Making money...

Alright, can we leave this thread to real ideas please? I know there are some threads like this already but I thought I would start a new one. Now as cool as it would be to make millions, that is not what I am saying. How do you guys make an extra 50-100K? I have a great job in medicine, but am concerned with the way health care is going. Each year we get cut more and more. I own some propery and invest in the market. I have started looking into options. Seems cool, but also hard. I bought my first option about five months ago. Shoulda sold the damn thing . Anyway, just wondering what you guys do.

haha, i think of myself as a stock. invest in yourself, buy assets and look for opportunities everyday and you'll be set to go. better be a bull market over this end.

I agree. Just wondering what other guys do outside of their real jobs. I am not looking to get rich quick. Would like to make some extra money though. I always like to pick other peoples brains to see what they do. I invest for the long term, own real estate, etc. More curious about the options market I guess. Anyway, thanks bro.

no limit hold'em...in all seriousness i know a couple of guys that make a few G's a week playing on the weekends. You just need to know when to stop if you're down.

Now is a good time to collect chips (real estate) since prices are low. Gotta have good credit and some cash down, but this is the way to go.

invest at least 25% of your gross salary and you will eventually be weathly at some point. Start reading stock option books, strategies, money management, and risk management books before you attempt to gamble at buying/selling options. Yes they give you more leverage than buying a share of stock but, it takes time to learn how to make consistent profits that outweigh your losses. If you want any recommendations for books let me know.(lots of bad investing/trading books, so don't listen to everything you read)

why real estate? you never really own your property if you have liabilities year in and out (taxes, maint, insurance). if you take those into account over a long period, you real rate of return is very little. buy stocks and start your own company. thats the way to go!
