ATLANTA: Investment Advice for 2010 – March 27, 2010

Gwinnett Center, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The worst economy in decades followed by an incredible 60 percent bounce in the stock market has left investors wondering “What’s next?”

Will the economy rebound fully or fall back into recession? Will the stock market move forward, or retest recent lows? Should you play it safer in the stock market, or move more money into international waters?

Figuring out how to navigate the new world of investing has left many investors scratching their heads. What they need now is real information and real success stories, from companies and professionals they can trust.

How to Invest Your Money in 2010 is the latest educational seminar from Ilyce Glink’s Real World Seminars. This full-day event will cover topics such as:

  • Developing and investing for long-term and short-term goals, including retirement and your children’s college education;
  • Investing in the stock market, mutual funds, bonds, cash and cash equivalents;
  • Diversification and other investing strategies for different stages of life;
  • Financial planning tips and retirement income strategies;
  • Real estate investing;
  • How to protect yourself by buying the right insurance policies, including long-term care, disability, life, and umbrella;
  • Biggest mistakes investors make;
  • Tax consequences of investing and;
  • Estate planning (including trusts, Roth IRAs) – how to invest for the future and then pass it down.

These days, it isn’t enough to sock money away in a 401(k), 403(b) plan or Roth IRA. Instead, you have to think carefully about the tax implications of investing assets that are pre-tax versus after-tax, and whether you’ll do better by investing in no-load mutual funds or buying municipal bonds.

It’s tough to know what you’re investing in, and how to make a smart move. It’s also difficult to know whom to trust.

At Ilyce Glink’s How to Invest Your Money In 2010, attendees will have the opportunity to sit down face-to-face with the best local investment advisors, financial planners, and companies, and listen to trusted professionals share information instead of selling it from the stage.


How to Profit From Foreclosures

October 24, 2009

Nationally-syndicated columnist, bestselling real estate book author and Newstalk 750 WSB radio talk show host Ilyce Glink believes that the economy cannot truly recover until a floor forms under the real estate market. That means the excess numbers of homes for sale will have to be purchased by ready, willing, and able buyers – the sooner the better!

But how will this happen? Some of it will occur naturally, as first-time buyers take advantage of the $8,000 tax credit (due to expire November 30, 2009).

But with millions of foreclosed properties on the market (and more on the way), there will have to be investors who step up and purchase these properties, and figure out how to make them profitable.

In response to the copious numbers of requests we’ve received, this fall, Think Glink, Inc. will present our next public event: How to Profit from Foreclosures. With millions of foreclosed properties coming onto the market, you’ve been telling us that you want to know how to profitably buy, rent, and invest in these foreclosures. We plan to provide you not only with the answers to your questions, but a roadmap that will help you become the successful investors you’ve always wanted to be.

At our event, you’ll be able to hear from seasoned investors who are making amazing, low-cost investments into properties – and reaping sizeable rewards from the get-go. It sounds like Monopoly, and to a certain extent it is. But knowing where to look for these properties, how much to pay for them, and how to put the pieces of the deal together will determine whether you make money or lose big-time!

We want you to be a winner when it comes to real estate investing. So plan to join us this fall, as we introduce you to some phenomenally successful investors who will tell you their stories and share their secrets. We’ll also give you the opportunity to interact with top-notch real estate companies that can add substance to your foreclosure-purchase team. It’s hard to do it alone – and why should you? The best real estate investors know which real estate agents to trust, which accountants can help them with their numbers, which real estate lawyers can draft up the documents and seal the deal, and which home and property inspectors will give them a bird’s eye view at any problems that come down the line.

If you are a successful real estate investor, or a real estate company that wishes to discuss sponsorship of the event, please contact Ilyce.

And come back often. As we hammer out the details of the event, we’ll post them here and at
