Better yet, wait for the market to hit the lowest point (keep your pre-existing stocks) and buy even more stocks. Then when they return to the high you'll have very profitable stocks
@Richard. That kind of growth is slightly above average but not unrealistic. Any total US stock market or S&P 500 tracking index fund over the 10 year is at 11-12% and over the life of the fund around 7-9%. And these are passively managed low fee funds you can get into fairly easily and I'm sure there are actively managed funds out there that beat the index funds. Not to mention you can have these funds in a Traditional/Roth/401k tax advantage account where you will make even more money saving on taxes.
+Wealth Hacker - Jeff Rose Its not contradiction, its called fair evaluation. You made a good point but explained it poorly without mentioning many factors and implications involved.
Also, if you make many points or observations and only one of them is good then the video really isnt good.
Where is a good place to buy etfs? I've been looking at vanguard, but haven't been able to find if there's a minimum to start investing with them or if I need to contribute a monthly amount or if there are any fees associated with just having money in an account. I have found a place for cds, but I know etfs will be a good thing to have as well.
Does it have to be a mutual fund? Can it be an index fund or an ETF? Mutual funds have all these fee's. If its a 7% yearly return mutual fund you could be left with 4% cause of every % fee taken out. What if I started with $500 and focused on saving and investing $50 a day into it? Or $100? Why stop at $1M and be in a position to earn $10M?
Thanks once again for all ur great content. My Son will be 3years in 2months, and I hv been thinking of open account for him. Where can I set up this account u about? Is through bank or financial advisor?
+Wealth Hacker - Jeff Rose The problem is the date, 1970 was a hot spot for the stocks because so many educated people from Asia were moving which caused more companies to move, playing with the stocks. Appreciate the reply though. I am not saying your wrong that you can grow your money efficiently, but in my opinion that is a bit unrealistic.
Paper trade doesn't work. How can you teach somebody to ride a bicycle sitting in a classroom? If you want to learn something do it, study and do it with the money you can afford to lose, learn from the mistake and do it again,i met vosk coin and with his mining device i make mind blowing profits,he is the best bitcoin miner for now reach him through Email:[email protected] com
To avoid making losses while mining, you need to get full understanding and knowledge it is not something you just gamble ,vosk coin strategy is very effective, Consistent and constructive. I am getting the best from it..Thanks
Hey everyone. Question: What is the main roadblock which a 9 to 5 leaver runs into.. when trying to start a side hustle business which would eventually help him to get rid of that dead end job? Can it be, the lack of money, lack of skills, lack of right proven systems, mentors..what could it be?
+Wealth Hacker - Jeff Rose During this summer I studied day trading, for me this seems fitting. I'm not a person that wants to invest money and expect to make hundred of thousands of dollars over a period of at least 40 years.
Loved this video but 😢 I’m tuning 40 next yr I’m trying to turn my financials around any help for me I’ve started acorns but I like what you’ve shown in this video I’m in Australia so I don’t know where to start with investing but would love to start before it’s too late if it isn’t already 😳🤣🤦🏼♀️
a) cannot open an investment account at age 16
b )tracking an initial investment of $500 in 1970 is not the same as $500 in 2017 for multiple reasons:
-Equity prices were dirt cheap for a long stretch of time from the Great Depression until the late 70s since many people were afraid of the market.
Also consider the beginning of the 70s were marked by a bear market and you are measuring the bottoming out of the stock market in the 70s and comparing it with the peak of a bull market.
At the end of the day, you can't time the market, and preceding returns may not reflect future outcomes. You cannot predict when a bull and bear market will happen and for how long it occured. This should just be treated as hypothetical WHAT IF/ What happened if you would have invested $500 at age - 31 years old.
I get that you want to explain the power of compounding interest, but as a financial advisor you can't propose future returns for a client with past data. Returns on mutual funds fluctuate each year, and It's best to use something like fixed rates or the overall S&P 500 returns for a better analysis.
+Wealth Hacker - Jeff Rose technally I didn't considering how you worded everything from begging to end. Your talking about the part in 9:40ish I believe in what you think I missed. Which doesn't excuse the first bit of the video.
Great video! You have a new fan in me, I will try to catch up and see what I can do at 25 with my money. Just one question, is there any resource online for me to use where I could check the performance of several mutual funds?
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
Sample Split Payroll Report.
We will need a complete employee job description before we add the classification to the policy. Please do not report payroll in the new classification until it has been reviewed and endorsed to your policy.
Job Duties Questionnaire.
We recommend you keep a copy of your previous payroll reports and payroll records for at least seven years, as you would your tax records.
Submitting Payroll Reports.
There are three different ways to submit your payroll reports.
