    I want to ask you, how to be an investor? I do not have any expertise that extends to being an investor only.

    You also need to know that there are various modes of investment and what is it that you are comfortable with. If stock market is something you are thinking about then you should talk to a broker about it.

    Yes I have, but not much, just about $50,000. What is a good investment at this time?

    There is an old adage that goes for these things. "Don't lay all your eggs in one basket." So is the case with investments as well. You should diversify your investment in various mediums. You can consider debt, equity and bonds. You can invent some amount in low risk funds as well.

    What country are you based in Fransisca2? Do you want to invest in things like stocks and bonds, or is your preference for investing directly in a smaller business?

    Invest in LiquidServe! JK

    Probably you should go and check out Kickstarter, there they have some really cool projects and then you can invest in the ones you like and later when they complete it you get something depending upon what amount of money you invested! ;)

    Somebody get the LEAP controller for free ;)

    There are several good investment choices such as buying an existing business, franchise, business project, business ideas and new innovative product. All that depends is the capital and the knowledge that you have.

    stocks are a dangerous game as you need to study the markets and know what exactly is going to win in the long run.....my simple advice is to look to invest in businesses and do not hedge all your funds into the same company or same place... just check the peer to peer market ...where you are guaranteed returns on investments.....which can grow depending on the business in question...

    best of luck in your investments....

    I would suggest you invest in something you know or your skilled at. If you want to try something else, have basic knowledge about that particular work. When you invest in something you have no idea and the reason behind investing is just seeing the profit then you might end up in loss.

    You can invest it to the stock market. Be sure of the company you are investing to assured your money. Don't spend your money only on one company so that if that company will be bankrupt, you have other money.
