Investing the Foolish way - Free Motley Fool Guide

The staff at The Motley Fool have been guiding people towards profitable investing for years, following some rules and breaking many others. Almost all of the different stock portfolios that they run have done an incredible job of out performing the S&P 500 and if you browse the Finance section of your local bookstore you're guaranteed to find at least 3 of their many books on the shelves. They even have a weekly show on NPR!

A lot of their knowledge can be found for free (though not quite as much as was available in the past) on their site and I would like to share with you one of the best how-to guides to investing that I have read. It's entitled 13 Steps to Investing Foolishly and, if you can get past the title, is an incredible step-by-step guide to start from where you are at now and end up with a very impressive investment portfolio without debt.

To be able to have a concise (and free!) walkthrough for getting out of debt, retirement planning, understanding investment strategies better, as well as many other things is an invaluable resource and I highly recommend you reading it to help you set some goals as well as build your financial knowledge. I also recommend that you browse through the rest of the site, it's full of very helpful information.

Thanks for the link Ron. I didn't know that Kiplinger's had put out the 25 stocks for a cleaner world article, some interesting companies listed on there, thanks for linking it on your site!
