To comprehend the effects of inflation fully, try asking your parents or grandparents how much a car cost 20 years back.
Surprised with the digits? That, my friend, is the power of inflation.
According to Statista, global inflation rates have risen from 2.71% in 2015 to 3.18% in 2020. Assuming better days are ahead, it is safe to say that the rates will continue to soar in the future.
Regretfully, not many have moved to bulletproof their assets from the threats of inflation.
The ordinary men think the rich has gotten rich because they invested in the stock market. But in actuality, stock investing is but one of the means the rich employ to beat inflation.
And if you’re one of the ordinary clan who still places money in a bank, earning 0% or close to 0% savings interest rates, then you might want to reconsider your options.

This is probably one of the most common misconception to stock investing. Truth is, you don’t need a great sum of capital to invest in the stock market, you could start with as little as $500-$1000 and you’d do fine.
Without a doubt, we should focus on our full-time career, be it as a worker or as a business owner. But, it’s equally as important for us to find ways to create new income streams, especially passive ones, in our lifetime. Warren Buffet explains why, “If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.” And stock investing, is definitely the way to go.
Let’s get this straight. You’d only be declared bankrupt, if you fail to repay your loans. The reason why you hear people going bankrupt by investing in the stock market, is because they borrowed to invest. In other words, as long as you steer clear of leveraged investing, you’d be fine. Of course, that doesn’t mean you won’t suffer losses, it’s part and parcel of investing, though that can be minimised if you know what you’re doing. Remember, being bankrupt and making losses are two entirely different things.

I had a full-time job before I began investing.
Every day, when I returned home, I’d throw myself on the couch and stare into nothingness. I was so drained and exhausted, I’d rather not do anything but be a couch potato.
Things took a turn after I began investing. I was surprised by how quickly my assets were accumulating through my investments. My passive income was growing at a rate beyond what I could have imagined.
Soon, working full-time became an option to me because my passive income was generating enough to cover my daily expenses. With that, I was blessed with more time and flexibility to do what I loved and to spend time with those I loved.
I was finally free to explore more possibilities in my life, because I began investing in the stock market.

What you’ll learn in this course, is an investment approach (value investing) – rather than a specific investment strategy that will only be applicable for certain markets. In fact, once you master this approach, you’ll be able to apply the techniques across not just US markets, but other foreign markets as well.
Certainly! Value investing is no secret approach – it’s a widely discussed approach and various experts have written papers, articles and even books on it. In fact, if you Google “value investing”, you’ll find podcasts and tonnes of tutorial videos on the topic. The required learning time and financial costs for each of these options would also vary. Learning effectiveness may also differ from option to option as some merely talks about the approach very lightly without relating it with real life case studies. Meanwhile, more than 2500+ individuals have completed the Investment Mindset course (the Mandarin version). If you’re looking for a systematic, efficient and effective way to learn about value investing, then this option is definitely value for money.
