About Me
Make stuff with light and computers work good
Why I Joined
Best tool to track net worth since networthiq died
Best Financial Decision
Buying a condo when I was 22 "because I didn't want a landlord."
Worst Financial Decision
Not trusting my gut, taking too few risks, and being way too greedy with option trades.
Current Investing Strategy
Build as much equity as possible while keeping my family safe and prospering. Would likely "retire" at NW=5M hopefully will get there sooner rather than later.
How do you manage your finances?
I try to spread out risk as widely as possible by taking many positions in various sectors. Use logic to predict future outcomes, example: AIG bailout. Minimize fees and taxes as much as possible without having all my money unavailable till too old. Maintain a healthy emergency fund for the family!
What tools do you use?
Home brew excel spreadsheets, automated web access, this. The internet to research companies and ideas.
I need financial help with...
Pretty concerned any "help" would come with strings attached. I seem to do pretty well on my own, but have recently been reading up on paying for retirement strategies, pretty interesting all the variables to consider.
Favorite Authors
I thought Suze Orman was pretty fun to watch... DENIED! That rich dad poor dad had some good ideas too.
Favorite Books
The Foundation Series, some Heinlein, Atlas Shrugged was ok
Favorite Movies
Star Wars, Labyrinth, The Goonies, Tron
