So I want to know if anyone has invested in the stock market or has experience with investing. I want to know if its possible to invest in yourself. I don't know math very well as I tried to go to a bank and I told them I was interested in investing to gain extra income. He explained a bunch of numbers to me that I didn't understand but I got one thing, it is possible to invest and earn a bunch of money. Sooo I guess my question is: Would it be something you advise me doing? Has anyone had experience with investing and can anyone point me in the right direction? And if you DO advise me, what kind of things should I look into, watch out for etc... With this economy is it even safe?

Ok what you want to do is contact a small investment company and speak with a broker <br />
If they are good at what they do (which is invest your money) they will spread it out through different stocks and suggest that you let it sit there for a certain amount of time<br />
that is how you make money is by letting your money sit on a company that is growing<br />
But it takes a little time and patience to start seeing a return<br />
talk to a broker and they should be able to explain how they could set up a portfolio customized to fit your wants and needs<br />
Good Luck and many happy returns

Hmmm... that is the first good idea I have come across. I will have to consider that because while I work a minimum wage job and go to school why not let my money sit? That way when Im busy doing other stuff maybe over time my money can grow. Im more worried about my future anyways so maybe I can do something about it.

Best Answer

yeah and the cool thing is when you invest like that is that you are able to pull funds out of one place if you arent seeing results and put them somewhere else

Ha! lol I like your answer I am going to have to put your answer up in a blog on here so I can remember to do that when I get my paycheck and hunt around for a good investment company.

Invest in gold. Smart people always seem to invest other people's money and skim off some profits. Run for office...people will throw money at you to get their point across.

@caithness
Im not that type of person. Investing in gold sounds smart but I will literally run someone into the ground if they thought they could "buy" me with their future policies. I'm for the citizens not against them. But I appreciate your answer, I just don't believe in the second part of it.

Investment for poor people is where a rich person takes your cash and gives you a sheet of paper claiming you own a piece of his company. He can default on that paper at any time unless you find another poor person to buy it from you before the rich guy defaults on it.

Best Answer

Or if things go well the and company thrives your piece of paper is worth twice what you paid for it. It's risky. But plenty of people risk money in the market.

Best Answer

Ever notice they don't risk anything when they let you buy a home?
