Waiting 20 Years Can Cost You Millions - Dont Wait Start Today
Many Young people live for Today. They really don't fully understand the power of compound interest. The Difference between investing as little as $20 a week at age 20 or waiting until age 50 can be over $3,000,000 (yes 3 Million). Don't wait start today!
Recently I was in a 7-11 and I watched as a young man Purchased $10 worth of Lottery Tickets. As he was walking away from the counter he started talking to me. He told me he just turned 21 and he was going to buy $10 worth of Lottery Tickets for every Pick six as long as he had a steady Job. In Missouri they have 2 Pick Six Drawings Weekly. I said to him Here is my card give me a call and I will show you a surefire way to become a Millionaire.
He looked at me and said sure sure. I looked back at him and Said I will meet you tomorrow across the street at the coffee shop and Coffee is on me would morning or afternoon be better. He Replied I get off work at 2pm So I can be here at 3pm. I said 3pm it is.
I went home and plugged some numbers in an Excel Spreadsheet. Remember I did promise to make this 21 Year old kid a Millionaire. I was going to do for him what no one ever did for me.
The Results are very telling. If my young friend were to invest his $20 a Week and receive a 10% Return on his investment
At the 12% Return My Young Friend would loose over $2,400,000 the Difference between $3,400,00 and $1,000,000
Now if my Young Friend were to Play the Lotto for 30 Years and Wait until he is 51 to take my advice he would loose over 3,300,000 at 12% the Difference between $3,400,000 and $86,000.

Stock Market Retirement Investment Plan
For a successful retirement investment plan to work in the stock market, some 'reasonably sure' assumptions would have to be made:
In a Time of Need
As I take my leisurely walk with my dog through the older section of the local cemetery, I pause to read the details on the barely legible, weathered headstones. I am fascinated with the dates, for I know each stone has a story to tell, a history of its own time and place, but only enough space for identity. Proceeding up the rolling asphalt pathway, I am led into the new section of the cemetery. It becomes crystal clear as I compare the cemetery's old sections with the new, Americans are living longer.

Mutual Fund Selection Made Simple By Indexing!
Non-indexed mutual funds try to keep it secret that actively managed mutual very funds rarely do better stock market indexes. The higher fees of the managed funds really make it hard for these funds to out compete indexed funds. Smart financial journalists occasionally rat out fund managers for not educating the public in this regard. When this happens the mutual fund managers make a feeble attempt at self defense by pointing to something called the 5% rule.

Everybody Wants to Know How to Invest
Those unfamiliar with the process of making and managing investments often have more than a few trepidations about investing in general. They figure that, since they do not know how to invest, they will never learn. Of course the horror stories of investors who lost their life savings on some bad deal don't help people to feel any less secure when figuring out how to invest.
Investing and the Fear of Regret and Greed
People tend to feel sorrow and grief after having made an error in judgement.
Franchise Opportunity Sellers Beware; franchise buyers lie on forms?
It seems completely absurd that franchise buyers lie about their financial position, available cash and abilities in order to buy a franchise. After spending 8 years setting up franchises around the nation and fielding inquiries I am appalled at the lack of integrity of the average business buyer. If you wonder why franchisors make franchise buyers fill out forms and ask lots of questions it is because 75% or more of every franchise inquiry to a franchise company is misrepresentative of their reality. A franchise opportunity seller should beware of franchise buyers lying on forms.
The High Price of Oil
In less than four years, the price of oil has risen about 300%, or over $50 a barrel. The Light Crude Continuous Contract (of oil futures) hit an all-time high at $67.80 a barrel Friday, and closed the week at $67.40 a barrel. Persistently high oil prices will eventually slow economic growth, which in turn will cause oil prices to fall, ceritus paribus.
Why Do You Want to Become a Online Trader?

Here are ten more WISDOM packed GEMS that ooffer very unqiue insights to the world of trading and investing.
The Truth About Real Estate Investing - Is It Right For You?
You have probably been hearing, seeing and reading that real estate investing is the best thing since sliced bread. There are many late night cable television infomercials spewing out sales pitches for courses that teach you how to buy residential real estate no money down or for next to nothing. Furthermore, polished pitch men on the advertisement emphasize that it is so easy that anybody can do it. They smugly show you that it is simple as they pencil out on the back of a napkin how you will supposedly make a fortune in real estate. Then these real estate investment course promoters show "actual" interviews of people who have reportedly made gobs of money with the course system.
The Difference Between Investing and Trading
Investing and Trading are not the same thing. The returns you seek, the length of time it takes to achieve those returns, the amount of risk one is prepared to take, and the commitment one can make to monitor the investments dictate the strategy of whether to invest or trade.
Dont Catch a Falling Knife
One of the most common mistakes made by inexperienced investors is trying to "catch a falling knife". This is the phrase used to describe the habit of buying stocks that are in "freefall", and is a poor strategy, albeit common among new investors. Sadly, it is a common practice even among old and experienced investors. I've even fallen prey to it myself.
