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.

1 EPIC fail and 1 GREAT WIN!

I guess I'm a bit of a Ying and Yang trader this week... my position and modified plan with $TPAC failed me epically -$88.00 with -52.38%. I have no one to blame but myself and it did some serious damages to my E-trade account. That said, it did not go wasted. I am learning and will take that loss and take a long hard look at what went wrong.

#1: Not enough DD on the stock or the promoters
#2: As soon as the trade deviated from my plan I should have cut losses and walked, especially with no trailing stops available.
#3: Modifying a plan just because it appears a promotion is starting isn't okay... Always verify and look at the risk / reward.

One small blessing is that it was my E-Trade account with minimized the overall losses somewhat. Not sure if I should deal with the loss and look at building it up from the now balance of $98 or add a little funds to get it back to $200. 

On the other side of the penny however I had an awesome momentum trade with $AXXE.

Yep, entered the trade with 4,500 shares at 0.12 ea. gained 29.17% and took profits with 3,500 shares. Since I had originally planned on this being a swing I decided to leave 1,000 shares on the table over night to see if it gaps up or spikes with morning momentum. ShareBuilder isn't allowing a trailing stop so I'm watching this one closely. I AM NOT REPEATING $TPAC!!!

Seems to be heavy promotions neat the EOD and after market. I'm leery since that is the same thing I saw with $TPAC. If it's the promoters looking to get a pre-market spike and sell of in the AM I'll be ready to pull out with profits. Only one more trade this week so I'm out tomorrow regardless.
