Former ML broker but I hated the cold-calling. Carroll School MBA. Have started and built multiple successful businesses, and my current endeavor may take me to retirement - it allows me to "work to live", rather than the reverse. I believe in diversification - equities, fixed income, real estate, precious metals, art & antiquities, liquid cash. I'm just here to learn - any day in which I don't learn something new is a day that I let get past me. I'd like to someday complete a full set of Chinese gold pandas, all years and denominations (hence my profile photo), but they're harder to acquire than most people realize. I'm open minded, but I also have a good nose for BS and there's a shedload of it here on SA. If you spew it I will call you on it, and I expect full reciprocation where deserved.
