Real Estate Tips:
Keep in mind that there are investment opportunities past just traditional stocks and bonds. Commodities are an asset class with both risks and rewards but can provide hedges against inflation. Also look at real estate income trusts to invest into the real estate market without being tied to individual pieces of property. Sometimes the best investment is your own venture. If you are not comfortable with the world of finance and big spenders, then invest in something like real estate that you can improve and resell. This is especially wise if you have skills that are needed to improve a property to increase it's resale value.

    1. Not the worst video I've seen on YouTube, but pretty bad. It looks like it was made with Windows Movie Maker, the voice is so robotic it might have come from a VIC 20, and a lot of the pictures don't line up with the narration.

    2. Awl the flowuhs in Louisianer. But there was no mention of touring the Cajun country area of Acadiana in south central Louisiana? That’s not right.
