Worldwide Invest Better Day 9/25/2012

In honor of Worldwide Invest Better Day, we at The Motley Fool are recapping our "13 Steps to Investing Foolishly" -- steps you can follow to become a better, more Foolish investor.

In the following video, Chris Hill covers Step No. 12: paying it forward. 

It's proven that as people, we retain more information by sharing it with others. Not only will helping people with their finances help them and bring you big karma points, but it can make you a better investor, too. The world is full of people making bad investment decisions every day. Think about how many people got burned of Facebook's IPO. Any one of those millions of investors would have saved their money and avoided a few headaches had some savvy investors paid their knowledge forward. Start sharing today, and those you help won't be the only ones who are better off.
