OP I don't think investing or penny stocks is where your head should be at. I'm no pro at investing (actually had a thread asking for help simplifying my mess of a portfolio - it's going well) but what I do know and where I think you should start is with personal finance.LiquidSky wrote: ↑Sun Sep 30, 2018 4:16 pmI have to work crappy jobs just to pay for food. I don’t have enough money left over from paying my student loans, which are massive, to buy anything but food. I do live in a very, very, small apartment with a few other people.
I’m hoping you could get really rich at home, because I am really sick and can only work from home these days. I have no money, I will have to start with penny stocks most likely. I’m broke because of my college loans, which I hope to pay back in full soon after I become a beast in investing, lol.
So where do I begin?
Everyone has said it to some degree but I think it's actually what you should be focused on. Personally what helped me is aggregating my financial accounts using free services; any would do: Mint, Personal Capital, etc. By logging in your financial accounts to these services, you'll get a picture of your cash flow (money you've earned for the month vs money spent) and with a bird's eyeview and vigilance, you'll be able to take an active approach to budgeting and hopefully see opportunities to save.
You said you're really sick...I'm not sure what your ailment is but accumulating any measure of wealth will be extremely difficult if your ability to work is limited because the first step is learning how to spend less than you earn but of course that means you need a regular income to spend less than.
