It's A Low-Return World Now
Yes, it’s true … you will get a very low return on your money
if you're investing in bonds or CDs. Most of our readers, however,
are entrepreneurs and have a different motivation. Like you, they're
relying on their own efforts and abilities in their pursuit of
building a viable business. Such action is especially important
these days with the historically low investment yields.
conjunction with the building of your business, keep uppermost in
your mind the value of focusing on one of the most profitable types
of investments available — your bartering efforts. When you are
doing business through your trade exchange, you’re acquiring other
needed products and services at your low variable cost, which is one
of the most efficient ways to push ahead financially.
