Am 33, work in construction. Am hoping that investing will allow me to make up for time lost when I was younger and living a life based on bad decisions. I find economics and finances to be extremely interesting, as well as potentially profitable. I wish I had known this about myself earlier in life, but it is what it is. I have always been an independant learner, i taught myself the electrical trade, and got my certification without going to school. I now am working on teaching myself about finances and economics in my spare time.
