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.

Trading Blind in a Red Market = Duh... A Loss!

Yeah, the title says it all. My paper trades for today were pretty epic losses even though I stuck to my trading plans and got out before the EOD. Both $MXPT and $ICAD crumbled under the red markets today. That combined with trading blind due to no internet at home caused some larger losses than I'd like to see.

But as with the other losing paper trades I've seen lately, it is a great lesson and confidence boost to see how well the MACD and AO indicators on the 15min chart are going to work for risk management. There will be meat left on the table most of the time because the indicators seem to trigger an exit before the tickers really dive, but I'm okay with taking medium to small gains vs big losses because I'm swinging for the fence.

Timothy Sykes has said before that you're better off making singles and doubles consistently rather than always going for homeruns and striking out.

I'm quickly seeing how important it is for risk management and not taking unnecessary losses because of holding too long.
