  1. Iโ€™m investing well over $100 a month at 15 years old. Youโ€™ve really inspired me to get started. Your video about turning $500 into $500,000 really inspired me!

  2. Awesome. Thanks Jeff! I'm 17 and due to legal reasons I have to finish school and graduate the upcoming 2019 school year. I'm told I have to do this to get a High School Diploma to get any job at all.

    (They want me to, while doing school, get a college education. They don't think that me actually offering an internship to a company would land me a job. They think I need a degree, which I call a piece of paper, just to do what I want: work on computer programming.)

    Point is that I can't drop out and I feel like so much time is being wasted on the pointless things of school. (Besides, they don't teach you the fundementals of money, taxes, and the whole 9 yards.)

    But even so, I read up and watch the latest content to stay updated to make good choices down the road.

    Thank you Jeff!

  3. dude, whats going on in the back round? there is a weird beeping like a construction crew working or something.

  4. I was lucky enough to start investing right at 18. Great advice on investing early especially on starting a business!

  5. Thanks Jeff. I have a 17 year that I want to encourage. I like the idea of a custodial investment platform. Have you done videos on this subject matter?

  6. Iโ€™m 18 right now and turned 800 too 1100 from March to July , with stocks thatโ€™s more than 10 percent. Iโ€™m serious with trading. Soon going to trade options, HOW and WHErE do I find the information I need for mutual funds and to make decisions on them. If anyone knows a good blog post let me know

  7. I wish I had been asking these questions at 17. My kids definitely will, if the world hasnโ€™t turned into a smoking hellscape by then.

  10. The thumbnail makes you look like Howie from the Backstreet Boys. Love the information by the way will definitely have my nephew sit down and watch this..

  11. Im 12 and im glad i have started early. I've put a little bit over 500โ‚ฌ into different funds this year. But it is sad that i cant legally invest straight into stocks until im 15 in my country. I've watched almost every video you have posted this year and i have read a lot of books about investing and business and few biographies of successful people. Hope my effort will pay off when im older.

  12. Hi Jeff Iโ€™m 14 I wonโ€™t to do long term investment would a business like amazon fba or shopify be good for long term or is stocks better? And what books would you recommend for for investment and finance?

  14. To be honest i am by myself 14 years old and i want to learn more about investing and making money online. Do you have any tips for books or something i should read or anything? And when do you advise people to start investing?

  15. Turned 18 a couple months ago, immediately started investing using Robinhood, I have invested in single stocks and one ETF as of today and I'm looking also looking to invest in more ETFs.

  16. I really want to start to invest money but really don't know how at all. I'm only 17 and I'm in a small town and I can't think of anything.

  17. Is it even safe to drive like this? And this video was too long. The half of it is blah-blah.
    Also – I do not agree with "just do it". Without any planning 17 years old rookie's money will just go to the pockets of a bigger players and might not give any useful experience for him at all. It will be no difference with gambling. So how to avoid it?

  18. How to invest ๐Ÿ’ฐ and make it big:

    First off it takes money to make money, then find what your surroundings are looking for, it can be products or service, find where these services are available and invest in bulks or activity, hope y'all make it๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  19. I'm 17 (18 in a month) and I'm thinking about stocks, bonds, and real estate. Do you think a portfolio comprised of 80% stocks, of that 75% ETFs (VTI, SPX, QQQ), and 25% riskier individual stocks (MSFT, AAPL, DPZ, REITs like O, WELL), 5% bonds, and 15% savings for a business and real estate would be a good idea for someone young like me?

  20. Iโ€™m 16, my strategy is to invest all the money I get on YouTube into cryptos I am confident in, and then cashing in on them in 2 to 3 years to start growth dividend investing and live passively off that income

  21. I am currently 17 but back when I was 15 I made my first investment (not in my own name because of Australian taxation and I am underaged) I threw 8k into CSL and made my first $500 now I have about โ‰ˆ20k invested and another 5k in cash in the event of a crash

  22. Hi, I'm 17. Would you recommend penny stock trading, dropshipping, e-mail listing, or some other kind of investment which one should I start off with if I only have $600
