What are the best investment opportunities with the highest return on investment? Where do i invest my money for high returns? Well if you are curious to find out, then read on.
Over the years of my life as an investor, one of the most popular questions i often receive is this: “What is the best investment opportunity for an investing beginner.” To be sincere with you, i don’t think there’s a definite answer to this question.
The real estate investors claim real estate is the best investment with the highest return on investment in the long run; while the stock traders argue in the favor of stocks because of its short pay back period. In fact, the truth is that there are so many investment products craving for attention. Some of the most popular are:
- High yield investments
- Mutual Funds
- Hedge Funds
- Real Estate
- Precious Metals
Now all the investment products listed above really yield good returns on investment. For instance, stock can yield a return of about 25% – 1000%, depending on the time frame and risk involved; same can be achieved with real estate. But of all the investment products mentioned above, which do you think yields the highest return on investment.
Well, you are free to hold your own opinion but what if I reveal an investment product that outperforms all other investments? Will you be willing to invest in it? Well, whether you will invest or not, I am going to reveal it.
The Best Investment Opportunities with the Highest Return on Investment
The best investment opportunity with the highest returns on investments is “Business Building.” Building a business from scratch is definitely the best investment opportunity ever; with the highest return on investment and i will tell you why.
“Wealth is only a benefit of the game of money. If you win, the money will be there.” – J. Paul Getty
Building a business is the exact way the ultra rich of this world made their money. People such as Bill Gates, Anita Roddick, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison and so many others became extremely rich simply by building a business. Building a Business was how Aliko Dangote and Oprah Winfrey became the richest black man and richest black woman in the world respectively.
“The richest people in the world build networks; everyone else is trained to look for work.” – Rich Dad
Do you know that playing the stock market did not make Warren Buffet and George Soros Rich? Building Berkshire Hathaway made Warren Buffett rich while George Soros rich by building Soros Quantum Fund. Yes, Warren Buffett bought a business and used the business as leverage to invest in the stock market and also acquire other companies. Do you know that building Facebook alone made Mark Zuckerberg the youngest self made billionaire in the world within a space of five years?
“There are fast ideas and slow ideas, just as there are fast trains and slow trains. When it comes to money, most people are on the slow train looking out the window watching the fast train pass them by. If you want to become rich quickly, your plan must include fast ideas.” – Rich Dad
Now what makes ‘building a business’ the best investment opportunity? The following are the reasons why I chose business building as the best investment opportunity with the highest returns on investment.
Why Building a Business is the Best Investment Opportunity with the Highest Return on Investment
1. Low initial investment capital
The initial start up for any business can be quite low with respect to its profit potential. You can start a business with anything you’ve got. In fact, there is no imposed or minimum small business startup requirement.
“Start small and dream big.” – Rich Dad
As a matter of fact, Bill Gates and Michael Dell started their business in the dormitory of their school. Google and Yahoo were also started in the Dorm while Amazon and Apple were started in the garage. I started my first business right from home. So number one goodie about building a business is the low entry capital.
“I started a business with nothing and my determination to make that business succeed made me drop out of college. Everybody thought I was crazy but the truth is; they can’t see what I see. I don’t need to convince them that I am on the right track, my bank account will.” – Ajaero Tony Martins
2. Moderate Risk involved
“Seek advice on risk from the wealthy who still take risks, not friends who dare nothing more than a football bet.” – J. Paul Getty
To be honest with you, building a business is the riskiest investment of all. Yet, i consider it an investment with the lowest risk because the risk can be curtailed if you really know what you are doing.
“Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.” – Warren Buffett
3. Impressive risk to reward ratio
Despite the fact that the risk is moderately low, the reward is very high. When compared to other investment products, the risk to reward ratio is quite impressive.
4. Absolute control of investment
As an investor in the stock market, i sincerely don’t consider stocks a solid investment and the reason is because you have no control over them. Yes you have control over its buying and selling but you can’t influence its performance; you can’t control the cash flow of the company you invested in and you have no say in its business operations except you are a major shareholder. You can only play by its rules; that’s if there’s any.
“The more a person seeks security, the more that person gives up control over his life.” – Rich Dad
The reason i am emphasizing this point is because control is very essential if you want to be financially free. The more control you have over your investments, the more you strengthen your financial fortress. That is why the rich build businesses, buy business, fight for control in publicly traded companies and hide their wealth in real estates and trusts. The keyword here is “Control“; never forget that.
“In order to be a player on the fast track, you will need to have a plan on how to gain more and more control. On the fast track of business and investing, it’s control more than money that counts.” – Rich Dad
5. Building a business is challenging, exciting and involving
“A business has to be involving, it has to be fun and it has to exercise your creative instincts.” – Richard Branson
“The biggest challenge you have is to challenge your own self doubt and your laziness. It is your self doubt and your laziness that defines and limit who you are.” – Rich Dad
Building a business is challenging, exciting and involving. Most people invest their time and expertise building someone else business in return for a paycheck. They avoid investing in their own business because they are afraid of the challenges involved and that’s why they will never be rich.
“And obviously from our own personal point of view, the principal challenge is a personal challenge.” – Richard Branson
“Without the element of uncertainty, the bringing off of even, the greatest business triumph would be dull, routine and eminently unsatisfying.” – J. Paul Getty
One thing i love about business challenges is that they make you the entrepreneur financially smarter and stronger; only if you are willing to face them head on.
“Once you have made it, you will understand that any business is limited in the challenges it offers. You will want and need other games to play, so you will look for other ventures to hold your interest.” – J. Paul Getty
6. Infinite returns on investments
“Being first is more important to me. I have so much money. Whatever money is, it’s just a method of keeping score now. I mean, I certainly don’t need more money.” – Larry Ellison
Lastly, the most important reason that makes building a business the best investment opportunity is the high return on investments. Sometimes, the ROI you receive from a business is unmatched by any other investment.
In conclusion, i want to state clearly the above opinion is entirely mine and should not be taken as an investment advice. The reason i say this is because i strongly believe that the best investment opportunity does not exist. The best investment for you might not be the best investment for me because of certain factors we can or can’t control. Example of such factors are capital, state of the economy, knowledge, financial IQ, geographical location, etc. As a final note, i leave you with the quote below:
“It does not take money to make money. All it takes is just a smart idea.” – Robert Kiyosaki
