  • In Latin America one has to invent something to make money, it is not like the USA where one can just go work for a company, although the USA is changing fast in the direction of the Latin American experience.

    What are you good at?
    Well that’s the thing, I’m not sure yet what I’m good at in order to turn it into a business or such, that’s what I’ve been trying to figure out lately.
    For now I work online and am looking to get another online job because the one I am at right now will end June 30th. I’ve been asking about the savings account situation in this country and it turns out it’s nothing like the USA, where you can get a 10-12% average return, over here it’s like 2% at the most, which is nothing.
    I’ve been thinking about getting a teaching certification because it turns out that online teaching pays very well, that’s what I’m doing right now but I could make even more if I had a certification. 
    The other thing I’ve thought about is small scale farming but that’s also not that good over here, in the USA you could make more than $80,000 a year with micro farming because things sell for a whole lot more there, but here they don’t sell for much, so it would have to be something special that you know will sell for a lot over here and that people will actually buy.
    I’ve also thought about setting up a bakery because that actually can be a good business here, but I need to save up to get a good quality oven and other things.

  • Isn't the CCT great? That says it all, nothing else need be said.
    Yes, it does indeed concisely say it all: He should be constantly employed, avoid idleness, and support his family.

    Before you start a business, any business, you have to work for someone to learn the business thoroughly before you can go on your own. Find out what you are good at and go get a job with someone you can learn from. It is called the apprenticeship system. That is the way young men learned a profession before the "college business" lobby did away with it as a formal means of learning.

    Before you start a business, any business, you have to work for someone to learn the business thoroughly before you can go on your own. It costs you no money to work to learn. If you can pay for college, then you can work for $3 a day and get a free education as an apprentice in the occupation that you are good at. Do you understand the mindset? You are at least not having to pay for an education. Once you work in a real business as an apprentice you will learn the pitfalls, and maybe realize it was not for you and try something else. Maybe what will happen is that some customer likes the way you work and hires you to work for them and you end up in the business you were meant for. God works that way. The best thing is to get started on the street where people can find you.

    In the USA a savings account is paying like 1% since 2010 at least. Savings accounts have not paid over 3.5% since like 2002.

    Micro farming paying $80,000 is a fallacy, the fallacy  sells the books that teach that anyone can make $80,000 doing it.

  • I know that a lady who owned a clothes shop went to padre pio for confession. During the confession, padre pio made her promise to get rid of all trousers from her shop, he said she couldn't give them away she had to bin them.

    I guess owning a shop is alright as long as it sells stuff God likes.

    It's called spin farming, and there are videos of people that are already doing it. YouTube Curtis Stone.

    And I've seen several videos about getting returns of 10% a year average, but I don't remember if it was regular savings accounts specifically. Dave Ramsey talks about this all the time.

    What do you do for a living?

    Savings are what is left over to "play" with, that is, if you lose 50% of it in the stock market, it does  not affect your life. That is what I mean by play with.

    You are young, any "savings" you have, should go into a business of your own, or to buy a house to live in. But you can't go into business without first getting experience in that business without any risk to your money, by working for someone else who is in the business you want to get into. So your savings for now should go into a house you can live in.
