I am a logistics management major with a double minor in finance and french. I am getting married to my beautiful fiance Lauren this July and am in my mid 20's. I plan to be an entrepreneur and hope to continue to build my portfolio to a strong enough position to be able to leverage a v.c fund for my enterprises. I have worked for various political campaigns over the last decade and before majoring in Logistics and minoring in finance and french, I was intending to study political science with double minors in communications and french. Anything else you'd like to know please ask.

Cry like a baby when i remember sitting at the breakfast table with my dad going over the NYT stock pages as a kid. We never did come up with an investment strategy. My first stock was CI Mortgage because it paid about $2 a share dividend, and that's about what a plastic model car cost back then. Wish I had never abandoned my dividend driven approach! Horrible investor with about 250K in my 401k account after 26 years. Right now have about 50K in safe cash, 80K split in small/large value and growth indexes. Play with 120K making plays off of 3 really solid SA members. Used to attend Robert Vesco's Christmas party....Ok I was 8, but hey I was there.
Alan Brochstein, CFA, was the first investment professional to devote himself to sharing his observations about the cannabis industry from an investor's perspective publicly. He runs 420 Investor, a subscription-based due diligence platform for investors interested in the publicly-traded cannabis stocks and is also the founder of New Cannabis Ventures, a content aggregation site focused on investors and entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry.
Alan has worked in the securities industry since 1986, primarily with the responsibility for managing investments in institutional environments until he founded AB Analytical Services in 2007 in order to provide independent research and consulting to registered investment advisors. In addition to advising several different hedge funds and investment managers, including Friedberg Investment Management, where he participated as a member of its investment management committee, Alan was also a senior analyst for the independent research firm Management CV. In 2008, he began providing a first-of-its-kind subscription-based service for individual investors, Invest By Model, which offered two different portfolios that investors could replicate in their own accounts for $20 per month. Alan also offered The Analytical Trader at Marketfy, where he used fundamental and technical analysis in a disciplined process to offer specific trade ideas geared towards swing traders.
Alan launched www.420Investor.com in late 2013 as the premier source of information for "Green Rush" investors seeking to capitalize on the proliferation of legalized medical and recreational cannabis. In March 2014, Alan, who is a member of the National Cannabis Industry Association, began to focus solely on the cannabis sector. He launched www.NewCannabisVentures.com in late 2015.
You can follow Alan on Facebook (www.facebook.com/420investor) or on Twitter (https://twitter.com/Invest420). Alan also moderates a large LinkedIn group focused on the cannabis industry, Cannabis Investors & Entrepreneurs (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/6523904)

Some may question the intelligence of the choice... But, figured why save money in a low-yield savings account to pay for school. Why not try it in something more lucrative?
Always willing to give my two cents.

I don’t know how many of you all got asthma here today? If you ever had a asthma attack before your short of breath S.O.B shortness of breath, you wheezing, the only thing you trying to do is get some air. You don’t care about no basketball game, you don’t care about what’s on T.V., you don’t care about nobody calling you, you don’t care about a party. The only thing you care about when you trying to breathe is to get some fresh air. That’s it! And when you get to the point where all you wanna do is be is successful as bad as you wanna breathe then you will be successful. And I’m here to tell you that number one, most of you say you wanna be successful but you don’t want it bad, you just kind of want it. You don’t want it bad than you wanna party. You don’t want it as much as you want to be cool. Most of you don’t want success as much as you want sleep. Some of you lost sleep more than you lost success. And I’m here to tell you today, if your going to be successful you gotta be willing to give up sleep. You gotta be willing to work with 3 hours of sleep – 2 hours of sleep, if you really wanna be successful. Some day your gonna have to stay up 3 days in a row. Because if you go to sleep you might miss the opportunity to be successful.

Proud father of four. Living the American Corporate dream where you can have 7 layoffs in 10 years and survive all of them. Look to invest in good companies that say something about me. Learning to be more patient, learn from my past mistakes. Learn from others and listen to my conscience a little more when it tell me to buy or sell because it is usually right! I am here to help others make money and share in this wealth.
