Creating wealth requires smart investing which is something you have to learn if you want to achieve financial freedom.

In order to do this you will need to focus on smart investing.

If you want to learn more about how to invest smartly you can look here.

How to Focus on Finding Growth Investments

Over the past few years the market has witnessed a rise in value of growth stocks and a substantial rise in growth stocks’ earnings power. Growth stocks may be worth more than growth bonds, but there is a major difference. Growth stocks pay out over long periods of time and their earnings remain high year after year.

If you are thinking of buying growth stocks you need to put your mind in a different mindset.

Remember, growth stocks can buy themselves into trouble, and this can have serious consequences.

You can build wealth and enjoy a good life, but it won’t happen overnight.

Focus on buying small-cap growth stocks instead of growth bonds

You can buy growth bonds by paying the coupon, but you won’t get as much return as you get from growth stocks.

You may be tempted to buy growth bonds when they are cheap because they are not that attractive from a price-to-earnings (PE) standpoint. However, there are pros and cons to buy growth bonds and it’s always good to check out the good and bad that comes with buying growth bonds.

You can avoid this by sticking to small-cap growth stocks. In general, the smaller the company the more likely it is to produce higher growth and to get dividends. Small-cap growth stocks tend to offer higher returns than large-cap growth stocks as they have lower risks of losses. However, as with all investments, there is always risk.


Backlinks is the name of the incoming links you get to your website from other sites. In the search engine optimization world, the number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page. Google for example uses the backlinks for a given website in order to decide on it’s popularity and when calculating a Page Rank (PR), thus in general more backlinks mean that your website will get a higher rating. Especially when talking about Google and their PR you should consider that there are different types of backlinks each of which has different weight. Having fewer backlinks from higher rated and popular websites my give you an advantage over a lots of backlinks from new and not popular websites. Sometimes backlinks are also called incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links, but they all refer to the same thing it is just that the term backlinks became the most popular probably thanks to Google.
