My brother is basically always trying to make a fast buck so when he approached myself and others about an investment, I was hesitant to take him up on it! It seems that he is consistently getting connected with the wrong crowd or going along with some nutty scheme in order to make a profit faster than what would normally occur.
I have consistently been a believer in hard work plus saving to prepare myself for retirement plus I do not want to waste my cash on some get-rich-quick scheme.
He kept pestering myself and others to hear him out so I finally gave in and decided to go to dinner with him plus listen to his latest plan. I learned that he had been in touch with someone who was looking for investors in a current Venture that would pay sizable dividends in a very short amount of time. Like most other people, I am sure you have heard about the marijuana farms that are popping up all over the place. Apparently this guy had already received the land plus permits to start developing the farm that would create both recreational plus medical marijuana for retailers to purchase… He was saying that the farm was expected to be up plus running within the next several months plus they were looking for investors that would be willing to put up the amount of money 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 actually risk that amount of money if I was going to be able to get currency in return so I agreed to the risky investment. I am not planning on publicizing the fact that I have invested in a pot farm but if it is profitable you can bet I will be letting most people know about the investment.
