I am a 37 yrs old guy who works full-time as a Business Analyst for a Fortune 500 Telecom company. I've been on and off investing in stocks but nothing serious. Started seriously in Aug 2013. My goal is to have my money work as hard as myself. I believe in small cap growth stocks with an emphasis in technology. I check my portfolio everyday and visit this site daily to learn. Besides this new found passion of growing my portfolio, I am a father of three amazing kids. Love to play soccer, train martial arts & regularly do weight training. My philosophy of life is best expressed in a quote from Dalai Lama, "Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."
