I usually have the same thought but some people just have to be in the spotlight - Jim CramerMy theory is that if these guys (or gals) were such geniuses, they would be relaxing on their beachfront property in the Bahamas watching the waves & dividends roll in, not working on TV trying to sell their latest "system".
But I beg to differ!My theory is that if these guys (or gals) were such geniuses, they would be relaxing on their beachfront property in the Bahamas watching the waves & dividends roll in, not working on TV trying to sell their latest "system".
Let me re-phrase then. They would be sitting in front of their computers actually earning millions using their formula for success, not flogging it on television. Selling the secrets to your investing success is counterproductive, unless your income is from the selling, not from investing.But I beg to differ!
Generally speaking, I don't believe the lazy lifestyle suits the rich/genious class (except the lazy, who might have gotten rich through some luck, inheritance, lottery, Hollywood or such), in fact, 'most' self-made millionaires tend to work longer hours. The majority who have made it big (in terms of money), have incredible ambition, energy, drive, motivation, passion & vision; the sedentary lifestyle is just not for them, and the same would apply to people who may not have made it big in the monetary sense, but in some other way.
haha, i'm the same way.Those guys always intrigue me for some reason. I never go to any of their seminars or contact them. I just sit back and listen to their informercials and am intrigued for similar reasons as vince with the exclusive slap chop offer intrigues me. Great fun.
LOL glad to hear it. It seems everytime I turn on the TV there is someone new with their latest building wealth scheme. I do agree with the person above who said that if it was so great they would NOT be sharing it on TV of all places. Cripes, when I have such a great idea I try to keep it to myself otherwise it will NOT be a great idea if everyone flocks to it.haha, i'm the same way.
"But if you call in the next 20 minutes, we'll also throw in The Grady! We can't afford to keep doing this all day, folks!"
hehe. I love the investing infomercials. The guy drives his luxury car up to his mansion and then turns around and tells us about how we + our retired parents + our bankrupt cousins can make untold wealth if we would all just start investing in forex markets. Gah!
It's so ludicrous that it's funny.
