I'm Not Rich, But Can I Still Be An Investor?


If you didn't grow up surrounded by financial whizzes, investing and the whole concept of the sharemarket can feel really daunting and probably something that's only for people who are already super rich.

But that is not the case; anyone can be an investor and you don't need a lot of cash to get started. 

In this episode of The Quicky we speak to two very money-smart women about the practical steps you need to take to increase your wealth in 2022 and beyond, and how to avoid common mistakes often made by first-time investors.
