Im a scalper, I scalp trends. Give me 5 trends, at 20 pips, and my day is done.

I have a money managemnet plan, its a cycling routine.

Start with a small bankroll, grow and compound it for 2 trading weeks, $$9,100 in profit, withdrawl, repeat with the $500.

This business is amazing and exploding for me! It has all the qualities I was looking for in a business.
CHECK IT OUT by going to this link.

isn't that mlm type scam?
 Quoting: Ossiel


Scam.

OP, you need to start a REAL business, a LEGAL business, forget about dope dealing and stupid internet pyramid games and online trading and the like. I'd stay away from anything involving serving food, too, WAY too much paperwork/red tape/licensing headaches. Also anything requiring a ton of inventory, or a brick and mortar storefront or office are going to be way out of your budget as a start up.

There are lots of small service businesses you can start without a ton of money. It's also possible to start an online business with relatively little money, although you WOULD need to get quite a lot of knowledge before even considering that.

My son in law started a residential window washing business with guidance from the book I recommended earlier in this thread. He's not making millions but he's making what most would consider a good full time living and his business is only a little under a year old. That book is not just bunk or hype it is how to actually start a little business like that, find customers, etc. If I remember there were about 15 or 20 different businesses to choose from, and you could use the same model for others. I won't post the link again, too many idiots on this thread accusing me of shilling, but I promise you if you are serious about starting a small LEGAL, LEGIT business you can find what you are looking for in that book. Good luck to you.

with only 2000 you cant do much but... Take 1900.00 of it and spend a weekend buying specialty books at thrift stores... Karate, mountain climbing, archery, shooting, exotic pets, plants, survival books. etc.... Then open an AMAZON sellers account and list them all. (This could take weeks). Buyers pay for shipping you just need cardboard to wrap em in and take to Post office 2 times a week.

Good luck

its tuff call,

Could do little landscaping, clean-ups and lawn maintance, but you really need to think long term, then build the business from ground up, to a few crews.

Small yards, dirt cheap, fast, in and out.

But thats work,

Like I said, get into the Currency trading game, get good at it, and never look back.
 Quoting: WorldCraze


What do you recommend to get started in learning currency trading? Any training sites or books you like?

I'm tired of being chronically poor.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1301574


Do not get into FOREX until you know what the hell you are doing. It is not for the faint of heart and with novices you can almost rest assured that emotion will win you over and leave you broke.

Go learn about FOREX. Open an account (as long as they do not require funding). A lot of them have practice accounts where you can trade fake money based on real markets.

 Quoting: The Mad Ape


He is correct..

If there is big money to be made, its like that for a reason, and thats because, the ratio of winning, and not winning is very large, like 5% win at the forex BUSINESS..

Thats why I said, you need to spend many, many hours learning and watching charts, but if you do the proper things, everything works out ok..

When I first got in, I spent 18-20 hours a day, just watching charts, learning indicators, feeling the flow of the pair ( EURUSD ) im watching.

But, Im a stay at home dad, so I have the time. Plus, my wife understands the income that can be made, and the hole we are in, and a simple 9-5 JOB ( Just Over Broke ) isnt going to cut it. When you reach a age, and nothing is what you want it to be, the days become smaller and smaller as they go by. At this time, I dont have 5-10 years to dilly dally around, so I went right to the heart of the big money.

You dont need to buy expensive books, everything you need is right infront of you. Well, mostly everything. You have to have the balls, the patiance, and the WILL to make it happen.

This is no kids playground. You can lose everything in seconds if you dont know what your doing. Well, in a sense. In the Forex, you WANT to take positive steps each time, but one fuck up, can set you back, right where you started.

Its not easy, to say the least, but, just like anything in life, Continous Reps, and practice work in your favor. You WONT get better at anything, if you dont practice. Wheather its throwing a football, or glueing sticks in a straight line, its all the same. Trail and error, and building on the knowlegde you already obtained from the last attempt.

Its alot of work, but it pays off, and can pay off very fast.

If your serious about it, and treat it like a business, and have the time to put into LEARNING, you have your financial problems by the neck.

And talk about timing? The time is NOW, markets open in 5 hours, 20 minutes, get busy learning
 Quoting: WorldCraze


You're right about the days getting smaller and time no longer being a luxury.

Start a tent/canopy/table/chair/tablecloth rental business..start off small, one tent, ex..buy more stuff as you make money renting. One days rental could make you 500.00. I'm talking a 20x30, or 20x20 tent..you can put up alone, just takes a bit more time..do 2-3 jobs a week, slowly build repeat customers and buy inventory and hire teens to help..may need insurance eventually..great if u live in/near suburbia..use any truck with bed or rent truck to deliver..peace

Yes, DONT BE GREEDY, take what the market gives you. Get a daily routine down. Take it seriously.

Even while your at home, you need to think BUSINESS, When I enter my work area, its work time. Stop the surfing, stop the youtube watching, YOU NEED TO BE FOCUSED, just as if you were in a office, making $2000 a week, with a boss overlooking your actions, only, your the boss.

Put in 4 hours a day, doing something that will make your business better. Remember, we want to take a step further each and everyday, consistantly.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE YOUR MIND GEARED,

Failure starts within YOU, not the system, not the Government, YOU..

IF your not ready to make the change, the change wont happen.

The Biggest thing, IS TIME

You get out, what you put in, and your going to have to invest HOURS.

IF your wife or girlfriend is a naggy one, you need to make a choice, LOL, kinda serious on this one..

My wife understands what Im doing, She see's the money that can be made, she knows the lifestyle that can be achieved, she knows Im on the PC for a reason, and not just taking up time, Im putting in work. But once you have the knowledge, everything gets better. Just like in anything you do in life.

Check this out. You can purchase food products from here [link to www.5298.freefood2go.com] and sell it at your local flea market or farmers market. Just bring some already prepared in a crock pot and give away free samples. I sell 2 serving pouches for between $3.00 and $4.00 and my cost about $1.25. Wal-Mart sells a similar product for $6.00 for a two serving pouch. If you are interested in marketing to others you can get others to join the co-op and your food will cost you nothing!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1383306


This concept here works and you can make a couple hundred bucks working a few hours on the weekend. Nearly everyone who tries the product either buys some or joins the co-op. Be sure to have a lap top so you can sign people up on the spot or order larger quantities of the product for them..

I follow price action, and trends. I look for the spill, like I said, Take what the market gives you, and ride the wave. Then get out, and wait till it happens again..

I gather my info from differant time frames, and where the market has been. Its much easier when you have a general idea of where its going, and never bet against it.

its hard to find a great Forex forecaster, or everyone would be rich. It makes it all to easy. But thru time, it has shown, that they arent right, and its a basic assumtion of what MIGHT HAPPEN.

When I began my career in the Forex, my first objective, was to learn to forcast the the future, where do i think it will go.. Because, really, thats the most important part of the game. Then, you need to know how to use that information. IF you dont have any idea where your going, you wont have a defining first step.

I made everything harder on myself, because I didnt read books, or watch videos, or have a mentor. I taught myself by watching the charts, taking notes, and figuring everything out for myself.

WHY? Well, because look at the ratio of people getting rich, and people failing at the Forex, that tells you something right there, that there is garbage info out there, and the ones that are making the good money, stay in hiding, and dont share the real info, or want to charge mega bucks for the proper info.

I do my own forecasting, by using multiple indicators, and knowledge of what they mean, how they act, and their tendencies.

Good post.

Anything is easy to sell, especially if you believe in the product, and believe it can change the lives of the people seeing the ad.

If you believe, nothing should stand in your way, everyone becomes invisible to you, you hear no negatives, you dont care, you just care about getting this product in peoples hands, and KNOWING it will work.

Places offer free business cards, check into that, fliers on windsheilds, but target your ads. door fliers, REFERRALS

Dont be afraid,

Bingo! It's all about adding value and knowing you are bringing value to the buyer of your product or service.
So long as you are doing that, you will succeed.

All of these get rich quick schemes have the same flaw, they don't create value, so in the end they are just a scam.

The secret to success in any business is to provide a product or service that can provide the results that people want, and allow them to get them with minimal effort. If you can do this then it will be impossible to fail.

Speaking from experience, make sure it's something you love. There is nothing worse than being stuck in a job you hate except being stuck in a job you created and own and hate.

Be ready for long hours unless you can afford to hire help. If you hire help be sure you can trust them.
You also most likely won't be able to give yourself any paid vacation time. Don't feel well? Take a sick day with no pay.

Owning your own business has advantages, but also disadvantages. You do have a little more freedom system-wise, but you're tied down personally.

Insurance, if you're self-employed, is pretty much out of the budget when you first start out so do not get sick or hurt.

Also, you can't clock out, go home and forget it. It's always with you. A bad day at work takes on a new meaning if you own it.

If you love whatever it is, however, most of what I've mentioned won't be such a big deal so please choose something you won't mind sacrificing for and best of luck!hf

Open a meth lab with a few hundred and keep the rest. Just be careful buying the ephedrine, stores watch that shit now.

I read an article once of a gal who washed windows. Her equipment was a step ladder, bucket, big sponge, squeegee and a bottle of vinegar (leaves no streaks). She made a 6 figure income most years she wanted to as she had almost zero competition working the better neighborhoods.

I remember Phenommmmmm posting onhere how she started a bunch of businesses and sold most of them. Had her tennage sons involved too. I think one of them was washing windows for a local pizza joint & other places.

The secret to success in any business is to provide a product or service that can provide the results that people want, and allow them to get them with minimal effort. If you can do this then it will be impossible to fail.

So in that case you have to do needs analysis and market research, and you will need more than 2000 bucks before you even start.

BTW maybe it would be an idea to aquire some sort of training or certificate for that money or maybe a drivers license for smth special
