I am 49 years old, married for the second time (about a year now) work in I.T. and hate it!
Been sim trading for about 6 years when I started with Forex; moved to futures index about 3 years ago. Looking to exit out of the "rat race" early, but isn't everyone...LOL
Sign is gemini. Very spiritually minded. I guess that accounts for why I wanted to become a priest when I was 18. Read the bible twice, disliked very much the way God was portrayed. Started reading The Course in Miracles about 10 years ago and LOVE IT.It has truely centered me in my journey of life.
Raised very poor by a single parent, became a "self directed" over-achiever early on by harnessing my creative thoughts to make goal completion easier. I.E. read a book by John Bears back in the 80's Called "How to get a conventional degree unconventionly" Over the course of 2.5 years took a zillion tests sent by mail and achieved an accredited bachelors degree; this was before internet colleges existed.
Worked on Wall Street (New York Stock exchange) as a Systems technician from 88-97
Then for J.P. Morgan suporting the trading community. Along the way I got the real-estate bug from those late nite Infomercials and preceeded to purchase "slum" properties,(all I could afford) fixed them up and rented them out. Did this for a few years, lots of work, finally got rid of them with some finanical losses.
later owned a soda/snack vending machine company (inspired by another late nite infomercial) make a little money until the compressors on the soda units started going on the blink! sold everything to a guy who had 200 machines. Spent the $$ traveling extensively all over the U.S. including a long 3 month stay in Hawaii
Bought my final property in a little picture post-card town in New Jersey called Cranford.
Real paradise there, sold after my divorce to wiife#1. Dream of moving back and maybe living there until the Good lord brings me home. Can only achieve this if I can generate income from my
