Famed Investor Sam Tabar’s 2015 Investment Recommendations

Famed lawyer, investor and businessman Sam Tabar is out with his 2015 recommendations which have been profiled on a report by CNBC. While he provides some traditional advice, he also gave a few out of the box ideas to make this year the best yet for investors.

Firstly, Tabar recommends that novice or amateur investors stick to what they know best and invest in diversified, stock market or mutual fund investments. Diversification tends to provide more consistent, stable and positive returns over time. A broad swath of the market including cyclical and non-cyclical firms

On the other hand, Tabar advises to keep out of commodity markets if you are not an expert. While oil, gas, gold and other commodities are in the news, they are not to be played by most retail investors. These products are extremely volatile and can quickly erase a sizable investment. While volatile commodities provide the potential for huge gains in a short period of time, odds are that an investor without the appropriate education, market expertise or in-depth knowledge will not be able to capitalize on these potential gains.

Tabar also recommends investing in the growing world of socially conscious enterprises. He personally invested in a socially conscious private company called THINX which is a women’s undergarment manufacturer that also donates sanitary cloth pads to supply needy young women in Africa.

While private enterprise investing may be a little more risky, it can provide alternative psychological and moral benefits to the investor. In addition, social investments continue to grow with more companies taking in more funding, providing a bright future for the industry. Entrepreneurs continue to innovate in the social enterprise space, with more people leverage new technologies and the internet to provide ground breaking solutions.

Think Free! Think FreedomPop!

What do people look for when they buy a phone? They want good service and most of the time they prefer having wireless internet. But if funds are low, it’s hard to find a provider that carries what you want or need. Now there is. Introducing FreedomPop: which has received numerous press from tech industry giants TechCrunch, Engadget and CNET have described as the next big thing.

FreedomPop is a free wireless internet and mobile phone service provider based in Los Angeles, California. It is the first wireless internet provider committed to delivering 100% free 4G mobile broadband internet access. Not only does it provide phones but also tablets and other broadband devices.

When FreedomPop first started, they wanted to keep prices down so they sold refurbished handsets from third party manufacturers. Soon after the customer demand was more than the second hand devices they had available. So they decided to build their own. Once they had their own products, business began picking up even more.

FreedomPop offers more than just free wireless internet service. They also offer the Freedom Spot hotspot for when you’re at home or on the go. Along with that, they have the USB device that helps you get instant 4G internet access.

Another perk they have added is 100 minutes of free international calling. And the best part is it is offered to customers who don’t even have FreedomPop as their carrier. And FreedomPop extends beyond that. They offer a plan that includes 500 MB of data, 200 minutes of voice calls, and 500 texts at no charge. With using FreedomPop, you could save up to $1,000 each year off your phone bills.

FreedomPop offers “like-new” refurbished iPhone 5 handsets for $349 or customers can even bring in their own compatible iPhones. Also, FreedomPop plans on offering more capable Android devices than the Galaxy SII and the HTC Evo 4G models. Additionally, there is an app on the iPhones that has free voice, texting and voicemail to compliment the existing one for Android devices.

The men who started to company know that everyone needs a way to communicate with friends, family, and others. Even if it’s across the country. They know that even if it is a refurbished phone, it’s still a phone and it’s gets great service with what they provide. They want everyone to have access to affordable, convenient, and essential communication services.
