Like a spy, or private eye, when you follow the gold in business, you may have to set up your own covert operation to discover where it really is. Any good detective will examine, and thoroughly consider all information collected. You then process the information to see if it lines up with your other discoveries.
John Reed, of Cabarrus County, NC owned a rural farm in 1799. His son, Conrad, found a large gold rock weighing around 17 lbs on their farm. The rock was used as a door stop for 3 years, until a jeweler from Fayetteville determined (in 1802) that it was a gold nugget. The jeweler purchased the gold from Mr. Reed for $3.50. John Reed the next year partnered with three other men, and opened The Reed Gold Mine.
Even when gold is dropped into our laps, we may not know the value. That’s why it’s important to check with the experts (mentors) to see what you have. Other valuable tidbits may be found by checking with the locals (colleagues). Just like any small village, or town, the locals usually know where to find the best of the best. Of course, don’t rule out your own instincts in determining the information you’ve gathered. When you follow the gold inside your covert operation, give yourself time to consider your discoveries.
