Welcome to invest.us!

So, what is invest.us all about? Well, it's basically an investing website founded by an American guy named John (that's me).  Although this site is about investing, more than anything it's about investing in the USA.

In a nutshell, the purpose of this site is to be a personal guide for anyone interested in investing in America.  Whether you're an American just learning to invest, or you're a non-American investor wanting to invest here, I try to present as much information as I can in a format that hopefully won't put you to sleep or leave you in a coma.

So thanks for visiting and enjoy your stay!

Are you new to investing?

Here's a few great American companies I bet you've heard of before - did you know all of them are publicly traded companies that anyone can buy shares of on the open market?


If you're just starting out as an investor, it can be really confusing trying to figure out the best way to invest money. I know, i've been there myself! Savings? Stocks? Real Estate? How do you know where to start? I sure didn't! A few years ago I decided to make some investments in the stock market, and I had no idea what I was doing. None! Needless to say, my ignorance cost me a lot of money in losses. The good side to this story is that I learned from my mistakes and eventually started making money. You can read my own personal investing horror story here, which tells how I lost almost my entire savings and how I made it all back - and then went on to triple it.

Anyway I decided to create this site for two reasons, 1.) To help other people navigate through the often confusing world of finance and investing while hopefully avoiding some of the mistakes I made, and 2.) To have a site primarily focused on investing in the United States. Even with all the current economic problems we have here, America is still one of the safest places in the world to invest money. And as an American myself (born and raised here), I can't really think of a better place to live and do business!
