A 60% Return… From Doing Nothing

Roy Thomas’ little enterprise brought in $34 million in 2011… The thing is, Roy did nothing to bring this money in… The toughest part of Roy’s job is probably coping with the boredom… He simply cashes royalty checks when they arrive, and he sells (unadvertised) land when the phone rings with an unsolicited buyer on the other end.

It Is Halftime In America – Get Your Financial Priorities In Order
