The problem with 'investing' is it takes many large concepts and tries to put them under one umberella.

Rober(#1)t and Suzie(#2) are perfect examples.

Robert has the idea of growing wealth from zero. If I was in my 20's and just started out in life I'd definately follow his advice because I'd have nothing to lose. If I went bankrupt 2 or 3 times that's cool because I have time on my side.

If I was in my 40's or 50's I don't think I could take the chances that Robeert wants you to take also I wouldn't have the time because of 'family' etc. 

I'd probably have a good job that pays well, as realated to a 20-21yo., so taking my 'wealth' I've already accumulated and growing it as Suzie suggests would probably be best for me.


It all comes down to risk and how much you could handle, you rability to learn something new, and determination.
