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.

The Will of the People Be Damned

by David Fessler

Most people are afraid of change. Right now, automobile dealers across the U.S. are afraid of Elon Musk. Musk is the brilliant CEO of Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA). His outside-the-box thinking with regard to car sales has left dealers "all dressed up with no place to go." Read On…
