I'm due to come into a sizeable amount of money soon and am looking for ways to make it multiply from the comfort of my own home.Do any of you have experience of investments and stocks? How would I get started and how risky is it? Any software that could help and so on? What books should I read? Thanks.

Thanks.I will see if I can find that.I will probably set aside a certain sum as an experiment to see if I can make any money and see how that goes.I like the idea of investing in sustainable industries,which hopefully will be a growing market.

Yep, it's a really easy way of losing a lot of money in a short time.

IME, sustainable isn't a quick return.

Don't sink it all into investments right off. Put some aside to add when the market is on an upswing.

Some people have had better luck directly investing in start ups, either as venture capitalists or angel investors.
Get a mentor, for sure.

Go slow, diversify, stay rational and out of any gold rushes, there are a lot of shady figures out there, so don't be too trusting in internet forums, 'analysts', banks, the companies you are planning to invest in. One more, don't go all in, keep some cash, just in case.

I'm thinking of starting a small record label.A sure way to lose money but it'll be fun and the money won't last forever anyway.

Hi Ged,

 

I'm looking into building a Real hippie Disneyland. Sort of a Woodstock, Burningman, Love-in, Chochella, Renaissance Fair, Oregon Country Fair, type of thing with solid Classic Rock as a "Living History Museum". A part of this would involve land investment and development. Let me know if this sort of thing peaks your imagination. We could talk further.

 

After all, 2017 is the 50th anniversary of "The Summer of Love"

 

 

I also know a friend who had been the recording business in Hamburg.
