Tired of this "Rollercoaster"? Give this some thought...Your future sanity depends on it!
The recent rash of disappointed, negative and even vindictive comments about Tony's information and sources, including the constant accusation that either he or his sources MUST be lying, got me to thinking about the root issue here.
It isn't just "negative" people, or even troublemakers for the most part, but seemingly ordinary people who have become frustrated to the point of distraction and are lashing out at anyone or anything that they perceive as close to the cause.

Over a number of years, I had the opportunity to both invest in many private offerings as an Accredited Investor and to create, raise funds and develop several of my own. In many, perhaps most of these investments I experienced a lot of the same frustration from incomplete, ever-changing information ("Truth" as some of you call it) as I/we have experienced in our Dinar/Dong journey.
These definitely also included all of the projects I personally created and administered.
The problem boils down to our finite understanding of the complexities of investments, including thousands of things we have little to no control over, even when we're "in charge" of a project.
The whims of a continously changing marketplace, natural events and disasters, stupidity and incompetance of individuals anywhere in the chain of events, and a host of other knowable and unknowable conditions all impact the favorable outcome of any investment--hence all of the disclaimers and disclosures associated with private and even public offerings (read the "fine print" and you'll begin to understand some of what can and will go wrong).
So, how does that help you?
Think very carefully about your future--after the C/E and your initial rush of excitement and spending splurge(s):
What type of investments will allow you to sleep at night? Will you have nightmares about criminals/governments/PTB stealing/taxing/swindling your money?
How will you react to investment proposals fielded by your advisors, private bankers, confidants, etc.?
Do you have the stomach for putting your money into deals/investments/partnerships/charitable endeavors, etc., only to see it disappear without a trace through malfeasance, incompetance or just "bad luck"?
Many if not most private offerings and other investments which are projected to return better than CD rates have considerable amount of risk involved. The higher the reward, typically the higher the risk.
You need to think about your tolerance for risk, and then discuss that in detail with your advisory team--and do it before you invest in anything!
Many of you have never experienced the ups and downs of investment projects. So, this may be your first taste of what is coming your way, depending on the path you choose and what types of returns you seek. Don't like this "ride"?
Then don't immediately jump into another currency or other type of highly speculative investment! Good advisors will help. Make it your top priority to find them...then confide in them, and act on their counsel!
You will be tempted or talked into risky ventures by friends, family, and associates. Often "sure fire" deals blow up and leave you with nothing. Even worse when they pay off, and you naturally assume that it was due to your great insight, skill, or a personal lucky streak; you are bullet-proof!--So naturally you jump into even bigger risky ventures, only to see them ultimately fail.
Never, ever assume risks or liabilities beyond loss of your investment. You really can put yourself in a world of hurt by not understanding the implications and liabilities involved with a particular, often "can't fail" endeavor. Always have your attorney review each one and explain the risks involved before you jump in with both feet!
In summary, this ride we've been on is perhaps good training for our future lives as wealthy, responsible people. Begin to act like wealthy people act, learn to think like they think.
