  1. Nothing greater than seeing somebody these days that young actually work I’m one of the hardest jobs on this Earth. Never complaining, never taking time out for his self all he does is work. Now that is a blessed man of God right there.

    • Have you seen the show.. he actually isnt very hands on at all; it has mostly been the people around him that have kept him from falling 9n his ass… Still, not to take away everything, what he has accomplished and learned is very impressive l.

      • Michael, I think that’s just for The Show ….he hasn’t gotten that successful doing nothing. If you’ve watched the show since Parker started this journey, you would see that back in the day he spent months and months at the mine all by himself working his rear end off. At sixteen. What kid does that? He had an awesome mentor with his Grandpa and at his age …..he’s very impressive.

        • Not only that, when you own the company, you call the shots… he paid his dues now it’s time to delegate and take care of what it takes to keep the business running!

      • Hi Linda, You are 100% correct. I’ve also been watching the show since its inception and have always marveled, respected, and admired Parkers work ethic and courage. Watching a 16yr old on summer break manuever the huge machinery over treacherous paths with such expertise, I was often worried that he would tip over. Thankfully not. He did have his moments of imaturity at 16 dealing with the crew and the nuances that requires however, his Grandfather was an awesome mentor who Parker obviously adored. I think Parker is someone to be admired and is an inspiration to all young and old!!! Parker is a one of the BIG reasons I watched the show and continue to do so. I couldnt believe what he was doing and accomplishing at such a young age. You ROCK Parker!!

      • That’s why he is worth what he is worth and you are worth what you are worth.
        He knows that the one who makes the decision makes that larger piece of the Pie.
        Parker has all the Pie!!!

  2. I wish i could paint a picture of him with a big gold nugget in his mouth with a smile! Hardest worker from a young age! I would love to meet him!

  3. I would say Parker is worth more than what is shown here. Parker is smart enough to stash his gold in a safe for the future. He is a very successful entrepreneur and to be admired. Also, his equipment has to be way in the millions. Good Job Parker, I watch every episode and your family is the greatest.
