Do any of you invest for your business? I know we invest time and money in our equipment and customer base but Im talking about stocks, bonds, and savings. I have a second job with a 401k and retirement. The retirements not worth much but the 401k has performed very good over the last five years. Well this got me to thinking when I decide to retire or sell my lawn service I would like to have more than just what the equipment and accounts would sell for. So about two years ago I opened a mutual fund for the business. I had to invest $1500.00 and agree to have at least $100.00 a month go into a automatic bank draft. Things went so good I have raised my monthly bank drafts three times. This is not an IRA so if you need the money its yours and you can get it with no problems. You do have to pay tax on your dividends but hey its income! Just wondering how others handled this side of our business.
