How Much Money Do You Have?
If you’re looking for income reports, screenshots and proof of earnings you’ve come to the wrong place. You’ve got my name. Anyone with an ounce of initiative can verify my earnings.
My portfolio: I have no problem sharing the specifics about certain deals and investments in fact you can check out my current portfolio here.
Why Should I Care What You Say?
Short answer is because I’ve been successful, to a substantial level, as a businessman and investor. Cards on the table though I’m no Jeff Bezos and given my attitude towards money and lifestyle it’s unlikely I ever will be. This blog is as much for me, to help me organise my thoughts, as it is for the people who read it. Don’t fancy it? Don’t read it. No hard feelings.
What Kind Of Investor Are You?
I’m definitely not a trader and it’s rare that I’ll buy individual stocks. I lean towards index funds, buying and holding my investments over the long term and value investing (buying investments that I believe are underpriced). All my property investments are designed primarily to cash flow, all profits from any of my equity based investments are compounded back into the market.
You Mentioned Professional Poker… Hang On WTF?
Yes you can make a living playing online poker professionally. It’s a game which combines both skill and luck. It’s not dissimilar to investing. If you make good decisions then over the long term you’ll come out ahead.
However poker player happens to be one of the most psychologically challenging professions you’ll find. The nature of the game means even the best players have only a small edge over their opponents and short term variance can mean weeks or even months of negative results. Try turning up for a whole month of work and losing money. It’s not exactly my idea of a good time and as I’ve found out there’s a lot more money to be made running your own businesses.
