The hardest part of this is emotional control. This is why I start you off “easy” by using very little money, like $50. Once you get use to dealing in bitcoin, you can ramp up and use more money (if you want). Don’t go too fast and everyone has their own financial goals.
For me, I got in early and for around $700 usd in late 2016. I have been growing my stake since then. But if I lacked emotional control, I would have fretted over the ups and downs too much instead of staying focused on following my compound/withdraw plan. I Even bought at 34 satoshis and then had to eventually sell around 10 satoshis, so my break even took about 3.5 months, which is still not bad.
The best expert on emotional control is Mike Cernovich’s Gorilla Mindset. If you already own a copy of it, re-read it to help you through the emotions. Trust me, it’ll help A LOT.
