Can you explain investing and the stock market like I’m five? Or at least like I’m a new college student?
Wow – that is a loaded question. And the simple answer is no.
Investing in the stock market is not something to be done lightly. You must start by learning.
The Amarillo College Washongton Street Campus hosted an open house for its new Money Management Center Jan. 30.
The center is a resource for students to go for help with money management. Its main goals are to help students understand key personal financial concepts, encourage student retention and degree completion, facilitate career readiness, lower overall student debt levels and prevent student loan default, said Lisa Bentley, director of the Money Management Center.
