invest your tax return
Investing should be thought of as a long term financial commitment rather than something short term or “quick money.” It takes time to see a real profit from an investment, so patience is key. There are so many ways to invest your money, you just need to do the research to figure out which way is the best for you and your pockets.
- Real Estate
- Crypto currency
- Stock Market
- Mutual Funds
- Trust Funds
- Business Startups
- Peer to Peer Lending
- Life Insurance
One simple way to invest is Crowd Funding. You simply pick out an organization or person involved in a special project, and come together with other people (most often times they are strangers) to invest in their vision/project. You will most likely be a silent partner in this type of investment, meaning you don’t have a say in what the main owner(s) of the project actually does with your money. Before you decide to put your money into their project, do extensive research on it. Ask questions, research again, then ask more questions.
One company I plan to invest part of my tax return with is Tulsa Real Estate Fund. This company has raised more than $50 million and doesn’t plan to stop until they have reached their financial goals. Many celebrities have already taken a pledge to invest in this company and I will do the same. Tulsa Real Estate Fund focuses on investing money into urban communities by purchasing real estate and flipping them. Click the above link to read more about the company and check out their video below.
Updated 2/17/2021: After ongoing review of the Tulsa Real Estate Fund and the negative press against them, I have decided to no longer push forward with that company. I am in the process of trying to get the money I have invested into this company back. You can look up the negative press against this company on your own and determine if you would like to invest with them or not.
Invest, invest, invest! Your money….your legacy…your choice! Hopefully by now, you have had the chance to watch the video and check out the company’s website…seeing that this is the end of this blog post. It takes money to make money, and even if you have to budget to get to the point of investing, I truly encourage you to do so. However, we are talking about your tax return, so the money is already there. Don’t spend your tax return on meaningless objects, invest your money where it counts most!
