Marc's Investment Beginnings
What was the first dollar you ever earned?
Shoveling snow when I was 9.
What's been the most satisfying dollar (or dollars) you've ever earned?
It's a tie. There was the $300 I made buying my first stock, when I was 22 – I bought 50 shares of Harley Davidson at $18 and sold it a short time later at $24. I thought this stock market stuff was going to be easy. The other one was being paid by Don King to ring announce one of his shows.
What's your favorite way to make money?
Finding stocks that Wall Street has not yet discovered or misunderstands is one of my favorites.
What's the best investment advice you've given or ever heard?
Zig when others zag.
