How to Invest Your First $1,000

, Self-proclaimed life of the party

Do you have $1,000 to invest right now? It may not sound like much but you can use it to buy shares in LinkedIn, Tesla or even the New York Times! And those are just a few of more than thousands of options available.

Whether you've got $1,000 or $10,000 to invest, the objective is the same: to make your money grow. The choices might seem complicated - mutual funds, stocks, bonds, securities, but Ben & Mirza will walk you through the basics of setting your investment goals, choosing your investments, and when & how to buy and sell.

Note: All proceeds will be donated to Junior Achievement (, an organization that educates students on business, economics, and entrepreneurship.
