Wealth is created through timing of a thing or purpose; through preparation of oneself for an opportunity. What is your opportunity and can you see it even in these hard economic times? Are you ready to solve problem? opportunities may come in the form to start a new business. I learn something about the Great Depression of 1929; two percent of the people were invested in the stock market while ninety-eight percent kept their money in a local back and it was confiscated. No matter what you think about investing in the stock market or other investments, Rockefeller still made money when the Depression was going on. In fact at the end of the Depression they were able to sell some shares a buy buildings (Park 740, book).
