It is a good idea to always have your money "working for you." This means the funds are gaining interest and increasing the value of your financial status. However, there are some ways to increase money faster than others, such as with the stock market. The down side is the faster the money may grow, the easier it is to lose all of the money during the investment process.
Invest your money in the stock market. There are many websites and television programs that "specialize" in telling viewers and readers what stocks to purchase at the right time. Although it is incredibly difficult to forecast the stock market, if done correctly it is possible to greatly increase the value of the invested money in just a short period of time.
Invest in an upcoming movie. If you have a large sum of money you may earn a great deal of the money back, as long as the movie is successful. When investing in a movie, you purchase a percentage of the picture. You earn the same percentage back from the gross of the picture, so if you paid 1 million dollars to invest in a movie and purchased 10 percent of the film (obviously a low budget picture) and the movie goes on to earn 200 million dollars, you may receive up to 20 million dollars for your 1 million dollar investment.
Invest in a CD or high yielding interest account. This is the best way to have a secure investment but still increase the value of your money. Most accounts have around a five percent interest rate, giving you five cents on every dollar you invest, each and every month.
