    sup Mark...slow motion on my end bro. Real estate is always a good investment. People often doze on buyin mortgages or carying back mortgages. They are good investments because they are backed buy real estate, plus you get payments coming to you every month for 30 years or as long as it takes to pay off the mortgage.

    lil ray...Im still a firm believer that the best investment is your own business - whether part time or full time. it is something that you can control.

    Tony...actually I havent been watchin the markets too much lately. I do dollar cost average into a few index funds and a few stocks every month; every now and then I'll do some option plays or long or short something, otherwise im not too hip to whats goin on.

    peace

    What about for someone looking to invest, say, $100 to $300 a month into something on the side, easily managed, and post-tax ?

    I've already got my 401k maxed but I'm about to pay my vehicle off, as well as my father's mortgage so I'll have some extra cash to throw into something for the long term... a little bit adds up.

    Plus, I think there's a misconception that you need big cash to play the game, so any advice to those without the multiple zeros anyone ?

    Peace!

    heah, julian, the wife and I are thinking about this, but maybe about 3 to 5 years away...what should we be doing(haha @ "we be doing) to prepare. Looking at maybe a franchise like Mail Boxes Etc./UPS store....also, where can I look for grants, private investments, private placements, etc., for this opportunity?

    thanks in advance, julian...

    </font>[/QUOTE]Hi Ray, if you are looking to franchise I would recommend that you avoid retail...
    My uncle and i run an AlphaGraphics printshop (also a franchise) which is more focused on business-to-business transactions (alth we dont turn away retail). We did a survey before we opened up and about 9/10 owners were happy with the support they were receiving from the corporate center (which is based in Utah).
    PM me if you want to know more about it. peace

    The options are infinite. If you have tolerance for the market, look into puttin money every month into a S&P index fund. The S&P is the standard that everybody bases rates of return against.

    Very simple stuff: http://www.spdrindex.com/ourfunds/
    http://www.vanguard.com vanguard index 500
    http://www.fidelity.com fidelity spartan market
    http://www.dreyfus.com dreyfus basix S&P 500
    http://www.transamericafunds.com Transamerica Premier Index

    You cant intest in these funds on your own, but I would consult with a stock broker because they can elaborate on the subjet and be more detailed in terms of strategy and the picking of individual stocks if you choose to go that route. Make sure you find a broker that knows what theyre doing...interview several and ask how long theyve been in the business...ask for referals and also ask what their rates of return have been for each year that worked. Nevertheless, never let a broker handle your money blindly...always research along with them and keep them on their toes

    You may also want to save up a few hundred or a few thousand and start a part time business. You can accumulate money faster in the short term (1 year or less) and the money you generate from your business in the short term can help you buy more assets for the long term.

    Watching money grow with the buy and hold stragety in the stock market is like watching paint dry. Learn to make $ in the short term, invest it for the long term and the paint dries a whooole lot faster.

    </font>[/QUOTE]1. A great book to read is Mutual Funds for Dummies. Don't let the name fool ya.

    2. If your 401K\403B is maxed out I would do a Index fund like Julian suggests but do it in a Roth IRA. This is aftertax money but the money will grow tax free and you can take it out upon retirement tax free. In fact its looking like one may want to max out a Roth IRA first and then do a 401K.

    Congrats on your and your wife's decision ray!

    I'm not very familiar with fanchises, but I know there are tons of books and magazies on the market about franchises...check your local book store and library. Off the top of my head I know Entreprenuer magazine has alot on franchises

    Some steps may be to:
    1. Introduce yourself to owners of every franchise that you enter into. Pick their brain about the pros and cons of thier business.

    2. Get your debt in check. If you havent already, analyze your personal debt and put together a strategy to get rid of as much of it as you can. Also, if you havent, develop and budget, because when doing business, times can get very lean.

    3. Clean up your credit. Gman has posted some stuff on this

    4. Study legal structures. Recognize the value (pros/cons) of a s-corp, c-copr, llc, etc.

    5. Begin to establish credit for your business even if you havent started it. Get a business license/tax id #. Open a banking account and start to make credit card purchese with your business. That way when you start you will have at least some established credit.

    6. Search the internet/books/library on basics on how to start a business.

    7. Check with local colleges for information on starting businesses. Usually state colleges have business centers and give away free information and counseling on all the stages of starting a business.

    8. Meet and talk with many bankers. They can give you strategies on how to establish credit and give you advice on how to get loans

    9. Find a mentor. Find somebody who has what you want and find out how they did it. Also network to find big money people because they may want to partner with you or help fund what you do.

    10. Read "Rich Dad Poor Dad" and "Cash Flow Quadrant" by Robert Kiyosaki if you havent already

    As for the charges against me, I am unconcerned. I am beyond their timid lying morality, and so I am beyond caring.

In addition she has a system she sells on QVC that includes a will, types of insurance one needs, etc and pockets to keep everything together in one place when you need quick access to it. It's an excellent system with CD ROM's that fully explain everything in the system and how to use it. Suzy has products she hates (if you watch her show you know which ones they are ;) ) and she always gives you the straight dope.
