I just want to share a story of a Chinese businesswoman whom I just recently met and had a chat with regarding business and growing one's money. She shared her story when she was still starting in the business world. She didn't have any decent education and didn't know anything about investments or business but she said that a good friend of hers advised her to invest and stock up on gold. She was still a young lady at that time, I think that was still in the 70's or 80's. There were a lot of small scale mining operations during that time and she didn't know where to put the money she earned from her work as a sales lady so she decided to take a risk at investing in physical gold as what her friend told her. Then after a few years, when the value of gold has increased, she decided to sell them and was able to make a big profit out of that. She no longer stocks up physical gold now but she now has a dry goods shop that she owns and manages. Part of the money she used to start that business came from the money she earned from selling her gold. Have you also invested on physical gold? What are your experiences so far?
