• It's "Buy Low-Sell High", Right?!? So Why Don't We?

    The Magnolia Pancake Haus

    We'll talk about the dangers of a volatile stock market. The difficulty in putting into practice "Buy Low-Sell High" and why your broker may not be the best person to help. Since there will be plates to work around, you may only want to bring a pad of paper for notes. If you bring your laptop, Ipad, etc..., I'll be glad to show you how to find stocks with dividends and track the history; after the presentation. You'll have plenty of time to ask questions; and they don't have to relate to the discussion. I'm here to help. This is for those who want to learn how to start investing. It's also for those who may already be investing, but want to learn more on how they might do it without brokers. You may think investing is too complex. It isn't. I can show you how simple it all is, if you'll just take a little time. If you can't make it, please contact me with any questions, or which days or evenings work best for you.

  • It's "Buy Low-Sell High", Right?!? So Why Don't We?

    Magnolia Pancake Haus

    We'll talk about "Buy Low-Sell High" and how you can invest to ignore the swings of the market. If you bring your laptop, Ipad, etc..., I'll be glad to show you some companies that pay dividends and have a history of increasing them! You'll have plenty of time to ask questions; even if they don't relate to the discussion. This is for those who want to start and how they might do it without a broker. (I'm not talking about trading--which is different.) It's not that hard. I can show you how simple it all is, if you'll just take a little time. If you can't make it, contact me with your questions, or let me know which days or evenings work best for you. Rob Saunders, MBA thinkclink

  • Join me at Northeast Lakeview College's Boozarfest this Saturday!

  • Reasonable Sharks... Until...

    Location visible to members

    $5.00

    The industry needs commissions and fees flowing through its gills to survive and pay for their vacations, kids' schools, and Very Large Event Centers. You should know who you are dealing with when you're looking for "good" information. Make sure you bring salt... sometimes pinches, other times mines when you listen to them. I'll show you the "Placebos" they get you to swallow. Once you gain the confidence, you'll ignore most of what's out there. Your antenna will be wired to pick up what it needs and filter out the noise. The industry needs money... Just not yours.

  • Opening An Investment Account and Choosing a Company

    Location visible to members

    $5.00

    The 2nd in the series. You've learned how to get information about a company, and now how do open an account? How much does it cost? Is there an app where there are no costs to you? Wait, you say, there are always fees and commissions! But, before you think it's a miracle there are some subtle pitfalls we all need to be aware of. Once you buy the first company, it's time to look for the second one. I give you a structure to help you build and save and learn as you go... Simply, steady. Just where have I been all of your life?!!!

  • Start With One

    The Moade Center

    $5.00

    So much is thrown at you it is virtually impossible to know where to start. (Perhaps by design) You can ignore most, if not all, of what you hear in the financial typhoon. You already know enough to start! It starts Thursday. There will be several Meetups through the end of this year. I want you to be ready to start the upcoming New Year no longer fearing the Stock Market. Bring your laptops! Rob Saunders thinkclink.com

  • Rise With Rob

    Habanero's Grill

    $5.00

    Good recommendation! Thanks, Kevin! Not your usual breakfast place, so there shouldn't be much competition for seating. Good food, very personable staff. But you're coming to see me, right?!? We'll start with the very basics, show you how much of a David (vs Goliath) you can be. In fact, you can ignore Goliath altogether! (you don't have to kill him) If you want a certain topic addressed please let me know. I'll include it in our discussion... and I mean for this to be a discussion! Please ask questions! I use to be in your shoes... if I wasn't in the business, I would've in the dark too! (Hint: it's by design) I'll demonstrate how to build slowly, so you understand what you're doing and why you're doing it. Invite as many people as you wish. I have a handout, which will give resources to look at and questions for YOU to answer. I hope you catch what I'm offering and get inspired to start in just a few weeks. The handout will cost $5.00. I'm here to answer your questions and help in any way I can. You'll see. It's much easier than you're thinking right now. Granted it's a challenge to think you can do this on your own, but you'll see it's perfectly understandable. Please RSVP so I can give Hector a heads up... hopefully he'll need to bring in more staff! Rob Saunders thinkclink.com

  • There Just Might Be A Robinhood! The Investing App That Changes Everything!

    Just from a comment an attendee made (Thanks Eddie!) I've researched the Robinhood program and it is as advertised. No commissions! For those of you who want to start investing, Robinhood just may be your best friend. I'll go over the "No Free Lunch" tradeoff you get with this, but you certainly won't be paying for services you didn't use or need. The seating will be limited to 15. Don't want anyone to feel lost. There will be a charge of $6.00 for the workbook, which will include a hypothetical portfolio you can shoot for. Hope to see you then! Rob Saunders
