Many good points - never invest more than you can stomach to lose.

I had some Litecoin mining rigs back in 2014 and can see the complexity in mining if we're not doing it early enough for the average person. Of course there are other coins, but mining is not for the beginner unless they're just using a simple CPU or GPU miner like:

@all, with some Bitcoin, it can be traded for other coins that are easier to sell so keep that in mind.

Early on, I had to go to Coinbase also for the reason that many of the exchanges made it almost impossible to do business with if you're in the USA. A lot of the banks/card companies blocked these transactions, etc. and Coinbase was in the early stages of getting some traction.
