I have been self employed for most of my adult life. I have been everything from a Chimney Sweep to a PC and Networking Consultant, I probably spent the greatest amount of my working life as a Real Estate Appraiser. At the age of 50 I returned to school to pursue a new challenge, I became a Registered Nurse and went to work in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at a 500 bed Hospital! I was inspired by my wife who returned to school in her 30's and became an RN, now we work side by side when our schedules permit. I have had an interest in trading futures for several years, however, I need to overcome my lack of patience and my self diagnosed ADD to be successful.
