Hello pips, you can call me Hector.
I’m originally from Colombia but have been a Floridian since 2010. I go to college at FAU, where I’ll be earning my Bachelor’s in business/finance hopefully by 2023 or earlier. I have no trading experience yet, but I can defend myself around the jargon and to some extent understand trading strategies. Growing up, I was a really aloof child – the last thing I thought I’d end up in was finance. But when I was a seventeen or eighteen, I jumped on the self-improvement wagon and started reading more books. By some twist of fate, I ended up reading “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki, and I believe you guys all know how it goes from there. I was both grateful and appalled at the same time: glad that someone showed me this whole new world of possibility, but freaking pissed at the fact that I’d been oblivious to it for 17 years. Regardless, I knew I had a lot more to learn, so I’ve been catching up my knowledge for the last few years.
Today I’m almost 20 years old and living the college life as I type this. My hopes and dreams involve getting my family out of all debt and building a firm foundation of assets so that future generations of my lineage will never have to stress and worry about money like I have. I’m also seeking to grow as a person, and to stretch my comfort zone as often as possible so that my life doesn’t end up being just another casualty among seven billion – in less dramatic phrasing, I want my life to be memorable.
I hope to meet like-minded people on here who can boost me (and I them) into a more productive lifestyle than just living to pay the bills. My first immediate goal: graduate from the School of Pipsology and graduate from University (DOUBLE DEGREE!).
I’ll be around here (and I mean like, lots) edumucating myself, getting familiar with the platform and whatnot. It’s nice to be among people who don’t settle for less, so I wish you all the best, you hustlers.
