My brother is always trying to make a fast buck so when he approached me about an investment opportunity I was hesitant to take him up on it. It seems that he is always getting connected with the wrong type of people or going along with some crazy scheme in order to make a profit faster than would normally happen. I’ve always been a believer in hard work and diligent saving to prepare myself for retirement and I don’t want to waste my hard-earned dollars on some get-rich-quick scheme. He kept pestering me to hear him out so I finally agreed to go to dinner with him and listen to his latest plan. Apparently he had been in touch with someone who was looking for investors in a new Venture that would pay large dividends in a very short amount of time. Like everyone else, I am sure you have heard about the marijuana farms that are popping up across the nation. Apparently this person had already acquired the land and permits to start developing the farm that would produce both recreational and medical marijuana for retailers to purchase. Expect to the farm to be up and running within the next three months and they were looking for investors that would be willing to put up the capital needed to set the operation in motion. They were offering not only dividend returns but a stake in the company for those who are willing to put up a minimum of $5,000. I felt that I could risk of these that much if I was going to be able to get money in return so I agreed to the investment. I don’t think I’m going to be publicizing the fact that I am part owner in a pot farm anytime soon but if it is profitable you can bet I will be letting everyone know.
