Wouldn't it be difficult to have a bank account with hundreds of thousands and also to make big t online auctionransactions without attracting the IRS? He never mentions taxes (maybe they don't pay taxes in England).

Also, in a different book, Goldsmith admits that after finding a couple of dollars(pounds) on the street he added "outside" money to help it along.

I walk a lot in my city and have found almost $30.00 on the ground. I have doubled it in two years using his system, but I am not overly ambitious with it, just do it for fun.


I have just started on Stuart Goldsmith's idea, but make it easier, I borrowed a dollar; I looked at local Salvation Army thrift shop and bought a small plastic film camera. This camera takes four separate exposure a fraction of a second apart,(handy for golfers perfecting their stance). Camera cost me 50 cents-I sold It for $20 by way an online auction, so after paying back the dollar I borrowed, and the auction fee, I now have $16.50 to purchase my next item!

I now have $40 to invest in something that will result in me eventually having $80. No time limit here but the eventual goal is to double to $1M so obviously a bank account won't cut it. It also doesn't have to be in one step - let's say I spend $30 on a book and sell it for $40. I'll then have $50 to invest to make the total of $80. If I buy the book for $30 and sell it for $60, I have to spend the excess on myself (game rules).

So, I'm looking for ideas that could potentially be used to turn $40 into $80.

C2C

My take is to forget rules-rules limit creativity - never mind doubling, if you can sell for 5 or 10 times what you paid, you are going to reach your goal sooner! To help, if I had $40 I would look for a second hand guitar $30.00, spend $10 on new strings, then sell for$80 -$120

(quiz: anybody know what movie that was from?)

millionaire


can't help with movie name but saying is based on an old gypsy rhyme that used to be heard in Britain, many years ago:

'"See a pin and pick it up, all that day you'll have good luck;

See a pin, let it lay you will live to rue the day."
