A quick and easy guide to investment

Investing is the single most effective way to get rich. By opening an investment account, you have access to the biggest money-making vehicle in the history of the world: the stock market. 

But a lot of you believe you have to do some complex, fancy work to invest… or that you have to have a lot of money to make the most of investing.

I’m going to show you exactly how to negotiate your rent so you can put a couple thousand dollars — or more — in your pocket this year.

Most people don’t think negotiating their rent can save them much money — or that it’s even possible! But look at the results for two of my students:

“When I went to ask for a rent reduction, the office kept on insisting that I was already paying ‘market rate.’  I let them know that I was serious on leaving if they didn’t give me a lower rate … They agreed to give me a rate of $1,435 which is $150 off my previous rent!  With a 12-month lease, that is a savings of $1800!” – Sharon C.

“My lease renewal was coming up and the rates around where I live were going up at a phenomenal rate too … I wanted
