This question already has an answer here:
I've been collecting information about the best investment practices, however I'm have very little financial knowledge and was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction. I feel like I don't even know the correct questions to ask. I guess my question is where do people normally start? At the very least is there a simple way for me to start earning interest?
I live in the United States and have planned some money planned ahead in case of an emergency. I'm 22, Single and living out of an apartment. My work doesn't offer any savings programs like a 401(K). My goals would be that eventually I could live entirely on investments/interest.
