“Hi, I’m Keith, and I work in manufacturing. I joined the group to learn more about what I should be looking for, what other people are seeing in the stocks, and to get involved with other people as people that I know don’t really talk about stocks, don’t really talk about money, they get around other people that get the same mindset as I want to be.
My stock investing process before joining the program, I was putting money into companies that I knew about Coca-Cola berzerk don’t know just that there were names that I knew and wasn’t seeing any. I was losing much, but I definitely wasn’t gaining anything.
I’m now well over 200 thousand, including cash available prior to that, the highest in my bank. I was probably 10 after getting taxes back.”
Hi, I’m Keith, and I work in a manufacturing. I joined the group to learn more what I should be looking for, what other people are seeing in the stocks, and to get involved with other people as people that I know don’t really talk about stocks, don’t really talk about money, they get around other people that get the same mindset as I want to be.
My stock investing process before joining the program, I was putting money into companies that I knew about Coca-Cola berzerk don’t know just that there were names that I knew and wasn’t seeing any. I was losing much, but I definitely wasn’t gaining anything. So I think my biggest struggle, the biggest hurdle was that I’d been investing for about two years.
I was seeing, OK, growth, one percent, two percent, nothing but significant. I was watching YouTube videos and watching other people’s games. I watch a video. And I feel like I was late to the party. It already had a run up on the stop. So my biggest hurdle was seeing no real growth. And then not knowing what I should be looking for.
Very impact from myself would be I was trying to talk to friends, you know, other people that I knew involved maybe just start a dialogue with them about investing in stocks. One of the things that happened was one of my friends, we were talking about, things were on money, talks about stocks.
And what I was trying to do at home was that he said, if we start making some real money and that right there is like, shit, I got to do something different. Even with the things that we’re trying to do. And watch these videos pretty much basically daily round, every time I make it there, I’m on the East coast, so I’ll be making dinner and the video will come out and I’d watch it while I’m making dinner.
I probably did this for easy to almost 2 and 1/2 years until I decided to buy the program. He had a sale and it was New Year’s. I said, I’m going to do something different this year. And I believe it was for the third or fourth day of this year. I went ahead and bought into the program. The reason it finally went ahead and bought into the program during the program is I had two, 2 and 1/2 years of doing it on my own, watching videos of people give me their opinion, their ideas.
But most time that was late to the party. I still didn’t know in detail what I should be looking for. Joe said it was the frustration of not seeing the gains, along with actually becoming more comfortable that a lot of small investments over two years, no big losses is comparable in spending. The money are putting out the money that I finally said, all right, I’m a buyer of this program. I’ll learn what you do. And I’ll put some real money into the stock market.
Not sure if it’s a quick one or aha moment, but just do the whole process, don’t you think you got to do the homework? It’s not really a quick win, but if you don’t do your homework, you’re not going to win at all. So doing the homework, listening to the reports, company after company, just go through it, go through it two, three, four nights a week, spend a half hour to an hour. And the kids are getting ready to go to Bed Bath time. They’re up there taking their bath.
I sneaked out of the computer, start listening to something that’s not really a quick win, but it’s got to do the homework. The homework is the key. So how have things changed for me over the last couple of years from when I started to as a recording, this actually started investing three years ago to start up a Twitter account. I’m now. Well over 200 thousand, including cash available prior to that, the highest in my bank. I was probably 10 after getting taxes back.
Now, today, I’ve treat the stock market kind of like a savings account that’s putting money in a savings account, which really doesn’t earn any interest. I move moved over to my TD Ameritrade account. And I let it sit there. And I keep putting money into there. And then once I have enough money. And there’s a stock I want, I go buy.
I’m very comfortable now making a good stock because I now talk with people I know it’s probably like six or seven of us to talk stocks regularly, to bring up a couple of companies each other, talk about it, why they like and why we don’t like it. Lifestyle, lifestyle. Has it changed? I still haven’t pulled any money out of the stocks. I’m putting in and putting anybody in, but definitely more confident and definitely have a better community of people to talk to about stocks around.
So my next step, my next goal myself, would be hitting a million, a million in stocks. That’s just the next one. I really would like to be around 2 and 1/2 to $3 million range when I go to. Excellent and comfortable. But really the biggest accomplishment. I think I can get out of this is taking this information that I’ve learned I’ve gained and sharing it with my kids. I was never really brought up talks about money. Nobody really talked to me about money.
For most of my life has been paycheck to paycheck. So if I can take this information that I’ve learned, share my kids, allow them to have a easier, easier life or more comfortable, comfortable like that would be my biggest accomplishment from this whole thing.
But personally, I want to get to 2 million. So I could retire. So the last thing would be anything that anybody teach to Jamie teach anybody is you wash from anybody else, do your own homework. There’s companies that Jamie likes and I love huge fan of.
There’s ones that I’ve made a ton of money off of. The Jamie doesn’t really like high evaluations, but still people lot of. But you got to do your homework. You got like the company. You can invest in the company because Jeremy says so workers Jim Bob over there said so do the homework, know what you’re investing in and then go for the homework, homework, homework, homework.
That is the biggest thing that you could possibly get out of any investing, any video, any course. They’re all going to tell you, do your homework, know what you’re investing in.
