I’ve been playing in the stock market probably for a decade, but I’ve only had real money to do some actual things the past three years. I started when I was in middle school.
I’ve been in it before Jeremy even probably had a channel. But I’ve been watching Jeremy for about five, six years.
The thing that I like about his channel is that I knew he wasn’t going to lie. And another one is his competency. You can clearly tell he’s competent in the market. At the end of the day, just look at the numbers. The numbers don’t lie. The numbers speak for themselves, their competency, and then honesty.
Jeremy’s like the number one person I watch in regards to stock information, just financial education. So I do make investments that are not that Jeremy does not do, but a lot of them I have the same ones, but the same mentality.
I try to have the same mentality. I like long-term investing and just being smart about looking at fundamentals, not being very speculative. So on every game that I’ve had has definitely been mostly attributed to Jeremy.
I am now a 6 figure investor.
So basically, you know, Cameron, you’ve obviously I’m assuming you’re an investor in the market right now. Yep and how long have you been investing exactly? I’ve been playing with this been probably for a decade, but I’ve only had real money to do some actual things the past three years.
Starts out like basically the last three years is when you started taking it seriously, right? Yeah, it’s when I could actually deploy money because I’m only 20 three, so when I was doing it in middle school, you know, I was in $100 like 100% gain that made margarite.
Boy, you started when you were in middle school. That’s that’s a new one I’ve never heard before. Yeah, I mean, I’ve been in it before, before Jeremy even probably had a channel. But I’ve been watching Jeremy for about five, six years.
Wow, that’s incredible. That’s that’s pretty cool. Yeah, and in terms of, you know, like what was the one thing that resonated with you about his channel that made you like. Probably, probably a couple of things.
One was the openness, so especially like you mentioned, GoPro. How are you so open about his mistakes? And you kind of knew you were getting an authentic channel, someone that wasn’t going to BS you. So it was someone you could take seriously and learn from. That was big.
I knew he wasn’t going to lie. And another one is his competency. You can clearly tell he’s competent in the market. At the end of the day, just look at the numbers. The numbers don’t lie. The numbers speak for themselves, their competency and then honesty, the things. That’s amazing.
I mean, like I think I get that a lot in terms of honesty, just because he’s had a portfolio that he is kind of openly showed to the public, which is great, because obviously you can say you have success, but unless you show it, that’s when really that’s when it really kind of.
Resonates with people, I assume, because it definitely resonated with me before I joined, right. Right and so what have been your like how have your gains been the last two years maybe? How have you done in the market personally?
Oh, they’ve been great. You know, a lot of them, Jeremy’s like the number one person I watch in regards to stock information, just financial education. So I do make investments that are not that Jeremy does not do, but a lot of them I have the same ones, but the same mentality.
I try to do with the same mentality, though, like long term to long term investing and just being smart about looking at fundamentals, not being very speculative. So every game that I’ve had has definitely been mostly attributed to Jeremy. That’s incredible to hear, man. What are you. Let’s let’s play ball with me.
Are you are you almost are you a six figure investor or your seven figure investor? I’m going to I’m going to go on a limb, say maybe you’re a seven figure, not a six figure. Six figure. OK, OK, OK. That’s not very well. I mean, you started in middle school, my man. So it’s like. Well, yeah, but again, a middle school like again, like 100% down to $100.
Still $100. Right Yeah. Yeah I mean you’ve got a point there but if you understood I think I was speaking to somebody I think a week ago or less than a week ago, and she was talking about how her grandparents put a kind of a small little mutual fund for her and her little brother when they were first. Yeah, OK. Well, I was a Yeah.
And she was saying no, but she was saying they were only putting like 50 to $100 every like birthday. And the time I was 2020 I think we’re 19. She said she had $15,000 in that account. So it’s crazy. Uninterest works.
Right it’s like Yeah I’ll just play around with the compound calculator and it just open your eyes that it’s crazy. It’s, I’m definitely in it for the long term of doing it for a long time. I mean I was having fun with it in middle school even when I wasn’t making much money.
Yeah, it’s just I don’t know, it’s kind of like part of my life. I mean, it’s not all about even making money. I just like I just like playing the game. I mean, hey, like, that’s obviously going to help you out in the long, because if you like what you’re doing, then it makes it so much easier for you and it makes it so much funner.
And it’s not just about the money becomes become more of like just obsessed with the process. And I think Jeremy’s going to that. Oh Yeah. I him either. I think Jeremy, it’s like it’s not even just about the money for him.
It’s just about you just love speaking a stock and a couple of years down the line saying, I told you so and just like that. And it’s like right. It’s like after a while and you become really good. That’s what it becomes too. So that’s really cool to hear from you as well. Yeah and I figured. Yeah, ahead. Go ahead. I wish I could do a.
You know, I figure, you know, obviously I’ve gained a lot of, like, knowledge and just education from Jeremy, so if I could do anything like something like this, there’s any kind of feedback, that’s the least I could do other than smash the thumbs up and all the videos, you know? I love it.
I was going to I was going to tell you. So, you know, you’re a six figure investor. Now, let’s just say, like, your tomson 100k. Yes, we’re different. I’m just going to assume that I’m. Am I even close? First of all, am I even someone close? Yes OK, great. So, you know, what’s your goals in the next five years? What do you where do you see that account being?
Because obviously you seem like a guy that has done fundamental investing rather than playing around and. Yeah money. So I’m definitely I’m definitely focused on I’d like to shift my focus a little bit more on, like, retention, because, you know, Jeremy said stuff like, you know, once you make a big mistake, it takes a lot to come back from it.
So I’m still super young, so still highly growth oriented, but a little bit more retention’s right now. Just a little bit. Yeah and once I. You, general. I got I got I got. So I’m on a boat right now.
Yeah, but by 30, by the age of 30, I’d like to pretty much have the freedom to do whatever I want. So I don’t have a tangible number that means, but pretty much just go hard for the next seven years.
And not like going to quit investing or anything, but just get to the point where I have, like, complete freedom, you know. Yeah you know, I totally. So you want to say basically from what I’m getting is like, you’re 23 right now by 30, you want to kind of be able to.
To just have the freedom to be able to do whatever you want and, and you want to attribute that to investing and be a reason being. I mean that’s the other thought about like I know you said you don’t think about a number, but as has there been people around you that you have kind of.
Scene where or when they have finally been free, and you said maybe that’s some a number that I would like to kind of accomplish. Is there something like that even or completely out of the ordinary? It’s not even a number for you. OK, that you’re sorry.
So so I know you said you don’t you’re not going to don’t have a number in mind what that freedom looks like. But has there been people around you that are kind of financially free and they have a number that you think that that would be enough, like some of you have some sort of idea, even if you’re not kind of stuck to a number?
Yeah, I mean, two million would be nice just to get to the goal. But obviously I’d want to get past that. I don’t really live in a very expensive place. The two million would be a lot, OK. So probably I mean, I a million used to be a lot, but now it’s not that much anymore, so. Yeah Yeah. And that’s the thing.
I mean, I mean, that’s definitely a big goal to have, especially if you have $100,000 in your account at the moment, you know, assuming that’s what the six figure like, that’s what you’re talking like. I mean, it’s not it’s not completely out of the equation.
People do that and it’s like seven years from now. It’s a lot of time. And Jeremy, you know, Jeremy, like, made his biggest jump when he first started and it was way under 100k. So you’re starting at 100 k, which right at the compound interest will kind of play in your favor and be able to kind of propel you to a long career.
And yeah, I know we had like 220 seventeen, so it’s pretty incredible. He’s done well. Yeah, it’s pretty incredible. It’s pretty incredible. Yeah and Yeah. And like, you know, I’m to be honest with you, it’s very cool getting your feedback, getting you’re getting old and just getting another person’s perspective from the outside of Harald you know you love us.
You’ve always been a diehard Watcher of his YouTube channel and not just because you see it now, because you’re just a fan, but more that you are actually finding a lot of value from it. And I feel like that. Yeah, that’s definitely a win for him.
He loves hearing that. He loves hearing people getting value from his teachings. And to be honest, I love hearing that because nowadays it’s very difficult to find people that are fundamental based investors.
They’re more like kind of playing around, you know, GME or whatever it is they want to kind of like the way it is. Oh, man, I have to hear all that. I’m pretty young, too. So it’s a bunch of young people, like my friends are talking about all the speculation stuff and they’re like, Oh yeah, we make so much money.
So I just I just don’t even say anything anymore because they don’t want to let it go. It hurts you because like, no, that’s not how you’re supposed to do it. But getting to being that Debbie downer, the one that’s coming down and saying, no, guys, you’ve got to me, it’s just no matter what I mean. Yeah, exactly.
I don’t want to hear that. You actually have to wait like years to, like, see good results. So true, that is so true, I mean, I counted the same exact problem on friends all the time. Yeah, I mean, it’s definitely what I wanted to do is like what was for you, you know.
What’s the biggest what do you feel like is your biggest next to something that you feel like you need to improve on in your investing to be able to kind of get you to the point where you’re kind of free financially? What do you think? There’s one or two things that you really need to feel like you really need to improve on.
And if you feel like you improve on those, you can become very sound much more than you are now since you’ve been in the market so long. Yeah, I would say probably two things. One, obviously. More income, right? That would be an obvious one, but to. Two would be learning how to value companies as good as Jeremy, I guess.
Yes, the level of math now is good, but it’s not good enough, you know, so just to continue to learn to almost make it like 100% certain that an investment is going to be successful. And so just like, you know, 80% certain.
Yeah so probably that. Perfect and are you are you are you fluent in financial statements and stuff or you kind of are you going that from Jamie use it or are you still kind of if you want. Yeah I’ll read into those and stuff.
I don’t I guess is the time that I put into it. If I only played like a few days and the stock, I guess I could be working on my patience and probably looking to a stock for maybe weeks on end. More patients in the market to.
Yeah, no, that’s definitely something that I hear a lot, too. Also another thing is like if you put even if you put a certain amount of time, it’s like if you’re more efficient with your research and you know what to look for so you can better value the companies, it’ll save you time on the research.
So you don’t necessarily have to spend 40 hours a week to get to research a stock. You can search it in like 10 hours or 15 hours and whatever you feel about you. But if you know how to do it, like in a more efficient manner, then it’s like it’s you know, it’s a then it’s like you’re saving yourself much more time.
You’re able to research more stocks as well. So, you know, first of all, I want to thank you for being here. That was actually really cool for first of all, speaking about your journey. That was really cool. That’s for me.
I was hearing that it was based on the fact that, you know, the channel has helped you is definitely something that we feel like we don’t want to see pride ourselves in because like, you know, we actually like that’s the main goal of the channel.
And it’s to actually help out as many people as possible to be able to kind of achieve their goals, whether that’s financial freedom, whether it’s just bulging in money or whatever it is, like just being able to do it and learn how to do it for themselves. Yeah, for sure.
Have you given the order for Jeremy for a while? I’ve actually been with Jeremy for about seven months now. Six, seven months. I was actually in Vegas. Sorry, you live in vegas? I do not live in Vegas. No, I want to.
I live in Canada. Actually it’s Canada. Yeah Yeah that I like. I like that I like Canada. I like that one. That’s, that’s pretty far. That is. It is. It’s snowing and far and cold and just you name everything admit about it right now but. Oh man. But it’s definitely great.
Yeah but like, like from my experience knowing the guy like we definitely speak with like the internal team and with, with our quarantine and everything like that. So it’s the main goal of this whole thing is to actually get people like into this stuff because it’s really life changing.
And if you do it the right way, changing, it can get you out of a 9:00 to 5:00 for the rest of your life, maybe not let Rich get richer or whatever it is, but it’s something that can be definitely. Help you out in the long term, so it’s cool, the hearing that thank you for sharing. Yeah, absolutely, any time.
