How Investing has Changed Our Lives

We received many inspiring entries for our first annual Invest Better Video Contest, but one rose to the top to win the $5,000 grand prize.
Meet Edward Bautista and his family, who share their story of how investing took them from sleeping on the floor and eating ramen noodles every day to paying for their daughter's college education. Edward's video inspired us because it shows how even when starting small, patient, long-term investing provides financial security and opens up our options. For example, Edward and his family can now afford to escape their Maui home for trips to snowy spots like Idaho!
