About Let’s Start Investing

Let’s Start Investing is a website dedicated to teaching the basics of investing to anyone that has wanted to learn how to invest but just never took action. Lots of people want to start investing but have no idea where to get started. As a result, they sit by the sidelines when if they had just taken action, they could have been preparing themselves for a better future with more wealth.


“We want to show people first-hand how to get started with investing so taking the first step is easier and leads to more steps towards growing wealth.”

How This Site Came To Be

There are a lot of investing websites online today. Most of them are built for established and seasoned investors. Oftentimes these sites are run by brokerages or companies that are trying to earn the business associated with owning the accounts of their investors. That’s great but there is definitely a hole for someone that’s never invested before.

When someone is new to investing, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. It’s easy to get intimidated by the amount of information out there and often times it seems impersonal.

Eric BaglioOpens in a new tab. is the founder of Let’s Start Investing. He is 38 years old and has been investing on his own for the last 12 years. He has a bachelor’s degree in Nuclear Engineering Technology but found his true passion in personal finance.

He has had to teach himself every step of the way by reading and listening to as many books that he could get his hands on, learning countless techniques related to investing, trading, options, REITs, peer-to-peer lending, and more.

He is a financial specialist that has helped hundreds of active duty service members by showing them how to build budgets, how to file their taxes, and how to get started with investing for their short and long-term goals.

When he started Let’s Start Investing, he had one vision. That vision was to show people first-hand how to get started with investing so that taking the first step is easier and leads to more steps towards growing wealth.

That’s what this site is all about. It’s about learning the fundamentals so that anyone that wants to learn to invest can feel comfortable enough to get started and forge their own journey to financial independence and wealth.

First-Hand Reviews

One thing that we decided was that we were not going to allow this site to write about something we don’t believe in. That means when we write a review, we actually take the time to use what we are reviewing.

If it’s a book review, that means we’ve read the book. If it’s a service review, that means we’ve used the service. If it’s a brokerage account, it means we’ve put real money into that brokerage account and tried it out. Everything that we review is tested. That was very important to us when we started Let’s Start Investing. We generally prove our authenticity by filming companion videos of our reviews on our YouTube ChannelOpens in a new tab..

Reviews are not bought. If a company wants us to review their service or product, we will do so with the stipulation that we will be giving an honest review. The trust of our readers is the most important thing to our brand and is inline with our core values as a business.

Always Learning

We are always learning new ways to invest. The world of finance is always evolving. As we learn information, we write about what’s new. Often this leads to articles of new services and capabilities about investing.

Sometimes it means a previous article may need to be updated to be made even more accurate. Just because we write an article doesn’t mean a year from now it’s old. We constantly go back and improve all of our content.

If one of our readers contacts us that they believe we have something outdated or incorrect, it is put into a short review queue and evaluated as quickly as possible.

What We Do and Don’t Specialize In

We mostly focus on long-term investing. We are fans of both growth stocks as well as income stocks and focus on a value approach.

We have a lot of experience in swing trading but do not cover a lot of information on day trading.

We have experience in trading risk defined options.

We do not have an interest in Forex, futures, or binary options. If we write about any of these topics it is generally to draw the reader to reasons that we do not focus on these investing strategies.

The Future Ahead

We are very excited about the future of this site and hope to grow it into an incredible brand that people share with others and come back and thank us for getting them started in investing.

We are always open to comments and questions which can be left on our contact pageOpens in a new tab..
