    If you've ever faithfully watched a company go from small start-up to booming public success, you may have wondered if you could have gotten in on the action in the early stages, when you were one of just a few who knew it would do great things.

    More often than not, it's the angel investors that get in early — the wealthy, early-stage investors that bet on a start-up in exchange for ownership or convertible debt.

    For the average investor, this may not have seemed like an option. After all, in order to make a significant enough investment in the early stages, a decent sum of money is required. But, not always. Sometimes it can be as little as you contribute yearly to your Roth IRA

    Startup investing can be rewarding both financially and personally. By investing in a startup you are contributing to job creation and capital formation. The influence of entrepreneurs has shaped the U.S. since before its founding and the contribution with such innovation its absolutely immeasurable.

    Even though picking winners is not an easy game, making a home run by investing in startups means that the returns could yield between 5x to 100 times returns on the initial investment. However, it is crucial to conduct the appropriate due diligence on the business, market, competitive landscape and founding members to mitigate against risk.

    To put it in perspective:

    An investment of $1,000 in Facebook in 2005 would today be worth approximately $624,500; a 62,450% ROI. Check out WhoOwnsFaceBook.com

    $1,000 in Airbnb in 2009 would today be worth approximately $589,667

    So, if you ever thought you'd like to be an early stage investor without having to come up with the idea, run or manage the business and simply sit back and watch it's growth while your value goes up, then we need to talk

    How investors turned a few dollars into millions

    Barbara Corcoran: Here's How I Turned $1,000 Into $70 Million

    Barbara Corcoran held 22 different jobs before she got fed up with taking orders. So, she decided to be her own boss and started a real estate business called The Corcoran Group. Even though Corcoran had no experience whatsoever in real estate, she really did not want to work under anyone else's reign. "I didn't even care what I was going to do for a living," Corcoran tells us. "I just wanted to have my own thing." To get the business off the ground, Corcoran's boyfriend gave her $1,000 and she had to borrow a real estate license from a "shady attorney." Decades later, Barbara Corcoran would sell The Corcoran Group for $70 million.

    Kim Lavine

    started making microwavable pillows as gifts for her kids’ teachers in 2001, assembling them at her kitchen table in Grand Haven, Mich., using a corn kernel filling. Around the same time, her husband lost his job, prompting her to consider turning her pastime into a source of income.

    She went from selling pillows out of her truck to setting up mall kiosks and incorporating her company, Green Daisy, in 2002. Within two years, Lavine’s Wuvit pillow was in national chains, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s and Bed Bath & Beyond, and by 2006, it generated more than $1 million in sales.

    Sara Blakely Spanx

    Blakely joined local stationery company Danka, and began selling fax machines door-to-door.In the heat and humidity of Florida, she tried unsuccessfully to find pantyhose that didn't have seamed toes, and that didn't roll up the leg when she cut them. Investing her life-savings of $5,000 she  moved to Atlanta. In 2000 she launched the Spanx brand from her home, undertaking all initial calls and marketing herself across North America. The Spanx company and brand are now valued at more than $1 billion.

    Jill Blashack Strahan - Tastefully Simple

    Blashack Strahan started her gourmet food company with $6,000 in savings, a backyard shed for storage, and a pool table as a packing station.

    In her own words: “I remember sitting outside one day, thinking we were three months behind on our house payment, I had two employees I couldn't pay, and I ought to get a real job. But then I thought, No, this is your dream. Recommit and get to work.”

    She had the idea to sell at taste-testing parties, and sales began slowly picking up. In 12 years, Tastefully Simple has grown into a $120 million dollar business.

    The Friends Forum. Designed to create a friendly place

    to share and connect

    Let's face it. We are all "busy'. Careers, family, relationships, ex's, paying the bills, etc.. Ever notice how good you feel after venting – to a friend, to a therapist, even a stranger who was willing to listen? But, sometimes it's hard to be brave like when we were kids and would pretty much talk to anyone. Get brave! Let's take advantage of the group setting and get together for regularly scheduled, "friends forum". We'll take an hour or two to disconnect from the world (and phones) and get to know each other.
