Firdaus (https://www.meetup.com/startbusiness/members/103663232/) began his financial education in 2014, starting with stock investing, where he had lost about 80% of his initial investment. The contributing factors were being too eager to start and a lack of understanding the market.
After investing his time and money on financial education, and carefully scrutinizing the market, Firdaus was rewarded with almost 350% capital gains. In 2015, he started investing in precious metals to widen his financial portfolio. Within just 14 months of investing, his net worth increased by almost 17%.
