I used to run a limited partnership, boutique hedge fund in the 90s. Retired in 2000 and moved from New York City to Toronto, Canada, got married, raised a family and basically settled down. After a few years in Toronto, my wife got tired of the city’s 8 months of cold weather and insisted that we move to a city where there are 8 months of warm and balmy weather. So we settled on San Diego, CA and moved here in 2005 and now call this lovely city with the most perfect weather, home…
It’s been 4 years since I started this blog back in December of 2012…though I did not actively post this year, my plan for 2017 is to adopt a slightly more hands-on role…we shall see…
For those new here, a quick background…I started Options2Wealth as a 6 month experiment in equity options trading with a seed capital of $10,000…my trades were transparent enough that I would first announce my trade(s) here before placing them…once my intention was time-stamped on this blog, I would then place the actual trade and post a screenshot of its execution as proof…
How well did I do? Well, if you really want to know, you will need to go through the first 56 posts, all saved here for posterity by the wonderful internet…every single trade, buy or sell, and the reason(s) behind the trade along with supporting charts, etc…it was one heck of a ride… :) A few of the blog’s readers piggy-backed on my trades and did pretty good for themselves, later sharing their individual testimonials, in the comments section, with everyone here … ;)
Last year, on a lark, my wife and I started a new company in the high-end consumer space…our company, iBBQ, sells a line of very unique, hand-crafted barbecue tables called the Angara…our tables are built by us at a facility in Michigan…recently, the Robb Report, the Bible of luxury living, dubbed it the "Ultimate in Outdoor Entertaining.” … check us out at http://www.ibbq.com ...and should you be interested in bringing the world's most stunning and versatile outdoor dining table to your backyard, contact me here and I may be able to make you an offer too difficult to turn down... :)
Best of Luck to All!
