doe shaving more make you more and at a faster rate?
Oh. I got it.
Does Having More.... I was wondering what shaving had to do with making gold.
To that, yes and no. Some people have 5k to invest, some people have 500k to invest. It depends on market saturation and your competition.. mostly the saturation. With some markets, having more than 1000g isn't going to give you a significant benefit and in others having 300k (or more) to invest does help you ramp things up....
It's all about opportunity and the window of that opportunity.
I love the example of the Darkmoon Fair (DMF) trinkets and vendor pets as opposite examples.
To take advantage of vendor pets, you can have a fully fledged swinging cross faction business with well under a couple hundred in gold. After that couple hundred gold, having more to throw into the venture doesn't really help you that much.
Take this example back to early Cataclysm when the DMF trinkets were new. I allocated a maximum of 300k (thinking back, I should have plugged a cool million into it, but alas..) into the Darkmoon Fair Trinkets. This let me buy the materials for x trinkets for sale which in turn I was able to sell for 600k (or 800k, somewhere like that). Next DMF I took 200k and turned that into 400k, next fair, 150k into 250k etc. etc. (the numbers are a bit on the low side, but you get the point) The market slowed down and became less profitable as time went on.. but the point being, yes., Without that initial 300k, I would have missed that whole opportunity. Those who got into the market with only 20k, (and some with 50-100k) found themselves on the wrong end of bad RNG and either broke even or made a little instead of cashing in big time.
If I was to invest in vendor pets again, my capital would not help me grow faster, though with a market like DMF trinkets, it would.
