Online PR News – 29-September-2012 – Calgary, Alberta – Are you eager to try making money by investing in companies, but still feeling a little hesitant about the risks? The key to building a successful investment strategy is self-education – you have to know what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. In his new book, Learn What’s Best When You Invest, business mogul James Timothy White, who started his first company at the age of 12 and became a millionaire by the age of 16, shares his secrets for developing a successful investment strategy. These aren’t the tired clichés that you may have heard from mass media outlets, but rather a new perspective on investing that may give an “aha!” moment on every page.
Did you ever wonder why the stock market is notorious for being risky? That’s because when most people think of the stock market, they think of public markets and investment in the kinds of companies that are traded on public stock exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange. White points out that not all companies are traded publicly – in fact, the most lucrative returns on investments are likely to come from investing in private companies (aka private equity). He explains the difference, and how to both find private companies in which to invest and how to educate you-self about whether a company is a good or a bad prospect for investing. He answers many of the private investor’s most commonly asked questions, including:
What is the difference between a public and a private company?
Once a company is private, does it stay private? (and vice versa)
What are the advantages and drawbacks of investing in a family-owned business?
What is an IPO (initial public offering)?
What does it mean if a private company has public debt?
Do private companies still have to disclose any information to the public? Do they have to make disclosure to potential investors?
Is it possible to get enough information from Google and the Internet to decide whether an investment is wise or whether it is risky?
What attributes should a wise investor look for in a company that he or she is considering investing in?
What are some red flags that an investor might need to look twice at a company before deciding to invest in it?
What is the Securities Act, and how does it affect investors and their choices?
No investment is good or bad for everyone – your choice of what to invest in and when to do it depends on your particular situation and what you are looking for in an investment. In Learn What’s Best When You Invest, White doesn’t tell you what you should do – he teaches you how to think for yourself about investments and how to prudently assess both your own financial situation and that of the enterprise in which you are considering investing. If you are new to investing, this book could be a valuable part of your education. If you are a seasoned investor, this book could give you a new perspective on private investing and provide you with insights that you may not have considered.
