She makes points about:

  • Ownership Investments
    • Stocks
    • Real Estate
    • Precious Objects (Art, Collectables, Metals)
    • Business Investments
  • Lending Investments
    • Bonds
    • CDs (Certificate of Deposit)
    • TIPS (Treasury-inflation protected securities)
  • Alternatives
    • REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts
    • Venture Capital (think like the being the sharks in "Shark Tank")
    • Commodities (Oil, corn, coffee beans)
  • Funds
    • Mutual Funds
    • Index Funds
    • ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds)
    • Hedge Funds

Her simple explanations are easy to understand and yet she provides good links to provide a way to get more in depth information about the kinds of investments.
