1. Index Funds vs Individual Stocks (My Worst Investing Mistake)
Description: We talked about ETF vs stock before, and index funds can be an ETF like VTI which tracks the total US stock market. ETFs, if you recall, are traded like stock shares. However, index funds can also be mutual funds like the much-loved VTSAX. Mutual funds are traded privately and less transparent than ETFs or stocks on the public markets.
