Most people never take that first step for one of two reasons. They think they're not rich enough or they think they're not smart enough. Both facts couldn't be any farther from the truth. Some of the dumbest people I know started with next to nothing and today they have six figure portfolios.
The key? Simple. They started. They took that first step and bought their first stock. From that point on they simply reinvested their dividends. Today they have no worries.
