So I’ve been thinking about starting another blog to replace this one.
Truth is, this current form seems too general for me. I’ve always wanted to have a blog dedicated to business and investing. Basically, something that documents what I’m doing and learning in my business, along with what I’m learning, reading and investing in throughout the day in the markets. Stocks etc.
I’m a tiny fish when it comes to trading stocks and investing but, my ideas are just as relevant as anyone else’s…right? And, I’ve been doing it for years. I realize that qualifies me for nothing but, if you’ve read The Big Short or many other books about the industry, it’s clear that most don’t know any more than I do just sitting in my sheet metal fabrication shop office and paying attention. If you put the time and effort into anything you have a chance to succeed. Do the work!
I am aware that investing isn’t easy. I’ve been doing it for a while and have learned there is more to learn. I’ve been paying my tuition to Mr. Market.
And, as I’ve kinda said on this blog before, I need to keep a record so I can work out my ideas and answer why I’m doing things. Something public to compliment my private journals.
Every day all I do is run my business and learn about the markets. K & E Sheet Metal is the only thing I think about, other than the financial world….maybe a hobby is what I really need? Kidding aside, I truly enjoy it. All of it consumes my day. Well, reading, listening to podcasts and Spotify qualify as well. All of it ties together. Trying to grow a business and a portfolio.
I think the reason I can’t commit to blogging every day is that I’m not focused on what I actually do throughout the day. Which is knock tin and invest in the markets. I run my business and learn. Otherwise, I’m learning about stocks, psychology, philosophy or anything really, trying to grow and be better each day.
I’m 40. I own a micro-business and I invest in the markets. All from a small sheet metal fabrication shop in Upstate New York.
Maybe this is still just the same blog as before, just with more focus. The same blog but with more emphasis on helping others like me with what I’ve already learned about business and investing as the little guy.
All of this stuff is on my mind all the time. Why not share it. And share the great things I find that have and do help me along the way. Maybe it’s been done. But who cares. If it helps one person it’s worth it. If it helps me become a better business owner and investor it’s worth it.
I’ve been a tradesman all my life. I have been fabricating ductwork for over 20 years. Maybe it’s time to focus a bit more on becoming another kind of tradesman. One that can only help my company and business acumen.
I have no idea where this goes, or if it goes. But I’m interested in something again…Could be I’m just batshit insane!
Ever have a day where a thought just consumes you?
BTW…this is the top 😉
