So you want to start angel investing?

It's more accessible than you think. But there's also a lot of snake oil out there.

Here's 4 steps to start angel investing sustainably, strategically, and with a higher likelihood of generating a good outcome:

๐Ÿงต
1. Set a budget.

Angel / VC investments are high risk / high return. That means there's a high chance you'll lose what you invested, and a small chance you'll make a LOT of money. Kind of like a lottery.

Would you spend tons of money on the lottery? Probably not.
Also consider: angel / VC investments take a LONG TIME to bear fruit. Like, a decade or more. So whatever you invest, be prepared to not have access to that money for at least a decade, at most never.

TL;DR:

Angel / VC should be a SMALL PART of your portfolio.
