For Dianne in Oz, I too am a “newbie”. After reading Rich Dad Poor Dad I then obtained a copy of “The Cashflow Quadrant”. I suggest you do the same if you are serious about getting financially free.
I have been reading up on the topics that interest me and I have been scanning the newspapers for clues to where to find people who can be helpful teachers. This newsgroup and also the one at Cashflow.com can be of great benefit for a lot of people post different questions and helpful hints that you can graze through to assist you in the right direction. No one can tell you what to do. You have to discover it for yourself. I have found a local investment club to join and I keep my eye out for seminars that relate to my goals. Look out for more books on the topic of your choice and read and learn. Study and observation helps to give you brain food so that your subconscience comes up with some clear ideas for you. Become an observer and a listener before you jump in on anything. Make friends with people that may become mentors. I wish you all the best. Keep coming back to this newsgroup as I will be a regular and may have some good ideas at some time!
