Find Director 1, buy him all the coffee he can drink, and soak it all in. The advice, not the coffee. Also, RM is not rocket science. Nobody wants a relationship with a robot. Just be your most confident self, and if people don't like that, it's possibly not for you.

I found out today that my mid-70s mother converted the $40K or so she got when she and my dad divorced in the 90s to a net worth of almost $1M today. She got a little bit of money when my grandparents died, but she essentially did it on her own with some savvy investments and living very frugally (she was a SAHM and never had a paying job). My dad was TERRIBLE with money, so I’m especially proud of her for figuring out how to come out ahead. I told her she needs to write a book. Go Mom!

Hello all! I'm 26, I studied economics but I don't know why I'm not much into investing/trading. Someone else like this? I recognize this is not a very good approach for someone with money "knowledge" and I would like to change this mindset. My main weakness is that I easily get bored of following the market and that I do not see big opportunities. Any advice? Where to start learning, general advice for LT and ST investments, things you learnt, books that changed your pov on the topic etc. Thx!
