I'm looking to invest my tax return when it comes. I really could use a supplemental income to help pay bills in these tough times. I was thinking about the stock market but I'm a complete novice. A co-worker recommended Scottrade. Any advice for me? *edit* Edit to add, I'm not looking to get rich quick or quit my job. I just need something to help me pay my bills. Yes it would be nice to make enough to pay for school.
