THIS year my family has decided it was a year to do HARD things:
I wanted to get up at 4:30 AM to exercise, study scriptures and market, 5:30 every

Summer project cut down 100’ to 115’ cottonwood trees

Hike to the Havasupai Falls with brothers this year

Pay off all debt except homes

Bring on two new advisors – Keve close to having Jeffrey T Smith come on board


Let me go over things that I encountered last week while hiking to the Havasupai Falls in the Grand Canyon:


1st: “I want to do what you are doing because it is so easy.”


It’s not easy and you can’t learn to be successful managing money doing it as a hobby

Because you were successful once on a single trade doesn’t mean you have it down

Extreme Pressure must become your friend


2nd:  Experts don’t know S#%@ so don’t rely on them


3rd:  Learn the rule of losses



4th:  Running from the market or going to cash means you have NO investment strategy because the market will not only jerk you around but teach you not to be a Jerk!


5th:  Sometimes there just is not a great time for a trade.  Don’t ever have to push for a trade even though you think you can make money no matter what direction a stock moves.


6th:  Mistakes (Errors) happen because you can’t predict the future.
