Investment Strategies Toolbox

You put 10% of your paycheck into savings... contribute the recommended amount to your 401(k)... pay off your credit cards each month... in short, you follow “the
rules.” And at the end of it all, hopefully you’ll get to retire with some dignity. When you think about it, that’s a pretty disappointing best-case scenario, isn’t it? Yet it’s what most people accept as gospel.

Not us. At Investment U, our goal is to help readers do more than just “survive.” We want to help you rise above mediocrity... to achieve liberty through wealth,
using the time-tested tools and strategies below.
