I work as a dishwasher, parking lot attendant and a gold mine, learned to trade in the stock market after not being able to work due to workplace accidents. I decide to share my knowledge in the markets and wrote my book The Illiterate Investor.
I agree with you, Rene. The risk is greater. My son invested in penny stocks and lost everything. I guess it's kind of like Las Vegas. If you win once, cash in your chips and walk away while you're ahead, huh?!
