By now, you know that investing early is important and how powerful spare cash can be! But what do you do if you don’t have a job or steady income to generate funds for investing? If you do have a job with low income, you can check out this guide as well.

1. Leave enough for an emergency fund but otherwise redirect your savings

An emergency fund covers the cost of living for 3-6 months. Multiply the cost of living for 1 month by the number of months you would need emergency cash for ($x * 3).

2. Compete in Stock Competitions

Stock competitions typically give you mock money, fake funds equivalent to the USD, to invest in the real stock market! The simulators use technology to track the price movement of stocks so you’re getting the full investing experience without risk or actual ownership. Usually the team with the greatest profit earns the gold medal as well as some cash.
