Why did we choose Marmot as a name?
What do marmots have to do with money and growing wealth? ... And why should we all want a little marmot in our pocket for rainy days? Here’s the story...
It all started 2’500 years ago when Herodotus, an ancient Greek historian, wrote about a fox-sized ‘golden animal’ that was used to find gold in the ancient Persian empire.
These little animals would dig their burrows deep into the ground to prepare for hibernation during the long winter months. If there was gold buried, the golden dust would appear in the dirt above these holes. The ancient Greeks would then look for the golden dust in order to find gold for themselves.
But that’s not the only way that marmots can relate to investors…
These golden animals live up high, in our beautiful Swiss Alps. They live in big communities or families called colonies. After all their hard work of finding food to last them through the winter and digging their deep holes to survive the long winter, they hibernate from September until May.
In May, when they are finally able to come out again, they can be seen spending their days lounging around on rocks, soaking up the sun. Similar to smart investors... they are able to enjoy a relaxing full life after all of their consistent work and smart planning.
So...are you ready to have your very own Marmot to lead you to the gold and help you strategically plan for a long life of enjoyment?
