Out of college, entry level position so I'm not making much. I am tucking $600 away a month into a savings account but I was wondering if there is a way I could increase my returns by doing something active with my money. I do not mind taking risks or spending a couple of hours a day before/after work to manage the money. I'm not trying to do this so that I can "ball on the weekends" but simply to have a larger safety net and potentially be able to start a business in a few years. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you in advance! P.S: I've purchased a few books: "Personal Finance for Dummies", "Investing for Dummies", and "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" all of which I have just started to read. Are these good books to follow?
