I have been a trader for seven years. I don't work for a Wall Street bank. I have been self taught with what I could find: online, in book, and experience.
I have been a house flipper for seven years. I was there when the market bottomed in 2011 and participated and increased the value of numerous neighborhoods as I would buy a house at a discounted price and give a a new touch. I didn't flip one house which didn't increase the comp's in the neighborhood by 10% when I was done.
