In the old days…you know, when your parents had to walk 10 miles to school, in snow, uphill-both ways…young people were more knowledgeable about what it took to be self-sufficient and address their everyday needs, because they learned lifeskills. What are life skills? Cooking, cleaning, washing, car repair, childcare and money management are a few. Over the years, many young people have become distanced from lifeskills, because of lifestyle changes and the fact that home economics and auto shop have fallen away from the school curriculum. They are distanced to the point that they are clueless, when they are finally on their own.
It certainly was not a suitable investment for a young person with his whole life in front of him, in my view. Gold does not amuse children or cure dread diseases. You can’t eat it. You can’t wear it, except ornamentally. It costs money to store, and it does not even pay interest. People who covet gold are afraid of all the bad things that can happen to them. I wanted my thoughtful, business-minded relative to approach the world with an open mind and open arms, looking ahead to all the good things that could be built in his lifetime. Imagine if, amid the economic darkness of the 1970s, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak had decided to buy a few Krugerrands rather than some electronics parts.
The majority of my clients are uneducated, arrogant, unhealthy, and believe they are God’s gift to man. They believe their product is the only product they can sell and manufacture. They take no risk, have no vision, and are so empty minded it’s a wonder how they have stayed in business this long.

Attorneys want something for themselves in addition to helping their clients get what they can. Among the questions people ask us include whether or not we’re getting paid much and if we rip off companies. Well, it is my job to do what I can to represent my clients and get what I can in the process. And there are instances where a person gets a little more than they should. But companies should maintain their stand.
Sometimes the compensation plan is stacked against the distributor and it takes too long to begin making money. This may discourage you from working hard, and it may mean that your downline, get discouraged and quit. Both of these keep you from financial success.
I probably will never be able to think or write about this topic without remembering Alex. I would not have wanted him to grow up in a world where teenagers ought to stash their savings in gold. That would be a world of hopelessness and fear. Young people should invest for a world in which they can combine small amounts of capital with large amounts of energy and vision to create a future whose glitter is not hidden away in a vault.
