David's Investment Beginnings

What was the first dollar you ever earned?

When I was 12, I mowed lawns and I had a daily (that's all seven days a week) paper route with 35 customers.

What's been the most satisfying dollar (or dollars) you've ever earned?

When the stock of the electronics company I worked for went from less than $1 to over $50 a share. That's when I sold... and subsequently retired.

What's your favorite way to make money?

What's the best investment advice you've given or ever heard?

Don't try to beat the market, and don't believe anyone who tells you they can.
