Happy Veterans Day 11/11/20

I think of every Veterans day as a time to relive the memories I have had in the U.S Navy. I love to reflect on what I learned, the family I made and the memories that I will always cherish. There were times where I wanted to give up and just get of the Navy, but I pushed through them and became the woman I am today. I am thankful for everyone I have met on this journey so far and I can’t wait to see what’s still in store for me. Seven years down, many more to go! Thank you to all my brothers and sisters who I have had the honor of serving with.

Love ya’ll,

Happy New Year!

So Long 2019, Hello 2020!

Each year we have an opportunity to show ourselves who we want to be, who we are. Goals we aspired to achieve and achieved. Each year we find out how much more we love and accept ourselves. 2019 was definitely a year of growth, overcoming obstacles and realizing how much potential I actually held. Going into 2020, whoo! The new roaring ’20s, super excited, I wish nothing but love and positivity for everyone. I want more opportunities, good health, new friends and of course more adventures for you all. Be brave, have fun, make 2020 your year. I also want to thank everyone for starting off this blogging journey with me! I can’t wait to write more. Be safe my lovelies. Happy New Year!

Brand New To The World Of Stocks

All I kept hearing my friends and co-workers talk about one day was: Stocks. Now some of you may just scratch your head and wonder what the heck I am talking about?! Well let me welcome you to the confusing yet intriguing world of stocks. Stocks are basically are little investments into a company of your choosing a small piece of ownership in a sense. I figured that getting into stocks can’t be that hard or complicated. Well…I was kind of right. There are a handful of sights that you can look at that shows how the stock market is doing, what stocks are out there and how to get started on playing with stocks. I use the app conveniently downloaded onto my phone called Robinhood. This app is awesome! It’s straightforward and there is tips and tricks of the trade market in the app itself. Stocks also take time. You have to have patience, these things will take time. I check all the time, only because I’m super excited and impatient sometimes. It’s interesting to see them go up and down and how they’re doing.

The Site I Use

Like I mentioned before I use the site called Robinhood. You can use this website on the computer, tablet or smartphone. There are a ton of stock options on there! To figure out what type of stocks to buy, you have to do some research on them first. You don’t want to jump into a random stock that might potentially go down hill. On the app itself it will show you the stocks that are going up and down. Also you can find it on Google and Yahoo Finance. These will show you all the stocks and how they’re doing. I personally use the Robinhood app to keep an eye on my stocks, they also send out push notifications so they’re always at your fingertips. I love how easy it is to use and how easy the site is to navigate. It’s also good for beginners because they have a ton of low stocks on there so you can dabble in some stocks if you would like. Another great thing about Robinhood is that they will give you a free stock of their choosing for every person you refer or if you were referred to by someone. It’s a win win for everyone!

How To Choose?

There are definitely factors that can decide on how you want to spend your money on stocks. The economy, the Government and the Daily Current Events of the world can all determine the outcomes of the stocks that you want to buy or bought into. To help you get started off. You can click my Robinhood link and they will set you up with a free stock! Which I think is really awesome for them to do: Kats Robinhood. We basically help each other, you get a stock and so will I! From here you can see if you enjoy using stocks and we will help each other grow and succeed. I’m still learning and growing on stocks. It’s very Interesting and intriguing to see how the world in commerce is doing.

Additional Stock Trading

These sites are good for beginners. They are very informative on how to invest and they have less expensive stocks to invest in. Have fun, do your research, invest and try something new.
