What was your first job and how has it contributed to your investing career?

I manually set up bowling pins when I was six at the local bowling alley on the beach. I was paid in candy. I remember it was fun, and that the more impulse control I showed, the more my credit at the counter grew. My friends cashed out after every game; I waited for days and days before cashing in to get the biggest payout. That same patience has served me well as an investor.

How did you make your first foray into investing and what did you take away from that experience?

I made my first real foray into the stock markets during the dotcom era. It was almost impossible to lose money at the time, and I did well, in spite of myself. After the dotcom bubble burst, I discovered how easy it was to lose money. It’s also when I learned how important it is to really understand what it is you’re investing in.

What has been the most memorable moment in your investing career?

My most memorable stock market moment is better viewed in hindsight. My friend’s father lost an enormous amount of money on Black Monday (October 19, 1987). He told me the loss was all on paper, and he would make it all back. It took a couple of years, but he was right. It didn’t mean much to me at the time, but since then, it has taught me about stock market cycles and the importance of having a diversified portfolio.
