  17. This video is not one of the kind of "from dishwasher to millionaire".
    Its more about: "how to get richer, if you already are rich".

  18. This guy is a billionaire and you people are trying trying to say he if off or that he does not know what he is talking about haha….. Lets see you make a Billion in your lifetime. I rather take advice from a billionaire than a person who is broke or thinks they know it all just because they went to some college.

  19. When you mentioned Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor I was excited because I am 19 and have read that. It really has changed my whole thinking similar to how it was for you. Great to hear successful people talk about things you are already doing. Thanks.

  20. i'm 20 and i have $20,000 saved up, is it decent ?

  21. Why did when i do the counting there're some differences?
    1. Revenue: 800 – 1764 – 2917 – 4288 – 8274
    2. COGS: if 1 stand cost 200 on cogs for 800 cups, 2 stand of 840 cups should change no?
    3. Depreciation, i thought that the depreciation is for each lemonade stand? if he got like 7 stands, should that have different counting (assumption each stand has 5 years to depreciate, each year has different depreciation for each stand)
    4. Labor, i thought the assumption that 530/year is for each stand, so if in year 5 he has 7 stands, how come it's 3,710 instead 530 x 7 stands (89040$) )
    5. the rest of margin might be different since the whole thing is different, anyone?

    Can somebody help me with this?

  28. People keep getting confused on how he got the money to start the 2nd lemonade stand. Here is the twist: he is the only staff member who manned the 1st stand. Instead of having an income, he reinvest it. So 530 + the left over of 250 give him enough money to buy the 2nd stand. How would he pay the 2nd staff member? By using his own income in year 2, so again he himself is not making any money.

  29. This shit is so stupid. There are buildings full of people on Wall Street that are trying to make money and they barely make anything. The idea that random people from normal walks of life can invest and get rich is naive as hell.
