How to make a $50k portfolio without investing in stocks

Posted March 07, 2018 07:22:04 When I was young and working full time, I didn’t even think about what my portfolio would look like.

Now that I’m an adult and have a family, I realize that I am a lot more involved in my investments.

I am now able to build a much stronger portfolio that includes stocks, ETFs, and index funds.
