Day 26 of BiG’s 30 Day Bucket List Investing Challenge


Time to invest – just do it.
Step 5
Investment shopping

If you’ve got a handle on these 3 important money and investing fundamentals we’ve already covered in the Challenge:

Managing your money and having your finances sorted

If you’ve still got some money things to work on – take a look at the resources in Challenge Day 2 and throughout BiG.

Understanding the best investing options for you

If you aren’t sure yet of what you want to buy, or how – Days 3-5 especially will help. You might want to do more research and take advantage of any end of financial year or other ‘special offers’ for investing products or services throughout the investment industry.

Look out for any deals or offers I come across on BiG and on BiG’s Facebook Page.

Getting professional advice from financial planners or other experts

Days 9-19 go through the types of advisers and if you’re going to use them, how to choose them

Then, you’re ready to buy shares, into a fund, an investment property or other investment.

Take a look in BiG Directory Ancillary investment services and Directories/Comparison/Rating/’Find’ sites and providers to learn:

  • How you buy investments
  • Who can help you buy them or buy them for you, such as:
    • Financial planners
    • Stockbrokers
    • Property investment advisers
    • Real estate agents
    • Buyer’s agents
Ready for your investment shopping?
Good luck as you spend time scouring investing markets with your shopping checklists and maybe shopping buddies.

Whether it’s the real estate pages with your 20 Must Ask Questions for Property Investors and Margaret Lomas, or anywhere else, with anyone else.

I hope that all the guides, tools and tips I’ve given you in BiG make your shopping more successful for you, than perhaps in the past.

Are you interested in buying property, shares, starting a business?
