Between working, walking my dog, devouring food, and all my other activities, I rarely have time to sit down and take a good look at my finances or study the stock market in depth. If I were serious about investing, I would consider contacting a financial analyst who could help me make the most of my very few dollars, as those folks spend all day scrutinizing different funds.
