This is my first "real job" since graduating Summa Cum Laude in May '12 with a degree in Finance & Business Administration and a minor in International Business.
I have always had a passion for the markets and desire for learning about how economies function. Since I was not successful finding a job where I could manage other people's portfolio's, I decided that I would just manage my own (because that is what I really wanted all along). Things did not go according to plan after graduation, but I believe things happen for a reason and am very grateful for my job and all the valuable skills I work my ass off on improving day after day.
I exercise every day at 5:30 before work. Get to work early and kick ass every day. Spend most evenings reading.
