Go with what you know and if you are thinking of trying another investment or savings vehicle, research the heck out of it -- just don't take one other persons opinion.
The information they give you may be 100% accurate but you need to have a full scope of your risks in any investment you make. Know all of the pros and con's and then decide whether or not you can tolerate the worst happening or if it would be too devastating.
Here are some of my suggestions for accessible information sources before you invest:
Realty: Danielle Pierce, Mark Whitten, Max Maxwell, Douglass Depte
Stocks: Red Panda, Wall Street Trapper, The Black Financial Channel, Our Rich Journey
There are so many resources. What are your favorites?
