My first inclination is always to try to look “for the next big thing”. As you will see from the rules below, these are going to be businesses that are mostly driven by sweat equity. It can not be a business that generates any revenue from advertising. Because I want this to be a business where you sell something and get paid for it. Im not promising I will definitely invest anything. Rather than trying to be a Venture Capitalist, I was looking for an idea that hopefully could inspire people to create businesses that could quickly become self funding. I also expect that other people will steal the idea and use it elsewhere. The idea is not just to help you, but to figure out how to help the economy through hard work and ingenuity. If you dont make your numbers, the funding stops 6. Once you get the initial funding you are on your own 10. As I find businesses I like, I will use the email address you provide before you post to get in contact with you. You must post your business plan here on my blog where I expect other people can and will comment on it. If its a good idea and worth funding, we want it replicated elsewhere. I make no promises that if your business is profitable, that I will invest more money. If you do get money, it goes into a bank that I specify, and I have the ability to watch the funds flow and the opportunity to require that I cosign any outflows. In your business plan , make sure to specify how much equity I will receive or how I will get a return on my money. No mult-level marketing programs (added 2/10/09 1pm) Im sure I will come up with more rules as I see what comes along, if anything.I will invest money in businesses presented here on this blog. Thats the only way to get and stay profitable in such a short period of time. If nothing comes along that I think is viable, thats the way it goes.Well, it’s certainly not easy, but here are a few things to consider: The younger you are, the more time you have to get rich.
However, it’s important to realize that the definition of “rich” changes based on how much you make.
You don’t have to be Warren Buffet to pick good stocks.
Including someone as an authorized user on one of your accounts will not affect your credit scores, even if the other person has a poor credit history.
Rent payments show up like an auto loan (if you have a defined lease term), or like a charge card (when you pay month-to-month).
More than half of Americans wish they were rich but over 75% think they will never become rich in their lifetime.
