$1,000,000 before 30

My goal is to achieve a net worth of 1,000,000 before turning 30.

As of 5/14/17

  • Age: 25
  • Net Worth: 30,000

What are some reasons why?

  • Gain the skills necessary to be self sufficient
  • Live life on my own terms
  • Provide for the ones I love
  • Travel the world
  • Transition from a linear to exponential return on time

Without supplemental income on top of my current salary, I will not reach 1 million in the remaining 1607 days.

What have you tried to supplement income?

  • Cryptocurrency (Doge, Aurora & Bitcoin) Buy and Sell (2014)
    • Flat
  • Amazon FBA retail arbitrage (August 2016 – November 2016)
    • Revenue: 3,400
    • Expenses: (4,200)
  • Ticket Scalping (January 2016 to March 2017)
    • Revenue: 3,200
    • Expenses: (3,300) – unfortunately scammed on an $800 sale
  • Index Futures Day Trading (January 2017 – Present)
    • Starting paper account balance: $100,000
    • Current paper account balance: $151,000

Trading has worked for me so far, I have lost money or held flat on my other endeavors.

I have read through John F. Carter’s “Mastering the Trade” and am working through John J. Murphy’s technical analysis bible, “Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets”.

I am currently working through Tim Grittani’s Trading Tickers videos to further my education on actively trading a wider range of securities daily.
