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.

Live Trading (Day 4): $DUST $SCYX $STEM -$4

I guess I'm a "glass-half-full" kinda guy because even though I basically scratched on my trades today, I don't feel like it was a waste. I was able to stick to my trailing stops and managed my risk to end the day with a small loss of $4 and a small position in $STEM still in play, which frees up my 3rd day trade under the PDT rule. It should line up for me to trade either Thursday or Friday depending on where we are staying in Leavenworth.

My first gap and go trade was in $DUST which was gapping nicely into the open and started to run as soon as the bell rang. I quickly placed an entry at $5.77 and set my trailing stop. Unfortunately it had other plans and whimpered out on me triggering my stop at $5.69 for a loss of $136. I also placed a position in $SCYX with an entry of $2.98. My trailing stop was triggered a while into the trade at $3.02 for a little gain of $132... bringing my daily p/l to -$4.

I was going to call it a day but decided to try and capture some momentum in $STEM which was running nicely. I placed a small 200 share entry at $1.98 with a .20 trailing stop. I almost got hit near the EOD but hung in there to become a overnight swing... which I'm happy with because even if it closes with a loss tomorrow it won't count as a day trade.

Thanks for checking in and reading the post. I hope that this is helpful in some way or motivational.
