Nobody will ever make a series through life without making
Error or judgment error.
I know I've shared it. Error is a part of life.

It is important that I share with you the valuable lessons I have learned

My business investment from $ 100 a year to $ 200,000
I learned how to make money but no clue how to manage
Knowing me, we'll call her Joni, mention me

Expected that it will soon split or triple the price
Within a few months. She told me she was investing in her life
Save as much as you can buy, I should do
I thought, when I saved the money to buy my
Mom a new house, so I thought, hey, if I took $ 30,000 I had
Save and buy the stock – it's three times that would be

ideas how to do it. So what did I do?
I heard my UPS guy (yes, my UPS guy) to invest in stocks, so I
Ask him how to buy a stock. He told me to go to XXX brokers
Towns (who will remain unnamed) and open an account. (error
So I went to the broker and he eagerly helped me open an account
He completed the transaction and bought me $ 30,000
Specific stock. (Error # 3)
Within a few months, share prices plummeted from
$ 30,000 down to $ 400. This is not a typo, it has gone
I'm very angry.
I am very pleased with the other parties to guide me in creating one
Results. I have a good reason to be angry. I feel cheated. I
Means that I later learned that brokers violated the law and should never be

I want to share with you because I want you to pause and think
On this point, the next time you experience a challenge, a difficult one

Without doing my diligent research, I invested too much in my first
Trade, I'll take a step back and re-evaluate my approach next

Change Catalyst = I appear to Victor because I am asking for my power
Change the present and the future by taking responsibility
You see, I can easily delegate responsibility to others.
If I do, I will never learn the lesson. I
Never changed. Although this is not easy, after reading
It, I know there are some things I can do
Whenever you blame yourself for your responsibilities,

Let them empower you

The fact remains that I still lost $ 29,600.
But it will not hurt.
It turns out to be a blessing to me many times
When you change the way you look at things,
