Hello everyone, this is my first day on this forum, as everybody else on here I'm looking for somebody who can help me with what I would say its a small lesson on investing. I'm 21 years old and I recently came into a small fortune of around $60,000 and I want to invest it wisely, I've been doing a lot of research on the internet about buying a business but I want to hear somebodys personal advice (with experience) than just read articles after articles. I'm planning on consulting with a broker but i want to learn as much as I can before stepping into somebodys office who might try to take me for a fool. Also, I think it would be a lot easier to understand these businesses listings if I had a simplified grasp on the terms such as gross income, cash flow, EBITDA, Inventory,etc.... I tihink the main point is to see the amount you're investing and the amount of the "profit" as well as how long it takes to make it that investment back. I want an idea of whats a good "profit" prospect when investing $60,000. I'm thanking in advance anybody who can tackle all these question.
