21 years old, full time student, not a lot of cash to play around with in investments yet ($2000-ish), no student loans
-Primerica: I was picked up in 2011. I joined a year ago to learn everything I could about finance, not to be a salesman (yet). I feel like I got a steal, because the education I learned was priceless and cheaper than any college class at my state school. Today I hold a life, health, and accident insurance license, a series 6, and I'm just about at the finish line to take the examination for my series 63 this month. In the end, I'm still not sure if I want to become involved further with this company. But for education's sake, this is a gold mine opportunity for a person like me.
-Rich Dad Poor Dad: I went to a 3-day seminar and was greatly turned on to options trading. The way my speaker presented options seemed to me like the aggressive-no-wussies-allowed attitude of trading, and I kinda like that. I was not going to pay 20-80K for classes though. I figure if Im resourceful enough I can find that information/mentorship elsewhere.
-Various books: Jim Crammer, The little book that beats the market, rich dad poor dad, Trading in the shadow of smart money (tradeguider.com), various articles and guides, think and grow rich. Dale Carnegie, Napolean Hill, Anthony Robbins, etc etc.
The finish line for me is this, let me paint the picture:
-Have a CFP
-rent-out real estate homes, buy 4 green houses, 1 red hotel (monopoly)
-Options trading experience and knowledge for personal gain
-Work for a quality company and build passive income with AUM
-Paintball, sports, snowboarding, piano, gym, beach, concerts, casinos (I like the flashy atmosphere for drinks, Im not a big gambler), road trips, camping, boating, dancing, self education.. so much more but this is off the top of my head
