I was wondering how people invested during graduate school. Did any of you take side jobs and put in 50 dollars a month in their portfolio? I was looking into doing safe Dividend ETF's so I have don't have to micro-manage it as much. Any suggestions and tips? I have been investing for now 4 years and it's been great, thanks, tech. I am doing some calculations and I can get 7% growth in just dividends if the market is still bullish. Which could be very nice especially during a bearish market. I know this is not the most typical question on here but would be great if anyone has tips or any experience.
