I got into trading when I was forced to handle stocks left by family death. It has been a hard, long road for me, as I never anticipated how complex and involved trying to make money is, and has only become all the more difficult in the last year(s).
I have learned much, but still make some of the same errors. The risks can make you a good amount of money, but the knife cuts both ways, and you can end up with losses. Lack of employing good exit strategy has been my downfall, but perhaps beating my stubborn head against the wall will finally make this necessity of trading sink in.

I am a personal investor. I do not work for any investment banking or financial firm. I am a management and strategy consultant living in the Washington D.C. area who believes that sound investments are the way to provide financial stability and security for your future and your family. I believe in primarily dividend growth investing, and that is what most of my research centers upon. I will occasionally take a flyer on a stock that I believe has tremendous potential for growth, or is significantly undervalued, but those stocks make up a small portion of my portfolio. I began investing in high quality dividend stocks at 22 with whatever money I could scrape together and set aside. I now contribute monthly to my portfolio, and add new investments or to existing positions on a quarterly basis.
