Can't remember. But it probably involved a bet with one of my friends. In terms of the first dollar I earned that was reported on a W-2, it was flipping pizzas in Southern California.

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

Every last one I earned as a minor before I was subject to taxation.

What's your favorite way to make money?

While I'm sleeping. I'm a big believer in income investments. And nothing beats waking up to find out another check was deposited into your account.

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

Be humble trading the markets or be humbled trading the markets.
