I wished I had learned about investing last year like I was going to, as I'd like to take advantage of this rare time in history, but honestly don't know how, and I'm not keen to lose money because of ignorance like many new investors.

Just sign up with any broker. Charles Schwarbb, Meryl Lynch etc. link your bank to it. Then deposit money. And buy shares. Don't go into margin if you're new to investing.

"Invest like a dead person"

On average, the market has outperformed majority of fund managers for the last 100 years.

Put your money into an ETF (exchange-traded fund) or a TDIF (Target date index fund) and don't touch it until retirement.

Not a regret, but I wish I had a bunch of $ that I could risk losing to put into the market.

That's what I do, ETF, b/c no day trader.

Occasionally, I will buy 1 particular stock & make a few bucks ala Ford & Tesla, but not often b/c I'm far from an expert

No regrets so far. wasn't heavy into the stock market but now there is opportunity to grab things at a heavy discount.

I'm sure I'll be kicking myself in 10 years for not investing more than I currently am though. just like I kicked myself for not investing more into bitcoin when it was on the rise.

I got in with bitcoin early when it was on the rise...got nervous, and got out a lot quicker than I should have LOL!

I still made some decent money, but man I could have made a lot more.

I wish I took this toilet paper crisis more seriously.. 10 years from now there won't be any more toilet paper and the ones who stocked up heavily are now the wealthiest 1% in the world.
