Its pretty clear from many threads like the housing threads and also in the shares sections that there are many who are struggling to get to first base.
Establishing a Capital base so they can invest in all those things that some of us take for granted because we have a base from which to start from seems like a pipe dream.
Most know the saying
"There are those who work for money and those who have money work for them"
Great how do I get enough money so it works for me in a meaningful way!
I thought this thread would be a good place for ideas,perhaps experiences in how you can build that base---you know its like going for that first job and the interviewer says---so what experience have you had!---Employ me and I'll get the experience---wont I.
How do you get that deposit for that house---should I use it immediately for a house or should I build my capital base elsewhere?
What are my options.
If I have 5k and thats all I have what are ideas I can use to make that money work for me?
How much is enough to get into each suggestion.
What have you done to get past first base and beyond? What are your stories/experiences/practical suggestions?
I decided when 20 that if I worked for a boss (I had for 3 yrs) he determined to a large extent my earnings,particularly in a large organisation --I was lost in the clock cards---nothing but a number.
So with nothing but a $1500 loan from my Father (Who charged me interest!!!) I went to work for myself.
So I could govern my own destiny---bloody hell now I had 80 bosses!
More in my next post --but please join in there are plenty here who would benifit from the wealth of experience 14000 members here must have.
