Investing refers to accumulation of some kind of asset in hopes of getting a future return from it. There are several different ways you can invest your money. You can invest in a bond, which is exchanging money for a promise of more money in future. You could also invest in an capital investment, which is exchange of money by a business for an addition to their ability to produce. No matter what you decide to invest in, fundamentals are same. You are basically buying risk. more risk you take on, higher price you can sell it for. That's basically what all investing boils down to. As an investor you are really becoming a risk manger.

Fast Money: A Guide to Fast Secured LoansWritten by John Mussi
Here is a useful guide to fast secured loans. Sometimes it seems as though there's nothing you can do… you need money and you need it now, but you don't get paid for another week or more. You need to find a fast secured loan, but banks can sometimes take weeks to process your application and there's still no guarantee that you'll get money that you need. Luckily, there are other options available for fast secured loans.
Cash Advance and Cheque Cashing Cash advance stores and cheque cashing services are one of simplest forms of fast secured loans. You go in and fill out some paperwork, write them a cheque for amount of your loan plus their service charges, and walk out with either cash or a cheque that you can take to bank. You usually have two weeks to pay off loan, and may or may not be able to make partial payments. If you haven't paid your debt within appropriate timeframe, then they'll submit your cheque to bank for payment… and if you don't have money, cheque will bounce and you'll be looking at service fees from both cash advance store and your bank.
Title Loans A title loan is another form of fast secured loan, working much like cash advance store but with loan provider putting a lien against your car title (meaning that they have loaned you money, and therefore are considered to be legal owners of vehicle) instead of you writing a cheque. Title loans usually allow for greater amounts to be loaned, and in almost all cases you get to keep your car… down side is that if you don't pay loan back in time, then lender is able to repossess vehicle. If you don't pay them back after they've repossessed (as well as pay for repossession fees), then they're free to sell car in order to get their money. Title loans usually aren't recommended unless you have a dire need for money, and know that you'll be able to pay back loan before payments get out of hand or behind.
