Equity Crowdfunding – A New Source of Passive Income?

    Private Equity has been around for a long time. An individual or firm provides money in order to get a business venture started. In turn, the investors own equity in the company and get a share of the profits. Crowdfunding has been getting very popular over the last few years especially on sites like KickStarter. People post ideas or things they need money for and people from all over the world can donate to the cause if you will. Sometimes it is just fun to read the posts on that site. I have seen anything from raising money to create movies, to some guy waning to make potato salad! The difference however, is these individuals simply donate money and do not get anything out of it afterward depending on what the kick start entails.

Reverse mortgages are becoming more popular because they provide senior citizens with cash that they can use to fund their retirements. These mortgages are based on the equity in the home and do not need to be paid back until the loan holder dies or moves out the house.

 

Even so, you may wonder what other options you have to use your home as an asset to secure your retirement. You may get the money you need to live comfortably by using any of these alternatives to a reverse mortgage.

Update to Expense Tracker

    Last month, I added a new spreadsheet section to the blog.  One spreadsheet is the Expense Tracker. If you followed my last post about it, it measures your expenses against income giving you dollar figures to see where your money is spent. It deducts taxes also to predict what you will have left over at year end.  This week I made a few modifications to this spreadsheet.

Why Now Is The Best Time To Be An Investor

I have been investing for a few years now and following the market for longer. During this time I have seen a lot. Both bull and bear markets, full sectors rising and falling, stock splits, dividend increases or decreases, new IPOs, mergers and acquisitions, just to name a few. While this is all normal for the market, the question remains. Why do I believe this is the best time to be an investor?

Introducing Spreadsheets

Spreadsheets

 

I have had a few people come to me recently who are interested in investing. After doing some of their own research, they became dazed with dividends (See what I did there?).
