<<So, I am not an expert on how to make a zillion bucks -- obviously, since I still have a day job and not as a CEO of some mega corporation either. But I can think my way through numbers pretty well, and I am not a sucker for quick fixes. I've been thinking about finding a way to give something back, and one way that might work is to give some help to people who are struggling financially. Chatting on a message board gives some help, but I would like to do something a little more local that might involve actually, you know, shaking someone's hand.

Ummm. I would suppose that face to face contact with financially desperate people is going to involve them begging you for money, one way or another.

Personally, I prefer to stay AWAY from desperate people. They can be dangerous, and just contact with them can tend to blight your life.
