If you believe in the company there is usually more upside and don’t have to worry about fees. Just more risk.

As a law student interested in going into the field I’ve seen a lot of negative comments saying that only lawyers who couldn’t get into big law go into PA. Although I know most people try to get into big law initially, it is very competitive and many don’t stay past 2-3 years. You certainly don’t make as much going into PA as a lawyer but the pay is certainly not bad and the WLB is generally much better. Can anyone speak to how they got into PA and if you would rather be working in Big Law

How much money/profit do you actually take out from active trading account in a year? I’ve realized over the years, I just keep adding to it and never really draw down and just end up being a buy and hold because I don’t need the cash or pay taxes. (Note: my account is small and I’ve gone from 500$->30K over 5-6 years)
