Bought TSLA on IPO day at $17 a share I think it was in 2010, and sold a little less than half of my shares last year. Letting the rest ride for at least another 5 years. Yes, it’s one of the best investments I made.

Personal account. Sounds like keeping the giants are the way to go - I like your strategy LFP1 - especially with something like TSLA. I woudln't want something to tank and lose all that potential. So basically 10 years before big cash-out on some of it.

Thanks, it’s rare when you have a lot of confidence in an investment to the point I would email financial analysts who kept telling folks who follow them to short TSLA. I would send them personal correspondence telling them they are making huge mistakes and a disservice to their clients. I should follow up with those guys, if they are still in the business that is.

Six to eight months of going back and forth, I finally caved when the prices went down exponentially

Hi All - I recently took a leap of faith moving to NYC without anything secured. One of my classes is in-person anyway so I had to move at the end of my lease in another state. I’m 29M completing my undergraduate and looking for advice or referrals. My background is in fintech and professional services, but have been out of corporate America for 3 years. Long term goal is law and so I’m aiming for litigation consulting. If anyone has any advice or contacts, I appreciate the help.

Dallas is hosting “America's Outstanding Teen National Competition” (Miss America-Affiliated) this week and they are looking for one CPA to volunteer/support for 1-2 hours a day (Tues-Fri). Their CPA had to back out today with Covid.

If you or someone you know would be interested in volunteering, I can connect you with the organizers. Good opportunity to give back/support a good cause.
