    Say you had some savings 50-75k. How would you invest it, gradually, to see some steady returns?

    I had cancer and now it's time to start paying bills. Would like to at least cover the ridiculously high cost of my health insurance. I have some web dev experience.

    Any suggestions?

    I would keep your money where it is and ignore any private messages that may come your way.

    Read the forum and find ideas that you feel you could comfortably implement, there are some outstanding people on here who will help you succeed and pick you up when you are down. There are also plenty of others that will want a slice of your hard earned cash and give you nothing in return!!

    You do not need any significant amount of money to get started, just a few $$ for domain names and hosting and you're set to go.

    @Asif WILSON Khan got his reply in first, he is one of the trusted members on this site and will always give you decent advice. He will also find out if you are a bullshitter!!:D

    Appreciate everyone's replies. I know there's a lot of BS here. I won't be investing with any member. I'm looking for business ideas, what's profitable right now?

    Edit: maybe I should have posted this in the business advice thread?

    Some of that depends on your background in this industry, your comfort level of risk and your long term goals (whether you are looking to grow something or want something that will just be a cash cow).

    Back in the day I was involved in adult affiliate marketing, which I'd like to avoid. As I said, I have a lot of web dev experience. Need to cover some monthly expenses, but I'm not sure what the best markets are. Maybe I'll follow sturose's advice and spend the weekend reading through the forum.

    That is really good advice and @Asif WILSON Khan gave you some solid advice as well if you wanted to buy something that was a going operation as the guy he mentioned (he's an honest man even though he kicked my backside on a golf course once) and his company are the go to guys in the industry for that.

    If you have experience with building a website and shop id recommend finding a profitable product og alibaba.com Think of what might get popular around Black Friday & December. I run my own brand the entire year, but now that black friday and december is coming up i create more business for the sole purpose of earning a lot of money on those two months.

    I now have 3 ideas that will be finished by November that will sell great for those two months!

    It's just an idea but if you can find the right product and have the experience you might pull it off :)
