I am a millennial, an investor and an engineer. Aged 26, I currently manage my investment portfolio that is approaching the 6 figure mark and I have also discovered the various ways to generate monthly cash flow through investing.
However, it wasn't always this way. I was first exposed to investing at the age of 13 when I read the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad.” Since then I always appreciated the importance of investing as a means to achieve financial freedom. It taught me that the old saying of “study hard, get good grades, get a safe secure job” doesn’t work anymore. I continued to read and study about investing, participated in competitions during my college days and attended many seminars and symposiums about investing.
Yet, when I graduated from college, I struggled to save enough money to invest. I had no idea where my money went at the end of each month even though I had not splurged on anything. With great difficulty, I managed to save my first $1000. In spite of that and all those years spent studying investing, I was afraid and confused. I kept going to seminar after seminar hoping to get some “stock tips” from others so that I can make a profitable investment. After piecing together information and “stock tips” from several different sources, I invested my first $1000 that I almost never had and spent the next 4 years watching it decline 90%.
Feeling dejected, I continued to learn as much as I can and spent $6,000 on training programs to become a better investor hoping that the training and knowledge will make me a profitable investor. In spite of spending the money, some of the strategies didn’t work for me. Yet, I kept trying every strategy I could, read as many articles as I could find and sometimes spent 20 hours a week attending events and seminars hoping that somewhere I would find the secret to investing. As if that wasn’t enough, I scoured the whole of Youtube for ideas on how to invest successfully.
Then one day, as though a tipping point had been reached, it all started made sense. I unpacked everything I had learned over almost a decade and distilled it down into a simple and easy to understand theory about what investing is all about and how it works. I used this blueprint to generate almost a 50% return in 7 months and one of my stock tripled in that same time period. Today, my portfolio is almost at the 6 figure mark and having enough money to invest is the least of my worries.
