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?
The old fashion way: Earning it.
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.
