LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) is offering Introduction to Real Estate Investing once more with investing prodigy, Rodney Musto Jr. of Concord.
"He started investing in real estate at 20 years of age," says LRCC Academic Affairs Vice President, Tom Goulette of Belmont. "Now Rodney owns 24 units worth millions and he's 25 years old. Musto has been called the new 'Trump' by some of his investors."
Musto is half owner of Terrier Realtors and full owner of B&B Associates.
The four-day Real Estate Investing Workshop is being held on Tuesdays, October 1, 8, 15, and 22, from 6–8 p.m. The course will start by teaching the basics of real estate investing and continue into laws and regulations.
Goulette says "Cash flow concepts and how to apply them to real estate transactions will be covered. One does not need to have ever invested before or even own his or her own home. By the end of the course, participants will be able to invest in real estate with no money down," concludes Goulette.
The cost of this course is $200 and space is limited. For additional information on other workshop offerings at LRCC or to enroll, contact Lakes Region Community College at 524-3207.

LACONIA — Granite United Way and Laconia School District – Project Extra recently presented a new "Youth Leadership" program for Laconia students.
The program has been developed to provide positive, long lasting change within our local community through a previously untapped resource......our youth. The program supports young adults, ages 10 –20, in the implementation of a youth-created, youth-led project.
Each "team" that successfully launches a project will develop leadership, project management, entrepreneurial, community outreach, and communication skills. Team projects must be sustainable and benefit the community in some way; a completed business plan is an additional requirement.
Each team presents their project to a 3 -5 person community panel for approval to receive up to $1,000 per team for project start-up funds. Granite United Way has contributed $5,000, while Laconia's Project Extra has set aside $2,000 to support this effort.
Those who wish to participate as a mentor or on the community panel to approve projects can cpntact:
