I would not recommend this to anyone, like I said, it was a gamble that paid off.

So, I'm not sure that I agree in general, though it may have been a gamble in your particular case. You were invested in a family business that has done well. I agree that it's not easy to make a family business work. But if you know your relatives who are working with the business and they have integrity, business sense, and a strong work ethic, there is still a lot to be said for it.

ThyPeace, much prefers to invest in people, places, and things that she knows well.
