As a young twenty-something, navigating through some of my adult-firsts has been interesting. Career-building, house-shopping, figuring-out-life-ing. There's a lot to think about when you're trying to build a solid foundation for yourself, and a significant part of my new-adult efforts have been focused on saving money and building financial independence.
Sometimes it can be hard to save when you're relatively fresh out of school and trying to find your footing; you have loans, or you're starting with an entry-level salary, and you may feel like you have nothing to contribute to your savings. And that can feel overwhelming. The thing I appreciate the most about working for Invisor is that we're inclusive. You don't have to have a lot of money saved up to start investing. You don't have to make large deposits. You can contribute whatever amount you're comfortable with at your own pace. And, no matter what stage you're at, we do our best to make investing with Invisor comfortable.
I know that as a young person, it's easy to get into that out-of-sight, out-of-mind mentality when your retirement is thirty plus years away. And it's easy to tell yourself you'll start contributing to your TFSA again once you have a higher salary, or have paid off your student loans. But at Invisor, we're giving people another option: to invest and take care of your bills. To start new chapters of your life and start saving for your future. Saving money and investing is simple when you have the right tools, and we want to give Canadians everything they need to invest/live/retire well.
I come in to work everyday and help show people this can be reality: they can reach the financial goals they've set for themselves, and they absolutely have the right to professional advice that's simple and honest. How great is that? Plus, it doesn't hurt that coffee and laughter is never in short supply in the office, and we've been known to enjoy the occassional pizza. It's all about balance, right?
