Hmm, a question often asked. My advice for lazy people would be to become a professional gambler. You work when you want and you earn as much as you want. Despite what people say, if you have great knowledge on a particular market it is very easy to mkae vast sums of money, there are many professional gamblers earning millions a year betting off the net.

Otherwise it would have to be a business. To be sucessful in business you have to be flexible. The most profitable companies over the year have been 'jobbers', which in other words do anything in their capabilities. Businesses with specialisations like Aeronautical engineering for example fall short when times are hard but 'jobbers' just change their output adn still make profit.

The view from my house is terraced houses yet its so expensive. I think its because its so near the city centre (4 miles) and has great public transport, an great local shopping cente, good schools, 10 mins to the trafford centre, 15 minute walk to the countryside. Its also very quiet and relaxing, there is never any trouble in the bars or pubs its just so liberal. Its mainly graduates that live here as well which really push up the prices.

However scenicaly its not nice at all. My parents 3 bed terrace is worth around £160k but thats because it needs a lot of work doing to it.

Oh Kurdt you do flatter me

Hehe, nah I think it would really work. At least the first one!

I do feel good about myself about not getting with that Ashley bloke thing, apparently he's totally used to getting his end away wherever he can and I'm the first girl that's ever told him where to go (Well I just pretended to fall asleep).

He's like a rally driver or something as well and I don't think I could cope with that driving. Plus he drink drives...which is so not cool

I can't stand people who simply say 'invest in the stock market, and you'll be rich'. There is a higher element of risk, plus you would need quite a bit of capital to make real money, once you've paid all the administration costs, stockbrokers, etc. you won't have that much if you only invested a little.

Yeah I know thats exactly why I have not bought any shares as it would be pointless buying £200 worth.

One thing that is always good is a funeral home, it's not as if people are gonna stop dying. Not to mention set it up in a place inhabited entirely by old and sick people like....Rustington. And then put up a thing saying "Your first funeral half price"

they'll be like flys to a ...ermmm....carcass...'scuse the pun

The problem is such people have no idea about the stock market and lose money. The people who make money on the stock market are mostly stockbrokers. They get first hand information, quicker than anybody else about how the market is going to go. By going on the net during work before companies get wind of this information and putting vast sums of their own money on a prediction is how stockbrokers become so damn rich. My friends dad gets 60k basic but his earnings will be in the millions probably.

An advantage of investing in an Index Tracker is that the fund will never perform worse than the stock market, the disadvantage being it will continue to follow the market when it goes down as it is not managed by a fund manager.

the likelyhood for it to go down in the long run is very small

Not neccessarily. Consumer confidence is ever changing, I mean 9-11, a recession, and most recently though not as much, the train bomb.
