How I can help you
I can help you to increase the chances of your business success by thinking independently, definitively and outside the box. As a physician, a 40 year real estate investor, and stock investor, I have always used my creativity, ingenuity, and positive attitude to think of strategies necessary to insure my success. I've always been self employeed, and investing in general fascinates me. Whenever I face a challenge, my immediate response is to find a way to overcome it. Self-improvement, achievement, and financial success are fundamental to everything I do.
I have always been intrigued, even fascinated by how money works and how making money and paying taxes are inextricably tied to each other. What initially was intimidating to me soon became another one of life's challenges -- an exercise in learning and educating myself to succeed at whatever I tried to do. Early in my careet I faced two choices. Either to succeed or fail. Since failure was never an option, I always figured out just what to do be not only successful, but unmistakably and hugely successful.
I had been a practicing physician for 15 years, after which I decided to turn my part time passion for real estate investing into a full time pursuit. At age 44, I stopped practicing medicine all together, educated myself about stock investing, and devoted many years studying the stock market through Better Investing. A national organization, Better Investing focused on individual investor and stock club education programs and I served as President of the Philadelphia Chapter for 6 years. In addition to both Real Estate Investing and investing in the stock market, I have started to learn how to trade options.
I am mostly self-taught, and for all my adult life have been self-employed. I was told by my Grandmother as a child to become self-employed as an adult. (I always listened to my Grandmother, she was perhaps the smartest women I ever met.) I was a great observer of successful entrepreneurs as I got older and was just challenged to learn how to become successful in my own right. I am relatively risk adverse and have been able to live off of my investments, both in real estate and stock investments, for the last 25 years.
There are really only two choices to make in life. To either succeed or fail. Since failure was never an option for me, success was my motivating factor. The tools that I have learned have served me exceedingly well in my lifetime. They have helped me grow from just getting by to becoming an extremely successful entrepreneur. I know that I can help you to succeed likewise. I look forward to mentoring you and helping you increase your likelihood of success.
