Learn 2 Invest Kid Book - Coming Soon
Updated: Nov 20
We wrote Learn 2 Invest Kid with the intention of helping people become hopeful about their financial future. The idea for the book stemmed from our own need to raise money for Young Guns Weightlifting and Boxing Club, a free award winning youth club created in 2019. When the pandemic arrived the non-profit sector was hit especially hard. Funding from businesses and government was reduced or halted, fundraising galas were banned and traditional fundraising activities such as selling our protein donuts directly to the public were not allowed. Our club had trouble obtaining funds so we decided to invest in dividend-paying stocks, freeing ourselves from having to apply for government grants and other funding. It worked.
The goal of this book is to help readers learn about investing in blue chip dividend paying stocks. There are two ways to make money off stocks: Capital Appreciation and Dividends. Did you know that some companies, such as Canadian banks, have consistently paid their dividends for over 150 years? As dividends increase the share price typicially follows. We try to make this process easy to understand.
Within the pages of this book, investment concepts are broken down and analyzed; successes and failures are discussed; and research and patience are emphasized. Many examples are used to help prepare the reader for the bumpy road of investing. With simple language and using superheroes as examples, we have found a unique way of presenting complex investment ideas that make it easy for the reader to understand. Learn 2 Invest Kid will help readers gain confidence and show that investing in stocks is viable way of creating personal wealth.
Unfortunately, this is not taught in schools.
Our book will be available for sale in January 2024.
