F.T.W.S.I.J.D.G.I.G.T.

(For those who say I just don’t get it…get this)

Remember all that sage advise given out by the “Retire Rich” with ________(fill in latest fad here) from that so-called “guru?” You know, the one that came out just a while back to give his story about why people hated him because of all his “ads” that scammed enticed them to partake in the crypto miracle of printing your own retirement ticket? That is, till it all collapsed, once again, only to remind everyone about why they hated him in the first place.

Hint: It’s still $thousands below that “Look see, it’s coming back” insinuations of pure tripe.

Well, I just feel it is only fitting to help those that may have tried to forget, but are now being reminded, in-spades, that his brand of “guru-ism” appears to have far more in common with snake oil salesman than he would like to be reminded of himself. Your interactions may differ, but in my opinion, it’s people like this that give snake oil a bad name. But again, that’s just me.

So it is in that light I would like to illuminate another of his ongoing “guru” calls and see how that’s all working out. After all, this is what he switched to (as in the “advice” giving racket) quicker than a crack pipe user switches lighters when the entire crypto racket fell apart.

That other racket? Hint: Rhymes with Pot, Weed, Cannabis, -retirement.

Here’s the latest “picture” as they say in “The Valley,” which he is supposed to be and considered a “legend” on investment, entrepreneurship and “guru” quality insight.” It is called YOLO™ which is the ETF offered as something of a representative of the cannabis industry in a basket. Think of it the way Bitcoin™ simulates or represents the entirety for health, interest and well-being in regards to the entire crypto arena. To wit:

The only advice I would give to anyone following his (and what would I know, after all, I’m not a “guru” on TV right?) would be – maybe you will retire rich…

If that means compared to those living out on the streets of San Fran or L.A.

But then again…

What do I know.

Footnote: These “FTWSIJDGIGT” articles came into being when many of the topics I had opined on over the years were being openly criticized for “having no clue”. Yet, over the years, these insights came back around showing maybe I knew a little bit more than some were giving me credit for. It was my way of tongue-in-cheek as to not use the old “I told you so” analogy. I’m saying this purely for the benefit of those who may be new or reading here for the first time. I never wanted or want to seem like I’m doing the “Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah” type of response to my detractors. I’d rather let the chips fall – good or bad – and let readers decide the credibility of either side. Occasionally however, there are and have been times they do need to be pointed out, which is why these now have taken on a life of their own. (i.e., something of significance per se that may have a direct impact on one’s business etc., etc.) And readers, colleagues, and others have requested their continuance.
