The $500 challenge
I read an article the other day which talks about how to increase your income. Basically, take $500 of your salary and then think of ways to make that money grow.
Why $500? Well, that amount is substantial enough (a pair of really nice leather boots) to do something with and yet if the idea fails, it's not so substantial (5 pairs of good work shoes) that it will impact my lifestyle.
The first thing that came up to my mind was, to spend it buying shares. But this idea was quickly squashed with the realisation that I have no clue at all about dealing with shares.
So... what's my idea? I'll let you know once I have it all finalised. :)
