Stocks; forming a foundation

“Stocks Chart Graph Shows Increase Investment Earnings” by Stuart Miles from

In order to form a good understanding of stocks, we need to start from the beginning.

What are stocks?  Companies raise money by issuing shares of stock.  By purchasing and holding the stock, you are part owner in the company.  As a company earns more, the stock increases in value and investors are willing to pay more for the stock.

A stock you may have purchased for $1 per share over time may eventually be worth $11. If you sell the stock at that time for $11 you have recognized a 1000% gain.  However, if you hold the stock and it rises, but then falls to $.10 per share, you now recognize a big loss.  The value of the stock can be unstable and fluctuate, which can risk your capital.

How much risk are you willing to take?  Please comment.

To flip or buy and hold…that is the question.

Real estate can be a great way to invest your money. However, you must be careful. It cannot be an emotional or a desperate purchase.  The decision must be factually based and VERY carefully analyzed.   Buy with the end in mind. 

There are two different strategies that we will be focusing on for real estate investing. One is buy and hold; the other is to flip properties.  Your choice depends on what your goals are and the current market conditions.  I have heard other investors state that they put so much effort into each deal they want to hold onto them, but it really depends…

Do you like to flip or hold and why?  Please comment.



If you don’t love it, make a plan to leave it.

If dislike your career, start making a plan to find one you can be positively passionate about.  Our work can generate strong emotions and the amount of time you spend each week working is substantial.  It is very possible your negative emotions will carry over to your relationships and job performance.   It will be very difficult to be a top income earner if you are not in the proper mindset.  Also, you owe it to yourself and those around you to be happy most of the time.  If you don’t love it, make a plan to leave it.

What career are you passionate about?  Please comment.

No, I won’t be quiet! The library is a great source of FREE entertainment!

Shhh Stock Photo by photostock from freedigitalphotos.netYour local library can be a remarkable resource for all kinds of savings for your family.  The obvious is all the books they have, but did you know that if you can’t find what you need at the library you can get an “interlibrary loan” so you don’t have to go out and buy the book.  There are also on-line books and audios that you can borrow right from home without going into the library.  The library also has movies to borrow which can eliminate any DVD or Blue Ray rental fees.  Do you like to go to museums?  Many libraries have free passes to borrow, which can be a big saver!  Enjoy some FREE time with your family this weekend, visit your local library!
