Motley Fool CEO Tom Gardner shares a story that illustrates how to get your loved ones into investing at any age.

Think the stock market is a man's domain? Think again. This video is from the recent Women's Investing Conference held at The Motley Fool headquarters in Alexandria, Va., which gathered women investors from all ages and walks of life to discuss how individual investors can get an edge on Wall Street and invest better.

In this segment, Fool CEO Tom Gardner takes the stage and tells the story of a young boy who received a gift of a golden tennis racket and how it changed the path of his life forever. He also discusses how anyone can give the gift of their own "golden tennis racket" to a loved one by getting her interested in investing -- and how it can change her life.
