One of my sisters is thinking about moving here, she has around 200k to invest.

I know it's a pretty open ended question but what do you guys think is the best way to use the money? She wants to start a business or something :dunno:

Spoiled brat who now wants to do something on her own :hmm:

She's done a bit of real estate but besides that, not much.

Is she cute? Have her go find a rich guy and leach off him. You know that's what she'll be doing anyway in a few years, so she might as well get started now :rofl:

Seriously, have her look into getting a position in an area she knows, such as real estate sales, mortgage, escrow...whatever. Once she works and she learns the business, THEN she could look into going off on her own. Don't let her be the new startup that closes down in 2 years.

Btw, post a pic ;)

Then the best thing for her is to come out here on a vacation and see for herself the opportunities she has. She'll get a clear idea of the businesses, the areas, and will give us a chance to see her too :D

I wasn't meaning for her to work because of the money, but rather to get a feel of the business before committing to it.

She wants to but i keep telling her to wait. She'll bring her kids which is nice and all but they'd stay with me....that wouldn't work out, fuck that :D

Keep the funds liquid, until she decides what to do.

If she is a non US citizen or nra she should consider short term treasuries as they are not subject to withholdings.

Flexibility is key since there are unknown factors at play.
