If investing feels like a rich person’s game, it’s not your imagination: Many investments cater to the wealthy. But there are plenty of ways to invest with a smaller amount like $500.

After all, regularly investing those small chunks over a long time horizon just might be the single best path to building wealth — especially if you have high-interest credit card debt paid off and you’re contributing enough to earn any available 401(k) match from your employer.

With brokers and robo-advisors requiring low minimums, it’s possible for anyone to get in on the action. Here are five points to consider when investing $500.

Nice ideas, thx!
