Biggest Hurdle for First time investors?!

In my opinion, it's fear of the unknown. On your first investment there are so many unknown unknowns, and we KNOW there are many unknown unknowns. We fear that, and it causes many people to sit on the sidelines indefinitely.

There are always reasons "not to invest." The story of your mom's friend's brother's step-nephew who lost his shirt on a rental will always be out there.
