Buy a property, spend a bit doing it up and, voila - property market is reportedly picking up now!

Buy gold and silver at bullion prices...or ETF's.....maybe only R800 000.00 in 6 months...classed as a collection could be tax free!:)

Open a proper fish and chip shop in Grahamstown and you'll get excellent returns! Don't know why we have three KFC's, a Nando's which opens and closes, but no fish shop franchisees here! It's a great place to live and good turnover with all the students around and, during the Festival end of June/beginning of July each year, even greater rewards. When you've made your profit over 6 months then you can sell and recoup even more of your capital. :P

Explain this one Southerns. Is there a shortage of Postnet/Internet Cafe in your area?

Hello All,

 

Thank you all for your input:)

 

@Lily I will consider your house idea on my next venture, the fish and chips shop is also a good idea but requires a lot of time..

 

@Southerns....LOL

 

I might be going to China in the next few months to import some "GREEN" alternatives.

I'm guessing he means you should make copies of your money

Unfortunately most things which bring rewards require a lot of time! Look how much time we spend on BoB ... lol :)

@ Lily

 

It is not the amount of time that bothers me but the flexibility of time that does. I can be on BoB any time of the day or night but the fish and chips shop will have set times of say 09:00 to 20:00 for example. I don't mind the hours but I work for a company from 06:30 to 15:30 as well during the week.

 

@ Wayjen it is a pity yes....

There is only two places that you will be able to realise the type of return you want, in the time-frame that you want with the amount of effort (available time) that you have available.

 

The first is the stock-exchange - It is a fairly low entry-cost and simple way of realising an above average return on your investment, whilst keeping most of your capital easily accessible (as opposed to bricks, mortar, stock, etc. that cannot easily be turned back into cash) Provided that you have a certain knowledge, like trading techniques, setting up and hedge portfolio risk, identify trends, etc. If you do not have these skills, it can easily be acquired, as well as the necessary tools to assist you. People are scared - and rightly so - to venture into this, because of the broader public's inbred fear of the unknown - but like any other skill in life, it can be mastered. Just one caution though - treat it like the ocean, with the greatest respect and never let your guard down.

 

The other of course is at the casino;-)

 

Which let's me think of a story - in the 70's when the casinos just started in the homelands, my father's youngest brother dragged the whole lot of us to Sun City and after listening to my dad's lecture on the evils of gambling, had this to say - "you put your money in the ground by sowing hectare upon hectare

mealies and beans, not knowing if a single one will germinate, or that there will be enough rain, or knowing what the selling price will be - but you call me a gambler!"

 

So, if you are not prepared to take risks, keep the money - unfortunately, over time, you will still lose as a result of inflation.

 

Good luck with your decision making - for there you stand alone.
