Sam Tabar wants to help you become a better investor especially if you are new to the world of investment. He cautions people who want to get into commodity trading because there are some major risks involved. It is possible for commodities to behave in a volatile fashion. That means they can go up and down quickly. When you are new to investing you probably won’t have the tolerance to withstand this kind of financial pressure. It takes the ability to absorb losses patiently in order to win over the long term to be successful with commodities that is why Sam Tabar thinks the new investor should get involved with either mutual funds of social entrepreneurship.
Sam’s first foray into social entrepreneurship was both emotionally rewarding and profitable. He met the owners of a company called THINX through a mutual friend. They have the interesting idea of selling women’s underwear in a way that would also benefit the global community. There are places in Asia and Africa where some women cannot afford proper sanitary supplies. Whenever a pair of underwear is sold through THINX 7 sanitary cloth pads are sent to women in those 2 areas of the world to help improve their hygienic conditions. Sam Tabar finds this investment to be emotionally rewarding for several reasons, beyond the inspiration for his GoFundMe page. First, he has a direct relationship with the operators of the business where he can communicate with them and second he is doing good for other people while making money. This is in many ways an ideal investment and so Sam advises you to look for similar opportunities.
Sam Tabar has thoughts on mutual funds as well. He thinks they are safe bets and that if you are trying to save money for retirement down the line it would be a good idea to start investing today. Why let your money just sit there in the bank when it could be accumulating further value for you that will surely come in handy in the future.
