    I never understand the "I have $X and I need to invest it... like NOW!"

    There's nothing wrong with cash laying around earning 5% and being an option on opportunity.

    They probably can't get 5% either.

    This implies that you are investing money and getting 5% interest, but is the money also highly liquid? The truth is that there are no options at the moment to invest money and get those options without any risk - at least not in my country.

    Sooo.... What does one invest in to get a nice little 5% cash flow?

    I'm looking for ideas for (reasonably) safe monthly income after making my initial bank. I've got about $500k I'd like to stick in something which will last for an eternity and save the rest to keep building my business. Cash flow is the key phrase here.

    Of course I have ideas and I will keep investing and turning a profit accordingly if those play out to be the best option. I am emotionally detached from this money and I will be as active as I need be if the ROI is right. Basically what I was getting at was that a lot in life people sit back and go " I know if I had enough money to buy/invest in ______, I KNOW I could flip/turn/make a good profit".

    My choice would be to invest it in a content publishing model (building websites, posting content, and monetizing with ads/affiliates) because this is something that i have experimented with in the past, and i had success, and i know i can at least find some good opportunities and have enough good domain knowledge to know that it can turn into something passive.

    Elif, what is your background and experience on personal finances because your answers do not make any sense at all.

    The account is a bot, or maybe an Indian VA, that just copy and pastes previous posts or relevant blog articles.

    Not sure why it hasn't been banned yet.

    EDIT: It's banned.

    Silver. (I think gold is over valued), there are even Australian/Singapore Companies now that store your allocation in the mint/reserves and issue you a card backed by toir allocation. You spend on your card, they sell to the mint to repay your bill.

    So it's as liquid as a card, while having inflation hedge/returns of precious metals.

    The way things are going you could probably bankroll a few ICOs generate a few millions. It's a hell of a gamble but that's why it's 15000%+ ROI
