Investment Workshop 01: Welcome!

Hello and welcome to the new and improved Investment Workshop! The Investment Workshop is a series of articles we wrote to help newcomers get started in building their own do-it-yourself FIRE portfolio. It was initially created waaaay back in 2016, and has quickly grown into the most popular resource on our site!

That being said, 2016 was a long time ago, and the workshop has been needing an update for a while. Articles have been rewritten, streamlined, and given a new life, and we are proud to present the new-and-improved Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop open for business!

As before, this will be your one-stop guide where we will walk you through the exact steps (with screenshots) of how you, the reader, can invest in low-cost Index ETFs just like we did!

Why? Because we can talk about Modern Portfolio Theory and Index Investing until we’re blue in the face, but talking about something is not the same as doing it. This workshop will show you exactly what you need to do, from opening up the right accounts, to designing your investment strategy, to maintaining your portfolio yourself going forward.

And your cost for participating: Nothing. I know that apparently what bloggers are supposed to do when they get big is to start hawking some $5000 e-course, but we’re not going to do that because:

  1. We hate that shit.
  2. We don’t need the money.
  3. We believe that knowledge about how to invest for your early retirement should be available to all. Unlike those big banks and financial companies trying to screw you every day, we don’t think knowledge about how to invest is something that only the rich or privileged should have access to. Everyone should have access to it, and it should be free.

So the cost of this course will be: $0. That’s right, zero. Zip. FREE!

We only ask that if you participate, please use the affiliate links we provided to open up your brokerage accounts, so we can cover the costs of running this blog and keep it free.

Standard Disclaimer: We are NOT licensed financial advisors. This Workshop is for demonstrative purposes only, and shouldn’t take the place of a formalized, holistic financial plan created by a licensed financial advisor. You participate at your own risk.

OK, so ready to get started? Me too! Let’s do it!
