What are some things that you love?
I truly love the field of economics and finance. I don’t think I would have experienced this level of success without a true passion for my work.
Outside of work, I love to explore more of Philadelphia and its surrounding areas. I moved here out of college, and I’ve always been fascinated by the different cultures and backgrounds that surround me. I feel like no matter how long I have lived here, there’s always something new to experience.
I love good restaurants and time spent relaxing with friends. It’s great to put away the concerns of the day and share a meal with my friends. I love to find new restaurants, especially hole-in-the-wall ethnic places that no one else knows about. Yelp is my best friend when it comes to finding new places to eat.
What is your favorite TV show?
Definitely Game of Thrones. I love the fantasy world of the show and the strong characters. Tyrion Lannister is my favorite character. His ambition and intelligence make him a fascinating character. I started out by reading the books. I’m more than a little disturbed that the plot on the show has advanced past the last book, but I’m willing to see how the story turns out whether it’s on the page or on the screen.
The show’s exploration of politics and power is surprisingly current. The palace intrigues on the show sometimes make me laugh when I’m watching the news and thinking “That’s just like Game of Thrones.”
Describe your typical day.
I get up early, have a healthy breakfast, and work out. Fitness has become more and more important to me as I’ve gotten older. I prefer to work out at home rather than in the competitive atmosphere of the gym. Working out is my meditative time.
After my workout, I do a lot of reading about the day’s trends in the stock market. I do a deep dive in the day’s news and pick out trends that other people might miss. This may mean researching small companies that are just beginning to break out.
After my research time, I take time to budget, forecast, and send emails. I consult with my brokers to make decisions for the day. I try to minimize distractions by keeping emails and phone calls to a specific time of day. That way I can concentrate on my work.
What is your favorite thing about working in your industry?
Finance is always changing. It’s impossible to get bored. I love finding up-and-coming companies that are poised to make a leap into the big time. When I invest in those companies and when they follow my predictions to major success, it’s very satisfying.
I have always loved numbers and statistics. Tracking these fields gives me a personal sense of accomplishment. I can’t deny that I am motivated by my own personal enrichment where my investments are concerned. Taking controlled risks makes my work exciting and can pay off for me in a big way.
What’s one piece of advice you can share with others?
It’s smart to split your investment dollars between risky and less risky pursuits. Especially if you are nearing retirement, you should think about getting into safer investments. If you’re young and just starting out, go ahead and take more risks. Over time, the market will absorb your risks. Take the time to understand your portfolio. Have a dedicated professional helping you, especially if you are just starting out.
