What is Investing?

Investing is how you make your money grow, or appreciate for long term financial goals. It is a way of saving your money for something further ahead in the future.

Saving is a plan to set aside a certain amount of your earned income over a short period of time in order to be able to accomplish a short term goal. It is a plan of action where you plan on acquiring a certain amount of money by redirecting some of the money you have received from your various sources of income.

Investing, on the other hand, is a much longer term activity. We consider investing as an action that is based on long term goals and is primarily accomplished by having your money make more money for you.
