The first thing is to decide what your objectives are.
The second thing is to decide what level of risk you are going to take.
The third thing is to think carefully about your opinions. Think for yourself.
You can take opinions, but do not follow anyone blindly. No one has a crystal ball.

Don’t buy anything you don’t understand. Do enough research to be confident
in what you are doing. Invest amounts that you can handle emotionally if things go against you, because they probably will.

Good luck to you.
