If you do, you can make money even in today's uncertain markets. I know some people who are making out fairly well for themselves, with a lot of time involved.----John - The Eternal Pessimist.
quote:Originally posted by tweenerI don't think you can find a 6% savings account, but you can find annuities that offer a guaranteed 6% (or close). You can find mutual funds that are not guaranteed but are very stable "safe" that do even better than that. Personally, I like this approach because I don't have to mess with it except for the initial research and some low level monitoring.Neil, some people really enjoy "making money". The ones that get rich are the ones that have some skill at it (not the gambling types that love the stock market for the gambling) and like making money more than they like spending money. There are some like that. Personally, I love spending money, but the making it is a real drag.----John - The Eternal Pessimist.
