I got into stocks about six or seven years ago. I never took the plunge because I never had the money. I’ve been trying to get into the market ever since. About three years ago, I switched up from a normal job to being a freelancer. My wage went considerably up. I started investing mainly with ETFs at first because I didn’t know enough about the market to pick stocks.
I found Jeremy on YouTube. I was watching money related channels and he came up. I joined the private group because I wanted to get a little bit more involved with this since I did a lot of research.
What I like about Jeremy is that he doesn’t preach going into the risky stuff. Like, “Don’t go too far too quickly”. I also like that he thinks about the long run. Not just getting into the stock market for a quick buck and then get out.
How are you doing, man? OK, pretty good. Awesome, awesome. So tell me a bit about your investing journey. Well, so far I got into looking into stocks about six, seven years ago. I never took the plunge because I never had also the money.
I had my first wage as a software engineer, I think, in 20 2014 and immediately bought a car. Oh, man, Lucas. That’s what dumb people do, and, yeah, I actually don’t I don’t regret getting the car. I still have it.
And I still love it. So yeah, but yeah, I’ve been trying to get into the market ever since. And about three years ago, I switched up from a normal job to being a freelancer. My wage went considerably up.
I pull in around 150K per year before taxes of course, and I started investing mainly with ETFs at first because I didn’t know enough about the market to pick stocks. And so on. So I kind of did my research by now with reading with you.
Do with whatever else you have. And now I think I am as a beginner level, but at least confident enough to start picking stocks rather than awesome. Awesome So how long was it that you actually went from index funds to picking stocks?
So when was that time for the etfs? About a year and eight months. You’re in a mall almost two years, actually, so it would be two years in. I think that in April, since I started investing at all. And in January, I started, I started with my first stock level with the stock in January of 2016 years at 2021.
2021 OK, OK. And so what did you find, Jeremy. Just you, too, I don’t know, I think I was watching at that time some other channels and just came up through the YouTube algorithm. I watched a lot of money related.
So that’s like I also watch gram and I don’t know if you know about common sense investing. And there’s one that’s lighter called next lavalife life, filton. Also had a few that I didn’t like. But I also watch those. I think there was this. And remember the name butties?
So so at one point, what happened that you want to of picking your own stocks and best? Now, it seems like more fun, I mean, I kind of got bored with just I mean, with etfs, it was just I put $4,000 a month there in the stock account and they would on the first and on the 15th of the month, they would do invest 2000.
And somehow it seemed a bit boring. I know you mean. Yeah, I wanted to do to get a little bit more involved with this since I did a lot of research. And so on. And so what about Jeremy so far resonates with you? So what about Jeremy so far resonates with you?
What do you like about him? Well, first of all, I like that. He doesn’t or at least he doesn’t preach going into the risky stuff like shorting and. I don’t get some calls sometimes and some other stuff, but at least to all of us beginners, he doesn’t say, hey, go nuts, tries to give you a framework in which, of course, you can get burned because that’s what happens.
Right but. Yeah, don’t go too far to too quickly, right? Yeah, and how have your returns since you found Jeremy then? On well, great, I mean, yeah, I don’t follow only Jeremy, but somehow, at some point, I said, OK, I want to give this private group a shot because.
Judging by what I’ve learned from him and whatever I said, OK, I’m going to give it a shot. And let’s see for one year, and then next year I’ll see if I either upgrade to the lifetime or say, OK, was nice try and. I go way. So far, so good.
Probably going to upgrade, but. Yeah, we’ll see. I mean, holding a group since three weeks, maybe. Oh, man, awesome, awesome. Yeah, that’s why I’m a bit surprised about this, it’s called. Yeah, I get where you’re coming from, and so are you holding any jeremey stock portfolio currently?
Yeah, I have wanted to get into planning for 13 since a long time, and yeah, I’m also. And I’m not proud of that, I kind of bought a little bit on a whim. So with plans 13, I did my real. Research and so on, but with lag, I kind of bought a very small position on a whim, but I didn’t get it. Well, you know, I kind of want to look into what I got into CI/CD.
And what are some key lessons you’ve learned so far from jeremy? He listens, I don’t know. Kent put my finger on it. I mean. It could be an oil management. I do like about him is that he thinks about the long run.
And not just getting into a stock for a quick buck and then. Get out. So that’s also something I would like to do more. I mean, as he says, don’t marry a stock, but still don’t get into companies that you don’t believe in or.
Exactly you don’t understand. And this is watching this, and you want him to make a video on a certain topic, that topic B that you want to see Jeremy talk about. Hard question. I don’t know right now, I don’t know. I need to think about it.
Yeah, I understand. I don’t want to throw out a dumb subject that you already covered, so. Yeah, for sure. So would you mind sharing your portfolio with us for a little bit? Yeah, sure. So, yeah, so far, it’s not much to look at, this is a NASDAQ something Something they bought in August of I don’t remember when August.
I think, two years ago. And yeah, I have this tech, which I bought a little bit on a whim, as I said. And this one. This one, actually, I think I’m going to keep this one for a long time. I got the position for planet. Same here. And holding on to that one. And you return. So far as the one in the right, your total game, this one sorry, this 1% Is that your total return.
So far? Yes, that’s Yeah. That’s my overall gain on this account. Yeah beautiful. And this is January, so it’s fairly new now. These two positions are. Well this one I took in January. And I think also I don’t know if I can see.
I get the story here. Yeah, I kind of use my bank directly, it’s supposed to be a good one in Germany for doing this. I looked for some trading apps, but none of I couldn’t trust any of them. We don’t have stuff that you use here.
So, yeah, you kind of have to. To do what? With whatever Europe has to offer. Maybe I’ll ask the group for something better for Germany. I don’t know. It’s awesome. The community to ask questions to. That’s right away. Yeah OK.
It seems like that doesn’t work the way I wanted to work, but, yeah, I mean, you could look into shoot. I mean, I’m living in Germany, but I don’t know that my German, so I need to kind of fumble around my own account.
I don’t know. Let me do this. This is where Norman. Because if we look here, so let’s see when I bought. So last is. So I bought. Here now is one boy, that’s in the start of February actually want to do to go up to 20 to 30.
Also, let’s. Sorry, I’m glad to see you both in your positions, your education, and I also bought here in the 6th of January. Or the planet, and a few days ago, I bought the. Look, this is that’s something very different, holding.
0Yeah awesome, awesome. You know, aside from that, I have another idea for conflict that’s not interesting, I think, to this day. Thanks for sharing that man. All very interesting. Any any closing remarks. I want to make? Poor people that are going to watch what’s your story? I don’t know.
So far, so good. I’ve joined the group. And I’m pretty happy with it, and yeah, I think at least if you like what Jeremy does, it’s worth a try. So I had one. I’m having a year of tryout and. I’ll see if I continue afterwards, but so far it’s looking good. So, Yeah. Thanks for your time. Yeah, you’re welcome.
