Welcome to my blog!

I've worn many hats during my entrepreneurial journey, including writing and creating whiteboard videos, marketing, investor relations (Blurbeo), owning and managing my own vapor pen brand (TouchESubject), servicing the real estate market and other clients as the CEO of Puget Sound Field Inspections, founded CLV Investments LLC, and currently holding a position with Byte Me LLC as a Digital Marketing Consultant.

This blog was originally started as a way for me to track my progress in trading stocks, but it's has since morphed into much more. I now use it as a window into what I'm doing to reach my goal of financial freedom. You're going to see what I'm doing to create multiple streams of income, articles and interviews that are business related or featuring other entrepreneurs, and most importantly you're going to get to know me and hopefully I can inspire you to pursue your own dreams

I'm a very driven individual with a passion for customer service and improving our communities.

Please feel free to connect. I'd love to do business with you.

EOD Update 07-23-14: Trailing Stop Triggered

Today was another wild day for $GLUU and we saw a pretty large mid-day dip that pulled us all the way down to $6.67 a share. This of course pulled the trigger on my trailing stop with my 1st position's 8% stop and killed the trade @ $7.00.

I'm a little bummed because the stock recovered as it likely would and now my position for the ER is a little over half the size. But I can't get too mad since the stop did it's job and locked in profits of 15.70% gains!!!

It'll be fun to tally up the wins and losses from the last couple of trades and see where my account is sitting. I liquidated the other stocks I had in the IRA and will be trading with a full capital. This will allow me to trade with $300 to $400 positions and have enough to cover an 8% trailing stop from the get go... no freeride waiting time. Also, when factoring the commission per trade I'll only need 4% to 5% gains to break even vs trading with $100 to $200 positions were a near 20% gain is needed to cover commissions. With swing trades, a 4% to 5% gain is a lot easier to see and 6%+ gains over the course of 3 to 10 days is likely.
