Civil engineer using nurtured logical predictive ability to increase my retirement accounts and thereby recover somewhat from the one two punch of a divorce (in 2007 I borrowed to settle and keep real estate) and real estate downturn (2008 my real estate went underwater). Started investing in stocks in mid-2013 with $100k in a Roth IRA. Dropped to $69k, up to $500k, down to $105k, up to $670k, down to $315k, up to $850k. Goal is $4m by end of 2015. I am more than half way there having achieved an 8.5 bagger (end of 2015), I only need another 5 bagger to exceed my goal. TAX FREE.
