It depends on your goals and what you are trying to accomplish. For me personally, I'd rather have a consistent stream of income that comes in every month than one big bag of gold. We hear stories of people who win the lottery all the time only to find out years down the road they are right back where they have started. When it comes to money and finance, it's not just about making money but preserving it as well. Find something you enjoy doing and eventually the money will follow.
