I'm a guy, from Latvia, 17.
I have a really difficult life situation right now, so I decided to join this forum for help earning money (obviously) and setting up a stable, high income more easily.
My plans right now are:
1. A job. (I hope to get a 500Ls one at April 21st., I'll get about 250Ls to save from that.)
2. Poker. (I'm talented.)
3. A bussiness, maybe something that hasn't been done in Latvia, like an attraction park or something fun and unique.
4. Writing a book and selling it. (That's as a hobby.)
-Trading Real Estate.
-The Stock Market. (Don't even know how that works, but I want to find out.)
-Internet bussinesses. (Multiple of them.)
-Anything that would bring me income by itself, even if really low.
I just have a few questions first:
What do you recommend for a beginner like me? (I barely know anything about cash stuff, even paying the taxes and stuff is oblivious to me, I have my parents to help me though.)
What books would you recommend? (Would reading biographies of people like Donald Trump and Steve Jobs be a good idea?)
What warnings would you give me before I do something? What mistakes have you made when starting your bussinesses etc.?
What about taking loans?
I REALLY REALLY appreciate the replies. Who knows, maybe this grows into something big one day and I can help you back? ;]
