I have told my children, my best friend and my sweetheart, but there are many in my life that I have deliberately decided not to tell. I have not told my other best friend (we are a triad), nor have I told anyone in my family, because they will:
- laugh (provoke shame)
- tell me how risky it is (instill fear)
- tell me how it is all luck and a monkey could do as well (question judgement)
- all of the above.
My starting capital is small, minuscule actually, but it doesn't really matter where I start. It only matters where I end.
- pay off debts
- create emergency fund
- replace my income
- retire/quit job--which verb will be more satisfying?
- build long term wealth
With this public declaration of my plan to build a trading business, I here do officially cast off the fear based, limit defined life into which I was raised and in which until this date, I have participated.
I will retire/quit my job within 5 years. My stretch goal is to do so when my younger son graduates from high school two and a half years from now, June 2019.
This blog will serve as my sounding board, my celebration of success, my autopsy for failures, as I really have no one with whom I can talk trading.
If you stumble upon this blog, thanks for reading.
