Most people are aware of the fact that one of the absolute best things you can do in life is figure out a
way to make your money work for you; after all, most people who make a long commute to work each
day and work 40 hours a week are not doing this because they love what they do, but are instead doing
this out of necessity - but those who find a way to make their money work for them are instead able to
enjoy passive income while also doing the things they enjoy! At the same time, however, knowing that
this would be a good thing and actually knowing how to make your money work for you are two
different things altogether - and for this reason, it is beneficial to understand a few approaches you can
try to investing.
The most common approach people take in order to make their money work for them, of course, is to
invest in the stock market, and the great news about the stock market is that you can reasonably expect
to increase your money by about 10% each year; at the same time, however, the risk that comes with
the stock market often makes a 10% return seem quite minimal.
If you are hoping to find an opportunity to create an annual return much higher than 10% (think
upwards of 50%), one thing worth looking at is flipping houses - which, of course, entails buying houses
at a reduced cost, fixing them up, and selling them again; while you can make great profit in this way,
however, you can also lose a great deal of money attempting to flip houses, especially with the current
state of both the housing market and the economy!
And finally, there is the approach to making your money work for you that will both protect your money
from big losses, and will give you the opportunity to achieve big gains - and that is to go with real estate,
but to stick with rentals instead of trying to flip houses. In fact, real estate rentals are pretty much
recession-proof, as those who are no longer able to afford a house of their own will still need a place to
live - and real estate rentals enables you to step in and fill this need for them!
