Investing is just like anything else in life.
It can be as easy or as difficult as you want to make it.
People have often drawn parallels between fiscal fitness and financial fitness.
Indeed, there are a lot of similarities.
To build wealth, you first need to spend less than you earn; to lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you ingest.
It’s basic math at its core.
But as someone who’s very interested and active in both investing and fitness, I notice further similarities: some people like to complicate things more than necessary.
