I just started investing about a month ago. I wish I was over $100k+ like most of you who post on here but I was paying off my student loans and helping out my parents with their mortgage. I mostly have Tesla shares and I’m confident it will make me a lot of money in the next 5-10 years. Just posting to show others that it’s ok to not have $100k+ in investments.
