Your Investor Profile is Unique to YOU! 


This chart is the map to determining your Investor Profile.


Start at the left and answer the questions to determine what investing strategies are best suited to your time and resources.



If the answer is “Yes” to having available capital, follow across the top of the chart to determine which investing stream is best suited to you.


If you answered “No” to having at least $25,000 in available capital, then you will have to invest your time and skill as a working partner in a joint venture.


If you don’t have money or time available, can you qualify for financing? If so, you may be able to be a qualifying partner in a joint venture.
