How to Avoid the Most Common Investing Errors

Podcasting with Stacy Johnson
Aaron Freeman / Money Talks News

Taking too much risk. Not taking enough risk. Following the herd.

These are just a few examples of potential pitfalls you’ll encounter in the wild world of Wall Street.

Whether you’re a novice investor or you’ve been at it for decades like me, it’s easy, and expensive, to fall into various investment traps.

In this week’s podcast, we’re going over the most common investing mistakes. You’ll never avoid them all — we’re only human — but the fewer things you do wrong, the more you’ll be right. And when it comes to investing, the more often you’re right, the richer you’ll be.

As usual, I share the broadcast booth with longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit.

Sit back, relax and listen to this week’s “Money” podcast!

Not familiar with podcasts?

A podcast is basically a radio show you can listen to anytime, either by downloading it to your smartphone or other device, or by listening online.

They’re totally free. They can be any length (ours are typically just under a half-hour), feature any number of people and cover any topic you can possibly think of. You can listen at home, in the car, while jogging or, if you’re like me, when riding your bike.

You can listen to our latest podcasts here or download them to your phone from any number of places, including Apple, Spotify, RadioPublic, Stitcher and RSS.

If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe to ours. You’ll be glad you did!
