As a little side venture into paper, I'd recommend Scotttrade, a solid one, with an easy to use site...

Anyone use an online trading site that they would recommend?  Thinking of etrade, scott trade, and td ameritrade.  Would like to get someone's thoughts on their experience.  Just a note. I am a pretty responsible investor, a saver first and foremost.  I currently have a roth IRA and contribute regularly.  I am single and having a trading account would be more of a hobby of interest than retirement plan.

Benjamin, also realize that you can get as much "education" from a combination of a library card and conversations with a few seasoned players in the business world as you can any overpriced MBA program...

 

I agree with the credit cards thought. If you do get one...emergency's only...trust me, you'll thank us...and pay all your bills on time, never late.

 

Also, remember this: If you can't touch an investment, it's prob not a good one...

Do your level best so that you can be accepted in a really excellent MBA program such as Wharton or Columbia.

Mr. Wansley:

1.  Do not get the creidt cards! 

2.  Be serious, but beware a curriculum that emphasizes a lot of strategic planning.  That's MBA-land.

Hey everyone, I'm going off to college soon and was just wondering if anyone had any advice for a soon to be business student.

How to negotiate a higher salary?

From my previous post, I mentioned that I am currently a temp for a corporation. This past week my boss said they want me in for a permanent position. It looks like I'll be getting hired as a permanent employee. I would greatly want a higher salary though. As a temp I'm getting $20/hr without the benefits. The employees who currently work there started off as temps. I asked around and they said their hourly rate went up when they became permanent employees.My question is, how reasonable of an…See More
