Money is a feminist issue — and yet, women are still reluctant to talk about it. According to a recent Bustle survey of more than 1,000 Millennial women, more than 50 percent of people said they never discuss personal finances with friends, even though 28 percent reported feeling stressed out about money every single day. Bustle's Get Money series gets real about what Millennial women are doing with their money, and why — because managing your finances should feel empowering, not intimidating.

When it comes to managing your money, you're probably already saving for the future, but are you investing in it, too? After all, like it or not, one day, you'll have to retire and will need another monetary source to live on. That's exactly where investing now can help you out years down the line.

"It's never too early to start investing, and you don't need much to invest in your future," Brandon Krieg, CEO of Stash, tells Bustle. "It's important that Millennials go beyond the common YOLO mentality and start preparing for their older years — even starting with $5 is better than investing nothing at all."

I couldn't agree more! That said, here are nine investing apps and resources to start using right now. As you probably know, every dollar counts, and wouldn't you rather have your money make you money versus it just sitting in your wallet or bank account, stagnant?
