To strategically, systematically, and effectively grow wealth: Continue reading
There are takers and there are leavers. There are also makers and deceivers. Take what you need – but leave enough for others. Continue reading
Gold may be valuable to store – but gold is not a store of value. Gold does have intrinsic properties that make it valuable – but gold does not have intrinsic value. Continue reading
Often considered the “poor man’s gold”, silver has been climbing the investment and demand charts since its discovery thousands of years ago in Anatolia, now modern day Turkey. Silver’s unique properties make it ideal for thousands of applications found in every day life. Continue reading
Time and money are often “measured” and “manipulated” but both are just “non-sense” ideas. Neither can be seen, heard, felt, smelt, tasted, or experienced in any other way with our physical senses – which is how we perceive and interact with the world outside of us. Ideas (and “memes”) may be “contagious” but mostly exist only within our minds and not outside of our imagination. Continue reading
A penny saved is a penny earned? Take care of your pennies and your dollars will take care of themselves? A (magic) penny that doubles it’s (“compounded“) value every day would very quickly be “worth” more than a million (paper) dollars. What do YOU think about pennies – and dollars?
Offering a penny for someone’s thoughts doesn’t usually make putting their two cents in “worth” doing (or a fair exchange of “value”). Even offering a dollar (coin) is not likely to change things much. Pennies used to be made out of copper (and nickels out of nickel). Today, they no longer are. Dollar coins were once big, heavy, and made out of silver. Today, dollar coins are golden in color and made mainly out of copper (and a little zinc, manganese, and nickel) – and are lighter than two quarters, four dimes, two nickels, four pennies, and an average car key.

Greece is the word – for things many people may not want to admit or talk about. Squeaky wheels may get grease to keep them quiet, but squeak or squawk too much about “money” in Greece (or Poland) and getting “greased” may mean (permanent) “liquidation”. Be especially wary of those whose principle interest is the interest on “their” principal. If you have the “foggiest” idea of what I’m talking about, be careful when, where, and with whom you fly….

All “ownership” is only temporary. It is also almost always never completely, nor even really, “owned”. Perhaps a better word (in addition to access, use, and control) might be (having) “custody”. Continue reading
“Ownership” is over-rated – and so is money. Access, use, and control are MUCH more “valuable” and important. It is usually better to “own” very little – but be able to “access”, “manage”, “control”, or have actual, physical, or virtual (temporary or “permanent”) custody of whatever is needed or desired (through properly “structuring” business and personal affairs, agreements, and ideas about “ownership”).
