Have you ever invested in real estate? If so, please share your experiences.

Or maybe you started your own small business? Do you feel like this was a good investment?

A for Dummies book is definitely where I'd need to start. I've had this brain block about investing mainly because of my finances themselves. But I also wonder if it's wise to invest or pay down debt first or do these things simultaneously. See, I'm totally green.

Trish - I like the For Dummies books because they are so easy to understand.

My advice would be to pay down debt while building an emergency fund. This way you are building a reserve of money for future needs that can help you avoid creating more debt.

Plus, if you are paying off credit cards, you are getting rid of a high interest rate. Credit card rates are impossibly high. Any investment you make would not produce as high a return so it's better to pay off the high interest debt.

Now I'm not counting the mortgage in this debt paydown. Obviously, that will take a while to pay. So you might as well go ahead and start investing.

Once you build up a reserve fund (say 3 months of expenses) then I recommend starting to put money into investments (preferably a 401k or Roth Ira).
