Imagine you just inherited some money -- what would you do with it? Invest it in the stock market? Make a big purchase? Pay off some debts? What if your boss said you could trust him to invest it for you?

How would you feel if this happened to you? Who knows?

Noted with Thanks Carrie. I guess Mr. Hanson was too proud, and maybe thought the Warren Buffet was going to make it so big in the business world. Warren Buffet is the most down to earth rich person in the US.

Interesting story Carrie. This couple reminds me of my Dad. My Dad was a bit of an investor himself (did extremely well during his retirement years) and always talked about his one big mistake- not investing in Xerox back in the 50s when it was still called "The Haloid Photographic Company". Just as many make this kind of mistake as do the other kind of mistake where they lose a bundle.

If we all had the ability to go back in time and do
something over it could radically change the world
- and not always for the better.
