Investing in Cars

Investing in Cars

Most people tend to think that if they buy a car, the value will drop over time. The value of the car will of course drop because it is a ‘product’ which will age and will be used, perhaps getting damaged. Most cars (classic cars not included) have a lifetime of about 15 to 30 years, after this period there is a huge chance that a car will not be worth anything at all. Now, this is true for most cars, but not for all.

New car market

In the last few decades, investing in cars has become more and more popular. For new cars, this is caused by the fact that some cars have an extremely high demand whilst the production is (very) limited. To demonstrate the sort of profits which have been made, I will provide a few examples of current listings.

Why you should start a business in college!

Why you should start a business in college!

Ever thought of starting your own company? Maybe after you are done with your masters or bachelor? However, you could also start that business in college already. There are a lot of advantages if you start your own business at a relatively young age. Of course, there are also downsides that come with beginning your own business now. In this article, we will go through the various (dis)advantages of starting your own business in college.

Risks and opportunities

Running a business in college is relatively risk-free. You do not own a lot right now, and the commitments you have are very few as well. Later you might want to start a family and having a family could hinder you taking risks and opportunities. Now, as a college student, you can still take those risk, without having to think about the consequences as much as in the future. The rewards for starting your company in college can also be very high, so overall, there are low risks and high rewards in starting a business right now.

Resources on campus

The second advantage, is that you can make use of resources at university. You can make use ofRead more »
