Published on: Apr 16, 2021fb-roundtwitter-roundemail-round

In our final SkimmU course, we teamed up with Farnoosh Torabi, financial author and host of the “So Money” podcast to talk investing basics. Check out the pre-coursework, then watch the recording above.


  • Investing is for everyone.

  • The sooner you start, the more time your money has to grow.

  • All investing involves some risk. But NOT investing is risky, too. Thanks, inflation.

  • Diversifying your portfolio (aka investing in a bunch of different kinds of investments) can help you spread out your risk.

  • If you're focused on long-term investing goals, try to stay calm when the market freaks out.

Investing 101 ‎may be behind us, but you can put what you learned into practice by doing your post-course HW. Then check out our other classes.
