Almost Millions: Personal Finance For Freelancers, 1099ers, & The Self-Employed

A few quick words about Robinhood, a new-ish investing app that lets you purchase stocks through your phone without paying a fee:

It’s awesome.

Robinhood makes its money through other methods, you save $7 or $8 on every transaction made. Crucially, it lowers the barrier for entry–instead of needing $2000 or $5000 to get started with a stock portfolio, it lowers the bar to $500 (or even lower, if you so wish). It’s not as full-featured as some of the competition, but you can’t beat the features for the free price.

Try it.
