Bro go find out more about the vending machine business..wont make your 100k become 200k overnight but the entry costs are reasonable, it's about automation and technology, also since u paint I assume u drive everyday, after work can go and collect change from the machines..u can purchase the machines at about 8k thereabouts for one..the other way is of course wait for the market to crash or correct than buy and hold some shares..companies like hanwell is doing a capital reduction exercise and paying about 20% in special distribution, of course distribute liao the price will fall back..dyodd
