I sell cars. At very least I make $2000 a month, that's if don't sell anything at all. I can make up to $14k in one month but thats very uncommon. Since the income is rather unreliable, what the best way to make sure I'll have $40k by July. I'm looking for away to make extra money because the car business is a little unpredictable. So what should I do?
Need additional info, OP:
How long -in months- have you been selling cars?
What is the realistic "average" of your monthly gross income over 12 or 24 months?
What is your gross monthly "cost of living" average --by month-- for last 12 or 24 months?
I have similar situation as you and have survived income volatility with a little formula.
Pic related. My first car.
>passionate about game programming
>gaming industry is volatile af
>backup plan is software engineering/compsci
If I go alright as a game programmer and then it all goes to crap, would it be too hard to transition across to other coding-based jobs?
As long as you're not an idiot and are a good programmer, there are a ton of programming jobs out there.
I wish I could learn how to code, shit is so dope. I've taken a couple of classes but it just doesn't stick, so instead I started a business where I'm the boss of a bunch of programmers.

Is there a book you would recommend to a complete beginner that wants to get into stock market trading?
Have fun losing money.
If you want to actually invest, read this.
You don't need to read a book to trade. Just do your own research on industries and companies you already understand. You might be able to make abnormal returns some of the time.
As for what you should read and do, first post nails it.
If you try to use the market to get rich quick, you will get fucked. All books on "trading" tips are a scam.
Anybody else using this as an alternative to a savings account? This year wasn't bad. In previous years I've seen as much as 9%.
This year I'm going to actually start funneling money into it instead of just doing it as a hobby.

Which do you guys use and why?
>Should I be doing more than just contributing 10% of my paycheck?
If at all possible you should be contributing the IRS limit which is $18000 this year ($24000 if you are 50+), or as near to it as you can afford. Figure out what percentage of your salary that is and contribute that much.
I mistakenly posted this on /pol/ yesterday. Should've gone straight here. Effortless arbitrage opportunity. After taxes and commission, you'll still be making an amazing return.
Fuck off, 99% of you retards trade stock like its a bet anyways.
I'm in the US. I'm selling a classic car. Is it possible/legal to trade a car for stocks/bonds/private equity, if I find an interested party?
Im a former car dealer, and it may vary state by state but I think what you would do is IF your concerned with making sure uncle sam get's his part you can list the value of items you traded for as the cash price sold for and you will be set
What's the best way to market yourself in the workforce? What are the skill sets & credentials employers look for?
Is STEM just a meme?
I'm majoring in Stats and possibly Comp Sci right now and I'm afraid that Pajeet and Yang will take my job when I graduate in 2018.
Are you white? Are you not autistic? If yes to both questions, stay in comp sci but concentrate on networking. Stats is kind of a nebulous hard to market as a skill in the undergrad level. Learn econometrics if you want to do an applicable stats-based skill. In general you want to learn hard skills such as accounting or coding.
Post results and feel simoutaneously terrible and great about your financial situation
>>In 1 hour you make 7.46. Meanwhile, the average labourer in Zimbabwe makes just 0.97 in the same time.
>>You earn 14.322 in 1 year. It would take the average labourer in Ghana 48 years to earn the same amount.
>>Your monthly income could pay the monthly salaries of 34 doctors in Kyrgyzstan.
I want to move to the US to live there.

Do you guys think the college bubble will be the next to burst?
>Everyone should eat fruits
>OMG FRUITS BUBBLE SHORT ALL FRUIT RELATED COMPANIES
You're fucking retarded, there is no such thing as college bubble. Also everyone SHOULD own a home, it's personal finance 101 (read biz fundamentals: the richest man in babylon "make thy home a profitable investment").
There might be too much graduates in one domain or another, there might be a shortage in people qualified for manual labor such as plumbers and so on. But in this system you will never see companies hiring people just for the sake of hiring, a minimum number of degrees are required (being associate/BS/MS/Phd/MBA etc).
Now that 2015 is over, what were your stock results for the year?
Remember that if you made a profit, you beat the market.

You mean how the S&P500 lost out this year? That's not counting the dividend payments anon. If you held 100 shares of S&P500 from the start of 2015 to the end, you made money.
Is it commendable to reject nepotism from your father if I'm trying to enter the same field as him, or am I just arrogant like my family says I am?
Don't be an idiot. Leverage any connection you have to get what you want.
One man choosing not to use a family connection is not going to solve the issue of nepotism, and all you're doing is hurting yourself. for your own sense of pride. If pride is a big deal for you, though, then go for it.
I wish I had some nepotism I could bank on. When I got out of college my father's connections weren't worth shit. I'm currently doing manual labor.
My buddy on the other hand, his parents own a travel management company. He works like 30hrs a week, does fuck all, and gets $45k a year.
As the old saying goes, don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
