I joined Discord. I joined the private group. I got lots more knowledge. Now I’m more comfortable. I can make even more gains. I can level up even more. So that’s what did it for me, just the gains and the excitement. So that’s why I’m still here.
Keep leveling up, keep it going, you know, that’s kind of what got me got me hooked. So here I am today. Joining the group is for me. What’s really helped out is just the confidence I’ve gained. I mean, just the emotional confidence to not sell whenever the market dips or buy as a stock skyrocketing just for formal reasons.
Hi, my name is Robert Friday, and I sell engineered hydraulic and pneumatic systems to manufacturers, distributors around the nation. I’m in that private group because. Like I tell my wife, I want to level the f up, and with all the valuable knowledge, information that people share in there, it’s working. It’s helping us pretty much 3x my portfolio.
Since joining Jeremey, I listen to about 2 and 1/2 years ago. I got in here about six months ago. But like I said, the discord has just helped me level up. I got to let my wife know that a lot because I’m in there a lot. She’s like, what are you doing again? Check out my robinhood, my fidelity. Look at how this is helping. You won’t be griping when carnival gets going. We’re back in one of those cruises. You’ll be griping. Not at all. But just want to say the knowledge.
I join it just for that knowledge, just to really level up. Keep it going. And eventually gain that freedom. I don’t want to sell hydraulics anymore. I want some freedom, some stock freedom. So anyways, Thanks a lot, Jeremy. I appreciate it. Stocktaking before the group, literally before. I mean, I didn’t have much knowledge really just that’s got a cool ticker symbol name or guy across the street.
This company is going to grow. OK, let’s give it a try. So it was just like I had no fundamentals, no real reason for investing in anything. So like I said, it was just kind of fly by night. Throwing darts and seeing where they stick, so I’ve gained. All my fundamentals. Everything I do from the group, from Jeremy, so that’s literally what it is, I, I just had nobody to teach me. And I found it.
So anyways, that’s that, you know, I’ve never really had a huge challenge that led me into the stock market. I’ve been real estate. Now for almost 10 years. We have quite a few rentals, eight rentals to Airbnb that are doing really, really well. I just wanted to diversify. And I want something with a lot less overhead. This real estate is a lot of overhead, a lot of problems.
And I just got back from one of my houses roughly got to get a new roof on the house. So anyways, that I guess was my challenge in of itself, is just maybe a way to find something with less overhead that can hopefully make more money than real estate and a lot less hassle. So that was kind of maybe the challenge. There was just, I don’t know, in a way, trying to get out of real estate or diversify away from it. And I truly like stocks. No, overhead, just overhead. Is my phone pretty much checking my stocks on a daily basis? More than I should, but it’s fun.
So anyway, it’s not much of a challenge, I should say. Like I said, not much of a challenge for me to join the stock market. I honestly watched a couple of Jeremy’s videos about, oh, cruzi Doocy back in the day. And I was like, I got to do this. I mean, it was a the challenge was how fast can I download Robinhood onto my phone.
So I can start pouring money into these stocks. And looking into 10 to use conference calls, all that other good stuff. So like I said, not too much of a challenge with it. It would have been like, how fast can I get this app on my phone. So I could get going? You know, I waited just a little bit. I probably waited about a year and a half. I make time for it. So that was my only hesitation, was the time factor with having two kids, a three-year-old and a one-year-old.
So as you can see, my hands are pretty busy with that right now. But that was it. Just kind of the time issue. You know, it finally made me join was I just had some massive gains on some stocks. I did. And it was awesome. It’s fun. You know, I tasted that blood like Edward Cullen in twilight. I wanted more. How do I get more? I join the Discord. I join the private group. I get lots more knowledge.
Now I’m more comfortable now. I can make even more gains. I can level up even more. So that’s what did it for me, just the gains and the excitement. So that’s why I’m still here. So I’m still going. So quick. Win for me was my first and I’ll start. I started buying it a couple of years ago. And I double that. I put 15 grand in there, doubled it pretty much overnight. I believe in 2019 whatever.
The stock market really started going up. I was buying a lot at 2016 2017. 2018 And once that doubled I was kind of like all right, all right then you know, because of Jeremy Lefevbre’s recommendations and doing the research about a lot of Tesla. What about 35 grand and Tesla that about doubled overnight. Still have it. I’m 100 grand whatever. A lot on it. So those kind of moments. Really woke me up and was like, damn, this is where it’s at. Keep leveling up, keep it going, you know, that’s kind of what got me got me hooked. So here I am today.
Joining the group is for me. What’s really helped out is just the confidence I’ve gained. I mean, just the emotional confidence to not sell whenever the market dips or buy as a stock skyrocketing just for formal reasons. So I’ve really gained lots and lots of confidence and I’m kind of understanding why I’m doing things rather than just doing them. So that’s what’s changed with this whole thing, is my confidence.
It’s just gone through the roof, which is awesome for the future. What I want to accomplish. I mean, Jeremy. So that is what. Drives me, and that’s my goal, my end goal, just get enough money in the stock market, real estate, get me freedom, you know, that’s why I stay on that disgorge every time I get where I want to be, you know, want to be around my kids more.
Everything in money just gives you that freedom get confidence to get that freedom. So that’s what I want here. Like I said, I want to thank Jeremy for showing me modern long term investing back in December. 2017 back in the cruzi Doocy days for getting me on this Discord shed.
So that I am around a bunch of like minded individuals that will, you know, keep helping me gain knowledge to get where I want to go. And I just love the whole thing. Investing in balance sheet, income statement CEOs PE ratios, just something that I never really knew how to do, what to do.
I’m listening to the. Stupid Bob down the road told me to invest in whatever Enron, I don’t know, so I just really it’s been a truly incredible just gaining this pretty much knowledge and getting the confidence to get where I want to go.
So I just want to say the Discord or Jeremy helped me out with all of that stuff, just pounding those fundamentals in your head. And then kind of letting you take the wheel. Once you get that confidence where you know, which I’m at right now. So just appreciate all that and a let’s keep level of up, baby.
