Alex's Investment Beginnings
What was the first dollar you ever earned?
Pulling my Dad's pull cart on the golf course for ten cents a hole when I was seven. I made my first dollar right after the turn.
What's been the most satisfying dollar (or dollars) you've ever earned?
The most satisfying money I've ever earned came from compound interest. Why not let your money do the heavy lifting?
What's your favorite way to make money?
Favorite way to make money? The stock market, of course. It's the quickest, easiest, most liquid, and least expensive way to gain an ownership stake in a profitable business.
What's the best investment advice you've given or ever heard?
Buy when others are despondently selling. Sell when others are enthusiastically buying. (John Templeton)
