Why Investing Is Important?

If you had a Grandma like mine, you grew up hearing about a time when you could get a burger for just 15 cents- at Mcdonald’s. Unfortunately, the price of all goods and services increases over time due to inflation.  The takeaway is that money becomes worth less over time.
