If you are a fan of precious metals, then you must also be a fan of metallurgy. Everything from brazing to metal powder is a part of the process that also makes us our money, our quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies are forged from ancor sponge iron powders. But generally it isn’t the process of making money that interested most people; it is the art of making and spending it that finds itself at the forefront of our culture.
What types of things do you like about money? Do you love looking at your balances in specific investment accounts? Are you a fan of watching interest build over a period of time? Or do you prefer to take the money out of your account and use it to purchase any number of things that you desire at any given point in time? If you are more of a fan of spending than you are of saving, you might want to reconsider your plans a bit. Saving might not be fun, but reaching retirement with literally no money isn’t much fun either. You need savings so that you can retire at a reasonable age and allow yourself you enjoy your “golden years” to their fullest extent. In order to do this, you must make certain investments, both long term and short term, over your lifetime, and manage them with a great deal of maturity and knowledge. You control your own destiny.
