I would advise you to reconsider your plans. There is no easy way to make money and any forum or seminar that claims to provide one is just looking to steal your money.

I believe that investing is a way to increase your assets, but it is a long term plan and not something you should risk your livelihood on, because there is definitely risk involved.

Here at the Fool we look for investments that we want to be with for years and years. As can be seen from our scorecard, we won't always stick with a position for years, and not all our picks will be winners, but the long-term, diversified approach to investing ensures we aren't wiped out by gamble. Additionally, over the course of 5, 10, 20 years, our assets will grow to provide us a time of relaxation as we move into our twilight years.

But this isn't a get rich quick scheme. I it a research, research, research, invest, watch, research, wait, watch, eat a sandwich, research, realize I've got a healthy nest egg built up after years of disciplined investing scheme.
