I had the opportunity to invest in bitcoin right before it wenthuge & I still kick myself every day.

My dad missed out on a big opportunity. His friend asked him if he wanted to partner with him in his new fertilizer company and he passed and his friend made millions. But it actually worked out because his friend ended up losing the company in a huge scandal and lost everything!
