Here’s an idea: study up on the certificates situation in counties near you. Read your state law, talk to people in the office that issues them, maybe study county statistics and records to see what happens. Then get other people to LOAN you the money to invest in certificates, with you promising them a rate of return which is less than you can get from the certificates. You get the rest of the return, gain experience, maybe even acquire a property, which would be a big payoff.
I emphasized “LOAN” you the money, as you do not want to get mixed up with transactions that the authorities would consider coming under securities laws. Maybe start with friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers, etc.
