I agree that the financial community makes investing look complicated. Meanwhile, Motley Fool began with the idea that individuals can learn the basics and do quite well.

Some of the rules relating to IRAs and 401ks are complex. There can be situations where pros can help you avoid expensive mistakes. Ditto estate planning. And businesses.

Most can do very well with a basic investment strategy if they simply continue to participate and maintain it over time.
