2017 Goals


Cracking into this right now...

Probably will only be partly written today but let's get into it...

Definitely having a financial goal in 2017... and I am going to make it quite a bit bigger than 2016. About 50% bigger.

I believe that I have the ability to make a lot of money in shares... and I may well expand into other areas too.

Success and failure take the same time so when I'm in the 'money zone' I want to really push it...

Mutual Fulfillment With High Value People

This year I am going to give myself a high score if I have met more great people IN PERSON. I met Chris Bailey this year and that was cool. Even if it means taking a bit of 'time off work' I am going to make more of an effort to meet great people in person.

I already have great people I know- I am willing to meet more great people.

Health and Fitness

Again no alcohol or drugs etc but I'm going to make a real effort with diet and fitness.

Daily press ups, more walking and running. Interested in learning more self defense- I already do some shadow boxing. There are ruthless people out there but I won't back down if threatened.

I think 2017 will be a GREAT YEAR :).

Potentially I am still looking for a lodger for Newbury Walk- rent around £280 per month plus half of bills. Has to be the right person- have had quite a bit of interest so far.

I honestly get bored when it's a 'none trading day' in shares... will be doing share analysis today. In a way it's good to have a chance to research more yet I can't wait for the market to open again!

2016 Goal Review


Blasting this out on CHRISTMAS DAY... just another goal day for me.

So let's get right into the goal review...

Financial Goal

Over achieved this. Shares have done very well this year... my belief and timing in the recovery of oil has paid off. You can check out a post back in January 2016... I called almost the exact bottom of it. I invested more money in BP and Shell this year and it's paid off in capital growth and dividends. Bought some BP at 348 including costs and they're over 500 now. With more money I would have invested more. BP is my biggest share holding now and I have a 5 figures sum in Shell too.

Eventually oil will get back to over $100 dollars again... might take quite a while but it will happen. These shares are still at least holds at these prices.

I've spent quite a lot of this year working for a FTSE 100 company and performed pretty well so that's helped too.

10/10

Exercise Well and Have a Healthy Diet

This one has been mixed. Again I still get points for having no alcohol, tobacco or drugs but my diet and exercise could have been better. I will continue to work on this.

6.5/10

Mutual Fulfillment With High Value People

So let's get right into this one...

Overall I have done pretty well on this one. My strategy of spending more time with quality people I already know has paid off well and I have attracted other good people into my life. I think this is really important... people who add value and you can help get mutual fulfillment with will always be there when you need them.

And this section is going to contain some free advertising for Financial Orbit because Chris Bailey is the person other than my family who helped me the most this year. Two billion pounds... it's hard to even IMAGINE that kind of money. A few years ago I never could have imagined that someone who managed that amount of money would give me free financial advice.

Chris works LONG HOURS yet will always aim to chat to me when he can- and when he does it is full of good advice I can reread again. That's a trait of practically all successful people... they all put in a lot of hours and energy. But Chris puts in more hours than anyone else I know... sometimes he doesn't even sleep for 40 hours.

And it makes me think back to a Brian Tracy saying "Success and failure take the same time." That's paraphrased. The time will pass anyway. Everyone has 24 hours in a day, both you and Warren Buffet. So many people in the UK waste time watch too much TV etc and even I'm guilty of that to an extent.

When you have something that is a passion or vocation it's not even work. You have more energy to do it because you love doing it. And I do... well love isn't the right word but I put a lot of time and energy into shares. And now I have a big six figure share portfolio. 13 years ago writing Playing to Win I never dreamed of that. I dreamed of being a famous writer... and I have made that to an extent but there is much more to come and much more I have to write.

Anyway I need to do more to add value to Chris... I give free publicity but should do more. I guess when you get to a certain level you enjoy teaching and helping people progress so I am very lucky to have his help. His share performance has been great in 2016 and he gives a lot of free great advice that if you follow will make you money. He has a permanent link on my site now.

Also I want to say thanks to Stevie PUA at Stevie PUA

A great friend for over 12 years and a man with the highest verbal and social intelligence I know. Back in the UK now after teaching worldwide... aiming to buy a house which I know he will do. A great writer and mind and I'm very lucky to know him. I will be helping him in his 2017 goals and more with shares too.

Just because I haven't mentioned you directly by name don't think I don't appreciate all the other people who have helped me too. There are quite a large number of those. Being honest Sebastian (he changed his name) is the next one along... he's too cool for social media so doesn't do it so can't put a link up. A proven winner... and when I chat to him it's like a flood of great advice that flows out that I read again and again.

OK so that's the positive part... now onto another part.

Of course there are going to be people who lie and cheat me. It's free to lie. The world can be a ruthless place. Yet if you have goals and a strong mind you can win...

But when people do lie, threaten or cheat me... I don't turn the other cheek. It isn't a good idea to lie, threaten or cheat me.

Anyway... let's just mention one person directly by name.

And that person is Karlina Rose Shaw.

This is quite hard to write but I feel I have to. For myself more than anything.

Karlina is a smart girl who's gone through the public sector in the UK well. She is lucky in a way that the NHS is around now... life would have been different for her if she lived 70 years ago. She might have kids by now and be a housewife. She has very high verbal and social intelligence. Overall when you're talking looks, verbal and social intelligence probably the highest quality girl I've seen.

Yet... a ruthless streak too.

And I have one, lots of people do. But I am never ruthless to people who don't deserve it. I will never deliberately ignore someone I've known for over five years. I will at least be sociable with them.

And she hasn't even done anything BAD to me, let's be honest. But maybe this will serve as a wakeup call that it's at least nice to be sociable with people you've known for years. Karlina reads this blog so I wonder what her reaction will be...

Anyway I've said it now. There are plenty of other girls out there... being with high quality ones though, the only kind I would like a relationship with, can be challenging. It's like... you can only spend so much time on girls and women and so much time making money. Sometimes this year I have been so tired from making money I haven't had the energy to go out... hope to get that more in balance in 2017.

Overall though I am pleased with my mutual fulfillment with high quality people this year and look forward to 2017.

8.2/10

Research and Aim to Buy a Buy to Let Property

I have put quite a lot of time into researching this and have lots of decent LinkedIn connections who are pro property investors. At the moment though I would have to sell some of my shares if I was going to do this which I don't want to do. My share performance has been very good his year so it's alright I haven't bought a buy to let property. At the same time though... you can have highly undervalued shares and highly undervalued properties. If you buy a property at the right price in the long term it will rise in value- it is more 'secure' than shares in that way.

Ideally I still would like to own buy to let properties or invest in houses in general.

The house I played a big part in doing buy to let... I live in it now. So that gives me extra experience too.

I'm not scoring myself on this as I deliberately chose to put money in shares instead.

Anyway... THANKS FOR READING! Goal review for 2017 will be written soon.



Prelude to Goal Review


And yeah OVER 65,000 VIEWS on www.markhowitt.blogspot.com this year. People from countries I've never even heard of read. So... I'm not exactly 'mega world famous' but known worldwide in some ways. May write part of my 2016 goal review today... tempted to make it a bit personal and 'hard hitting' in places... we'll see. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO'S SUPPORTED ME THIS YEAR... and for those who haven't, or who have lied, threatened or cheated me... I remember you too. Good year overall though and 2017 could well be EVEN BETTER :)

Christmas day is goal day :) Have poker and will be doing some share analysis. 2016 has been a great year for my share investing and 2017 could well be even better!

More Writing To Come


So we're at around 65,000 views on this site now...

Over 100,000 views on my share articles on other sites... by other names, I'm known and have been known on the internet in other guises...

There is more to come. 3 years ago I never would have imagined I'd get over 100,000 views on my share articles. That's more people than I've ever met in my life.

When I've been talking to people... before I've told them that some of the best writers in the past were never even known until death. Plato, nobody really knew him. Nietzsche, nobody really knew him.

I'm lucky that I'm living in an age where all across the globe people can read my writing.

At the same time I'm not going to be selfless. A lot of writers have died poor. Some died starving. Orwell died at about 47.

When you look at John Updike... one of the greatest writers ever, he kept doing it year after year, book after book. Bernard Cornwell produces a book every year at least. They're in it for the long game, and they know that the only way to be great is to write practically every day.

Now obviously I am NOWHERE NEAR AS GOOD as any of these writers... but I still want to be the best I can be. I still want to produce original content. Maybe people will read my writing after my death, maybe they won't. Either way I love the flow of writing while I'm alive.

I want to achieve a lot in my life... but I will always make time to write more. Thank you for reading.

As I mentioned to Chris Bailey, I think there may well have been more visitors if free parking had been offered, but it's perfectly understandable that this wasn't offered as parking in Leeds City Centre is quite pricey! I wish I had spent more time there- lots of interesting stands and talks but I only had chance to visit a few of them as I was working later in the day- only just got home now. I have plenty of notes to review and reading material to get through.

I probably should have been more proactive in 'cold approaching' people too as there were lots of interesting people there. I did reasonably well though and enjoyed chatting. Brought my dad along (thus saving on the actual petrol money and parking spent by me) he had more time there and enjoyed it too.

Buy to Let


I've spent a lot of time this year researching buy to let, as well as practically dealing with a lying tenant (you may know who she/they are!) I have the practical experience of living in and having improved and home now but I really do want to buy my own home. I have the money to do it, but most of it is in shares and I would only sell some if I felt they were overvalued. I have decent ideas but obviously need more practical experience of buying houses. I will keep working on this goal and accomplish!

Leeds Investor Show


My father (Richard Howitt) and I will be attending the Leeds Investor Show on Tuesday 22 November. Looking forward to meeting interesting people!

US Elections


This result shows again how you should trust your instincts and not 'polls'. The polls yet again are showed to be biased and not take into account enough 'real people'. They're possibly even biased and maybe purposefully biased. I could tell from the sheer numbers of people at his rallies that Trump was likely to win and my instincts proved to be correct again. Donald Trump is far from perfect but he has a lot of good policies. Interesting to see how this plays out...

To be honest with you... sometimes I feel like a money making machine. I come home from work to find my shares have gone up (much more than the money I got in my job and more than most people earn in a week)... then win at poker and do online surveys.

Becoming Different


Been watching some interesting vids today... one millionaire said "You will not be able to do it." Because the 'you' that hasn't done your goal hasn't done it. So you have to do different things and become a different person. I feel like I do have potential but I have to push my comfort zone and do new things. Winning at poker today and some of my shares are doing very well Shell, BP, BATS, Glaxo... every day is goal day.

Buy To Let


Thinking more about buy to let... I want to do this more now. I am even potentially prepared to sell some of my shares to do this. I'll be doing it in the Huddersfield area where I've lived all my life for fairly low value properties. I can buy one property outright myself but would be happy to hear from other investors who would want to own a small part of it. I have done a reasonable amount of research into buy to let and know people who are far better at it than me so hopefully writing this will spark some interest from them!

Why A Lot of 'The Media' was biased Towards a Remain Vote in the EU Election


Blasting this one out early in the morning...

I would quite like to make this a longer more detailed article where I may get paid for it because it's a very interesting concept... but getting paid for writing is VERY HARD. I'm opting to blast it out while it's fresh in my mind because it might benefit me and you anyway...

Coming up to the last week of the week of the referendum for the UK's membership of the EU most of the media were reporting about how practically all of the 'opinion polls' suggested the UK would remain in the EU. There was a lot of talk about 'opinion polls' in the lead up to the vote. As with the General Election, they were inaccurate.

Quick note on the validity of opinion polls. You can never rely on them too much. They take a relatively small sample, a few hundred people perhaps, and from their responses they try and predict how a WHOLE NATION will vote. There are 65 million people in the UK now and around 40 million voters. Each is different person with different views.

It's far better to look at the actual results of past elections. In the last EU elections UKIP got more votes than any other party. They also got 4 million votes in the last general election. The Conservative party got the most votes in the last election and plenty of Tories are Eurosceptic. And a lot of Labour voters or voters in traditional 'Labour areas' are too. This suggests a lot of 'anti EU' feeling in the UK.

Anyway... why do I think a lot of the traditional 'TV' media at least was biased towards wanting or leading people to believe that a vote for remaining in the EU was best? Two main reasons I think. One... a lot of TV media such as ITV and Sky News are paid for by advertising... a lot from companies that would benefit from being in the EU like HSBC or LLoyds. Now it may be 'subconscious' and I wouldn't say it was blatantly overt but it isn't a good idea for these companies to annoy their paymasters. The BBC actually gets funding from the EU as well.

And perhaps the people in the traditional media are more likely to favour a Remain vote themselves. A lot of it is based in London which as a city voted to Remain. People are usually convinced that their own ideas are 'right'. It could well be a benefit to them personally if the UK remained in the EU. The FT was overtly in favour of Britain being in the EU and said that we would probably vote to Remain. Of course people like Peter Mandleson and others funded by the EU such as many MEPs are going to advocate a Remain view.

And have you noticed that once the result has been released the traditional or mainstream media has been quite... somber? In general you could describe the tone as worried.

Anyway... I'm doing poker at the same time so time to wrap this article up for now. A few key points- just because the mainstream media want something to be true doesn't mean that it is. Everyone is doing what they think is best for themselves- people will produce things to try and make you believe what they believe sometimes. It would have been better for me to trust my instincts and knowledge that the country was going to vote Leave and sold some of my shares accordingly.

Quick edit... I understand there are pros and cons of being in the EU... just feel that this concept is interesting to explore.

Shares


Some of my shares are killing it... BP, Shell, BATS, Glaxo... I think the 'next level' for me as a share investor is somehow 'working out' which shares are going to go up or down sharply then pile cash into them. I'm OK at getting into 'long term' good value shares but have plenty more to learn. At least I'm up at least £2500 today...

Long Term Buy and Hold


It's fine being a 'long term buy and hold' investor generally but with events like this you have to know when to sell. I told myself this would potentially be a time to sell (yesterday) a long time ago but I didn't do it. I have to promise myself that if an event like this comes around in the future I will sell before the drop.

I mean there's no point being buy and hold forever because eventually I'll die and need to sell at some point anyway.

Instincts


If I'm going to 'take anything' out of this result it should be to trust my instincts not the 'mass media'. I should have sold practically all my shares yesterday but since I haven't sold for over 9 years it's almost like I don't know how to sell. Selling yesterday and possibly buying back today would have been a good move.

Voted Remain


I have voted to Remain in the EU. This was probably the most difficult political decision of my life, based on many hours of research. Being directly honest with you, it was my position as a share investor that was the key factor. If we remain in the EU shares will continue to go up if we leave they will fall down sharply at least in the short term. If you're a share investor you probably know this already, but I was shocked just how much the market went down just at the THOUGHT we could leave the EU.

There also could be economic issues if we leave the EU. Plenty of companies have said so, but to be honest with you Martin Lewis and Chris Bailey believing there could be problems leads me to believe there at least could be. I can see how for the companies I partly own it could cause problems anyway.

I can understand why people might vote for Brexit. I am no fan at all of mass immigration. We pay too much to Brussles and they impose too many laws. I think this will be a close result either way- so your vote really does count in this election. Hundreds of people just from Poland read my last EU article...

I hope the closeness of this election will lead the UK to implement a tougher immigration policy. This may be difficult but with nearly half or just over half of voters thinking they should leave the EU they must try.

Anyway at least you know how I voted now. Probably the main thing you can take from this article is that if you're a share investor it's safer for you personally at the moment to vote Remain.

Newbury Walk


Posting this now...

At some point, possibly September this year, 12 Newbury Walk will be available either as a whole property or for one tenant in that property.

The rent will be around £540 for the whole property or around £280 for one tenant. The deposit will be about five weeks rent.

This is a good opportunity for you. The property cost £124,000 and improvements have been made to it since then. The property has 2 bedrooms, new boiler, good condition and a free parking space. There is an alarm system and I'm considering investing in CCTV for the property. There is also free visitor parking. It's a new build with a water meter so the running costs are low.

With the one tenant option you will be living with me so it's key that you're someone I will get along with. You'll probably have a full time job and good social intelligence.

So I'm letting you all know now so you have plenty of time to prepare for this!

Change Your Mind... Change Your Life


Blasting this one out after a big day of poker yesterday, fun night out last night and just back from nice walk...

I started reading a book yesterday and it was good enough to change my mind. I'm going to keep this book to myself for now because it's THAT GOOD but if you're a close friend I'll tell you.

Important point... getting high quality info FROM BOOKS is GOOD. I'm going to spend more time doing this and less time 'surfing the internet'.

Good writing and books stand the test of time. For self development books though the key is if THEY MAKE YOU TAKE ACTION. I've read quite a lot of them but now I'm just going to put the principles into action. I already am doing but will more.

So yeah over 58,000 views from all around the world now... amazing. Clicking with people from around the globe, a hundred years ago it would have been practically impossible. There's more to come- video content and more 'business' perhaps.

If you find value in this site and my goals CLICK BELOW NOW to donate. Donations are also at a record high and the more you donate the more high quality value I'll be able to provide.

Up Your Game


Blasting this one out after a nice bath and good walk...

Exercise is v important and I'm going to do more!

If you speak to high quality people it can make you up your game. Let's go in direct with one recent example from me. Chris Bailey Financial Orbit and I talk about shares most days. He seems to work AT LEAST A TWELVE HOUR DAY on shares practically EVERY DAY. Been reading more of his writing recently... helps me learn more about shares. Thankfully I've bought more Shell recently which he also has and it's done very well. But talking and reading his writing it's clear that there's a lot more I can learn about shares. And I have to push my comfort zone to earn more money to invest in shares.

If you speak to high quality women makes you realize that you may well have to UP YOUR GAME if you're going to connect with them. An attractive socially intelligent (possibly rich too) woman will have LOTS OF OPTIONS. The good thing is though a socially intelligent man who talks to attractive women has lots of options too... but really I think just drives you on to improve yourself just so you can be with that level of woman.

It's like... male and female energy bounces off each other. Those attractive girls ARE wanting for a high quality man to talk to them... because there aren't too many around who will!

Managing A Six Figure Share Portfolio


So word up... woke up at about 6am and had a thought for a NEW ARTICLE that could help me make more money potentially...

Blasting this one out quite quick but again it's one of those minimalist creations that could actually help YOU make more money too.

I tell people that I 'manage a six figure share portfolio'. And I do. It's just that my idea of managing it is to buy good shares and just... hold them. It's a bit like a surreal dream when they go up THOUSANDS OF POUNDS A DAY... with me doing NOTHING.

But anyway. Yesterday at one point Shell were up 2% on the price I bought them a few trading hours before. Even with FTSE 100 shares you will see this quite often- there are rises of say 3% within a few hours of trading.

So anyway... just a quick thought entered my mind. I could actually just sell the Shell and make a profit on my trade. I didn't as this would defeat the purpose of its great dividend yield... and I BELIEVE it will go up more in future. However I and you COULD sell shares like that after a short period and make money. It would be better to do that and make money rather than having it in the bank earning little interest.

Hmm hmm hmm. At some point in my life probably I will do some 'shorter term trading' as unless I can be the only person who CHEATS DEATH I will die eventually. So you don't need 'long term investments' when you're dead. I could just do some shorter term trading and spend the money if I wanted to.

Little bit of thought needed to get this next bit out... ok then I think I've found a fun way of expressing though. You COULD make money that way but... hmm I think it's good if you have the experience of being a long term investor doing it too. I mean some people like to or have 'day traded' before. There's 'plenty of profit to be made'. But I think if you're investing KNOWING that you HAVE to sell in like a day or a few days that's bad. All depends how much money you make. I am not a day trader... people like Rupert Hargreaves have more experience in that than me!

Quick final blast. The ability of MANAGING a six figure share portfolio shows in HOW MUCH PROFIT YOU MAKE. That's all that counts. Over 11 years in there are still different things I could be doing to make more money. And it fully made me realize that with a bit more money I could be a full time investor if I wanted to be.

Hustle


Really on the hustle today- bought Shell at a good price, getting easy money doing surveys, doing poker as I type. A lot of jobs have contacted me and I'm looking for an interesting role to start ASAP!

Share Thoughts


Looking at shares to buy... two fairly new thoughts. One is that "better to buy than interest" one and there's potentially one share in my portfolio I may sell if I feel I can get better returns elsewhere.

Another thought about executing a trade... this may be important if you have little time/you earn a HIGH amount per hour. What I can do now if I want is access the latest trades, make the right calculation on how much I want to invest then make the trade quickly if I want. Or as I have been doing 'stalk' the price to get it SLIGHTLY CHEAPER sometimes. But you have to ask yourself- the downside is I could have got it slightly cheaper perhaps... but how much upside is there? Food for thought.

Are You a Full Time Investor Now?


Got asked this a few days ago.

I said yes.

"So you just do shares and make money that way?"

I said yes.

It's because I wasn't super into that person that I didn't go into too much detail. But you could kinda say it's true. I mean most people would consider something they'd made thousands of pounds from in a few days being 'full time' or 'pro' right?

Truth is... I kinda am but with the strategy I use now... I could potentially make more than the average person in the UK does SPENDING NO TIME AT ALL on shares. So you couldn't call THAT full time.

I've been thinking lately. Spoke about this a bit... the way I finally said it was "If I bought something and HAD to sell it in a year that would be better than NOT buying something... if it made me less money than interest."

Because thinking about that more you can never know when or if you'll HAVE to sell shares. I don't spend much money and have a decent amount in cash but my percentage of money in cash is lower than it has been for while. With the amount of money I spend now my cash would keep me going for years EVEN IF I DIDN'T EARN ANY MORE.

And I will earn more.

So yeah... you've got to do what you want as much as possible in life. I am actually looking for a 'full time job' atm... but I'd still be an investor even then, just spending much less time looking at shares. But I'd have more money to invest. Having more money to invest makes you a better share investor... because you can spend just as much time researching but just make bigger purchases which leads to bigger profit... (or loss!)

The past 10 shares I've bought are all in profit though. The Lloyds shares I bought 21 days ago are up over 14% on the purchase price... quite surreal. I think I'm at the point now with all of the shares I own I KNOW when the right time is to buy more. Again I should have bought more Shell a few days ago... distracted by noise partly but I didn't fully have the "If I bought something and HAD to sell it in a year that would be better than NOT buying something... if it made me less money than interest" mindset too. I do now.

So WORD UP. Quite a 'philosophical' share investing post here... I just wrote whatever was on my mind. Hit me up if you want me to write about shares... still surreal over 100,000 people have read my share writing.

You Have to Know When To Be Ruthless


5:36 and the start of another goal day. There's a lot to get done today and I'm starting it off with this article.

You have to know when to be ruthless. You will have times in your life where people will be ruthless to you. I've used the world people in that sentence because whether it's 'the government' or 'companies'... they're just comprised of people anyway.

It's happened to me quite a lot in life- maybe it will happen less to you. Or you could be in a situation where things are more ruthless than they are for me. Sure some people in Britain might complain they have it tough but it's not exactly 'tough' compared to being in Afghanistan. Be thankful for what you have but aim to reach your goals and make it better.

So you have to be ruthless in pursuit of your goals. You can't have 'wishful thinking'- just a naive hope that things will be good. Look for concrete evidence. Try and know as much about a situation or person as you can if you need to make an important decision. Trust your instincts- if you have developed them in the right way they will be right the vast majority of the time.

At the same time, you have to know when not to be ruthless. If I consider someone a friend, or someone who can help me reach my goals and probably me help them rich theirs I will not be ruthless with them. Or it would take me a LOT for me to be ruthless- they would have to change from someone who's helped me with my goals to an extent to someone who's totally stopping me reaching my goals. Those kind of people are rare but they are out there.

I keep an open mind on people who haven't been in contact with me for while but who come back into contact with me. Again you have to set boundaries but there's been one guy recently who hadn't talked to me for a while but now he is and it's fine.

Anyway... lots to get done. Hopefully you got something out of this article.

I didn't look at how much my shares went down yesterday... but they're UP a lot today... biggest share portfolio ever... they've probably gone up about £1800 today.


I didn't look at how much my shares went down yesterday... but they're UP a lot today... biggest share portfolio ever... they've probably gone up about £1800 today.

I think after over 11 years properly doing it (17 if you count my first ever share purchase which went up over 200%) I instinctively know which high yield shares to buy now...

So that's quite a useful ability. Hit me up if you want to HIRE MY TIME!

Shares


Off to supermarket in few minutes... current thoughts on shares. I'm currently in the mood that potentially I would be OK with buying a share holding it for a year then selling if I 'had to'. I'm not really at the stage where this would have to be the case as I have plenty of money but I feel confident enough in my own ability to do that. I may learn about 'shorting shares' too. Basically if I see a situation where I believe I KNOW I will make much more than the interest rate over a year I would do it.

I was very tempted to buy Shell yesterday making it two shares bought in a day... if I could have got it for 1660 I would have. If I'd have just bought for 1665 it'd have been but about 2% ALREADY... oh well plenty of opportunities out there. If I need the cash I can just sell the shares, no problem.

I'm Single


I'm single.

Going a bit more direct on this subject than before....

I'm single and this 'area of my life' is something I'm going to work on more. Too much of this year has been spent acting like a bitch thinking about ONE girl... she's not thinking of me. But then again she's being kept up by a cough in rented digs with thin walls so it's not like she's got a PERFECT LIFESTYLE...


I would say overall I'm doing OK in this area but there is ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT. The weather is getting better now etc etc. I'll be using 'poker time' to put more time into this area. I've actually thought and STUDIED a lot about it but the real deal is... you just have to GO OUT TO INTERESTING PLACES AND CHAT TO INTERESTING PEOPLE. I need to do this ONCE A WEEK OR MORE. Twice a week or more ideally. Going out on Sat...

I'm 32. I have less energy than I did when I was 21. But there are still people OLDER than me who have this area of their life better dealt with than me and are still 'pushing it'. There's no excuse. Fitness plays a role and I'm going to make myself do some kind of exercise every day. I know plenty of theory and know people who are much better than me in this who'll help me. But at the end of the day I've got to get my results.

Just to put another direct thing on it. 32. I will DIE EVENTUALLY ;) I will have less energy eventually. Got to make the most of the time.

Having said that though I do have decent experience and knowledge- quite a lot more than at 21. So that helps. There's plenty of opportunities out there. I may even travel more this year to put myself in different situations.

So word up...

Maybe you're a girl reading this. Well I do like girls who are into reading and writing. You don't have to be but quite a few girls who like me are. Some actually have read ALL OF THIS SITE. So yeah I'm into writing if you are you can read as much or as little as you want for free. Putting my pic at the bottom.

Quick goal review of yesterday. Bought some more British American Tobacco- got it at 4091. The PE was higher than shares I normally buy but I still think I got a decent price and it will do fine in the long term. I mean, it's a shame that the NHS will have a bit more work to do potentially but hey... that's CAPITALISM.

Played 2 poker tourns perfectly but bubbled one and nearly bubbled the other. So I have two more sit and gos to play at some point over the next 2 weeks but apart from that... might not even play at all or little.

Went for decent walk and did some other exercise- walk EVERY DAY if weather is OK. Played some chess... did quite well. Not spending TOO LONG on it but keeps your mind sharp. With chess it's nice to not be effected by some random luck. Did plenty of comps and a few surveys won prize in comp. Applied for a few jobs online and rang one up.

Lot to do today including supermarkets in few hours. Will do daily mini goal reviews in near future.

Since last post got hits quick here's another one...

Current mood is feeling like buying shares... to force myself to get more money... so I can buy more shares. Right idea but need to get the timing right!

Goal update... had walk and had bath! Word up... now looking at shares and applying for jobs online. Keeping phones nearby and on if employers want to ring me and may ring them.

Share People


I see some share people/companies have followed or connected with me recently. If you want someone who's had OVER 100,000 VIEWS on share articles and will write CHEAPLY feel free to get in touch. Or if you're interesting you can just get in touch to chat sometimes.

Money Will Be Worthless When I'm Dead


Ha... OK then time for a real bit of off the cuff bit of writing.

Money Will Be Worthless When I'm Dead.

Quite morbid. 32 years alive... alive... pretty much all of that I have been CAREFUL WITH MONEY. Ironically I would say in 2016 there are certain things I could have done to hustle for it more- and I will be doing. But even when I'm worth more money and get more money... I RARELY SPEND IT. For most people in the UK around my 'age range' it's the other way round. It's get drunk, kill some brain cells have no money. It's go to uni (I was conditioned into that too... see my 'Should You Go to University' post... one of my best on this site)... then just have DEBT (that's right... DEBT... loans are not FREE money... although in the UK if you don't earn enough... eventually it's free!)

The whole thing is, you are conditioned by your parents and upbringing. Sure I might have locked myself in the bathroom at the age of 13 to NOT GO TO CHURCH EVER AGAIN but I think I inherited the not piss away money gene even more than my Chartered Accountant father as I DO NOT GIVE ANY MONEY TO CHARITY (unlike him who over his lifetime has probably given more than £100,000). The amount of surreal shit already in this article OBVS DESERVES A LOL.

I am my favourite charity.

So yeah... I do like hustling money just for something to do really, not because I am a consumerist sheep. Most of the things I do buy are good value. Like so far I have a car this year that so far I have paid £500 for which is probably worth at least £1500. I'm good at buying things- I'm actually GOOD at quite a lot of things, but bad at others. But that's fine... I mean like it's good to be REALISTIC that you are not THE BEST IN THE WORLD... just fine to set alright goals for yourself and do those.

I may AIM TO CONDITION MYSELF just to spend more money... because I can if I want to.

I cashed out of poker because being frank with you over the past week or so I have been playing WELL with just two quite big mistakes one noise related and the other set over set related (bit tilt maybe) because I had just lost KK va A2... PUSHED ALL IN PREFLOP. In fact if I listed all the bad beats in poker over the past 2 weeks the chances of them all happening... would like 1 in a thousand or something. Had a fair few yesterday but actually being FAIR I did get lucky twice because I just wanted to go all in. That is actually a slight weakness of mine... I'm playing REALLY BAD PLAYERS who will go all in with anything so sometimes I call and bet too much.

So yeah just cashed out. I may come back when/if I've got a full time job as my actual poker ability is still GOOD at least... I mean I was pissed off with myself yesterday and had 4 or 5 'bad beats'... but the reality is my losses overall over that day amounted to like... 40p. Word. Up. So yeah I actually did play some good hands... but I've looked at the situation atm and am not going to be playing cash games for a while. I have 2 tickets I won for free still to play and may play a bit today but by TAKING ALL MY MONEY OUT means I CAN'T play cash games even if I wanted to :).

Longest post in a while. That's the thing about writing... if you just do it a lot some bits will be good. I'd say this a pretty readable post for you and it'll have only taken me like 20 min max. OK... much more goal focused now as poker has been taking up TOO MUCH TIME... may do daily goal posts for a bit to keep myself accountable.

Shares


I'm going to spend a bit more time reading and I want to write some original stuff. I can write pretty quickly really... bit of practice and I think I could do 1,000 words a day like when I was writing at ShareProphets if I wanted to. If I'm going to write share articles for money that might take a bit more 'discipline' but if they're not going to be for money... I can view it just as my own education really :).

Poker


Cashed out of poker to spend more time doing other things... I have a smaller schedule today followed by quite a bit less from tomorrow. Two tickets and action points to use up but I'll be playing less cash games in the near future.

Quick Poker


Poker really can be just taking money off really bad players quickly- some people will just do really stupid things and lose all their money in a few seconds. I can take that in a few minutes and do other things if I want to :) £££ Have been today.

In fact in poker I could just take the approach that I may ONLY to select to play in clearly easy situations. It would mean me playing less but in terms of 'hourly rate' would be better probably.

Good start to day- up in poker big, shares up about £900 and doing other stuff :) £££

Lloyds and Shell


Bought more @royaldutchshell very nice yield at these prices! Bought LLoyds yesterday. That's the job of being a 'pro share investor' really... not much you have to do to get good deals. Would advise you buy at around these levels if you can afford to. Had one job interview offer yesterday which I'm thinking about and on the hustle for cash in many ways!

Getting Perspective...


Going to blast out something bit longer here...

Important to have perspective on things... just because something goes badly in the short term does NOT mean that will happen in the long term. It can be just a short term 'blip'. Lost some poker pots by being unlucky a few days ago... that didn't mean that I couldn't win big yesterday, despite spending much less time on it, and I did. Just because ONE (literally one) interesting person isn't REPLYING TO MY INTERNET CHAT atm (lols) doesn't mean that I haven't got MANY other high value people that I can chat to every day. I'm not afraid to go 'direct' if I have to though (plenty of material...)

Yeah and shares up today from bad yesterday. Actually was a buying opportunity yesterday... still could be today. They've got up about £1000 today. £1000... plenty of people in the UK work hard for a month for that. Around the world people are working longer... it's just one tab to me.

Goal day :).

I speak to 'ordinary' (but smart) people almost every day about shares... "I'd like to do that" a lot of them say. I let them know that they can read my share articles for free if they like. When I mention that I may be writing some more share articles they all say they'd prefer to read from someone who OWNS the shares rather than someone who doesn't!

Money


When I'm looking at my 6 figure share portfolio now I always have to remember to NOT BE TOO HARD ON MYSELF with money... sure I have a financial goal but the amount of money I have in total compared to the average person in the UK is very good. Will get more but be happy with what I've got!

Going to put in some time to ringing jobs up today- my phone is on right by my laptop for incoming calls too.

Easy Money...


The easiest way to make money in poker is find a table or tables with really bad players and just take all their money. If there aren't enough bad players it may be worth doing something else until there are!

EU Article- First Thoughts



If I decide it's worth my time, and it probably is, I want to write a detailed article about the UK's EU Referendum. This is probably the most important vote I've had in my life so far.

Instinctively I feel I will vote to leave the EU. The only downside of this vote for me personally would be if Britain voted to leave the EU which could mean that probably my shares will go down in the short term. Possibly this decision could make them go up in the medium or long term. It's POSSIBLE I might even sell some shares before the vote... we'll see. But there are lots of positive points for me in leaving the EU. It'll be good for the UK economy- the UK pays in far more than it gets back from the EU. Too much immigration has had many negative effects for the UK. British people are faced with constrained wages and unemployment partly due to increased immigration. There is too much pressure on public services and overcrowding.

British people should create their own laws. The majority of British laws are currently imposed by the EU. This must change.

Anyway... some people will not be too happy with this viewpoint but that's how I feel at the moment. It's important to realize that a lot of 'pro EU' propaganda will come from EITHER sources with a real leftist viewpoint or those with an extreme capitalist viewpoint, quite a mix. Just because I'm a HSBC shareholder doesn't mean I'm a HSBC slave. They're thinking what's best for them as a company but not really what'll be best for the UK as a whole. I urge my British readers to consider all the issues when voting.

Very important to have a long term perspective... I seriously believe that my shares that I have will rise over time... it really is surreal to know I can easily be worth over £1000 more at the end of each day... by doing nothing at all. I don't have to look at them and maybe I will less in future... maybe I will more. Who knows? It's all about how much enjoyment it gives me.

Jobs


I've been very busy today but made decent progress. Every day is goal day and I'm pushing my comfort zone to reach my goals. Tomorrow or today if people want to contact me I'll be putting in some time to evaluating interesting jobs relatively near to Huddersfield. Companies have already contacted me yet I want to make sure my next move is a great one.

Buy to Let


Buy to let mortgages seem a bit strange so far. I could buy the property outright if I sold some shares but even if I paid half the value of a £70,000 property (where I could get £450 a month rent all of which I could use to pay off the mortgage) there are still strict stipulations such as £25,000 income. Anyway the research continues feel free to contact me with good mortgage deals.

Sunday, 20 March 2016

Busy day tomorrow, probably talking with banks about a buy to let mortgage and many other things. Every day is goal day.

Putting Money Into Property


At some point I will put a large part of my personal wealth into property. I'm careful about even buying a bag of crisps but this is a logical decision. If you look at the BILLIONAIRES in the world all of them have an amount in 'real estate', some a very large amount. If you buy at the right price property is very unlikely to go down in price over a few years even. I still have a lot of work to do but I know this will happen.

I have been researching finance options for buy to let for a number of months now and am keen to get a good deal. There are many different potential options available so feel free to contact me about this.

Potential...


You know the surreal thing... I feel I have the potential to be one of the best British writers of the twenty first century... 32 years of reading and writing have brought me to this point. Whether I'll be able to do it... who knows. I am going to put in more time to create some hard hitting writing though, that's for sure.

New Opportunities


I am now investing more time in buy to let. Also open to opportunities from good companies- have had several contact me recently. Thanks for that and I will get in touch soon.

When you're a worldwide famous writer and have sold well over a thousand products you'll always have opportunities. The best is yet to come.

Free ShareProphets Comment


I think it's good and bad in a way...

I haven't personally bought a newspaper (other than for free supermarket tokens) for about 12 years and don't think I ever will again...

Online is just easier to read... and there is more new quality online content on the net each day than you can digest.

I guess it's a bit 'sad' that some writers in a way will be fired. Very hard to make money JUST being a writer these days...

What I've personally had to do is find ways of making more than enough money in other ways. Then I can write whatever I want without having to worry about being paid for it... I'd still be open for 'paid writing offers'... but would still only write for original websites.

Settings Standards For Yourself in A Relationship


This is one of those articles that's quite hard to write...

It's very important to set standards for yourself in relationships. With male relationships, I have no problems. I will not tolerate any man who lies to me or wastes my time. I have so many elite male friends that I don't even really have enough time for them. I'm so lucky with my male friends.

With female relationships though... can be a bit different.

But really you should just apply the same standards you do to male relationships. You shouldn't let people lie to you or waste your time. Of course... the female mind is very different from the male mind. It's like I said to one sociable girl recently... "Men are women are equal... but different."

You can read up a lot on this if you want, I have.

One of Ricky Gervais' tweets hit home to me recently... here it is:
"Nearly 14 billion years of non existence, one life, then back to non existence for ever. Enjoy it while it lasts!"

Lol Ricky... one of the few mainstream stars who actually is pretty deep (we both studied philosophy btw.)

There's no way I can let my prime years as a man pass by by caring too much about how a few or one girl thinks. Around 85 million girls turn 18 every year in the world. Sure, I might not 'have enough' overall to get the total elite girls (the kind I like sometimes)... but I have enough to get very good girls sometimes.

One quick edit that takes away a bit of directness but just to clarify. I do have 'relationships' with attractive sociable girls... but I think you get the gist of this post.

Anyway... so you can call it a quick edition. Probably the person who 'inspired' this article will read this one day. All I can say is every day is goal day and I know what I'm worth.

Ideas


I've got ideas for TWO killer articles... one about the EU and the other... about setting standards for yourself in relationships. These articles aren't the kind of 'please all generic' ones... but maybe they're the kind I should be writing. Obvs I prob won't get PAID any money for them... and the EU one might take a while to write, but potentially they will be written!

Doing a Job and Buy to Let


I'd like to make it clear that the fact that I'm doing a full time job increases the chances of me doing buy to let in future. Gives me more money to do so, and brings me into contact with more interesting people.

Weekend means share research... probably going out tonight in Huddersfield too :)

Great Share Day


Turned out to be a great day for my shares! Up around £1200. So pleased I've got my timing right in buying recently. Barratt Developments plc has soared up today, BG will probably be my quickest profit ever... everyone performed excellently. Spoken to a lot of employers today too and many are keen to interview me... every day is goal day :)

Making the Right Decision Now


I was stalking the BG share price today. I got about 40 quotes.

The first quote I got was 961. Hmm... not a bad price I thought... but it had been 960. I decided to buy if it got to about 960 again.

I had already won one of my biggest pots in poker for a long time... partly by being patient and waiting for a chance I guess. I started playing another poker tourn as well at the same time as stalking.

I cashed in that poker tourn at the same time as checking the share price.

But the BG price kept creeping up. I started getting a bit annoyed at myself for not making the decision before. Because part of the thoughts in my mind was... it's worth a bit of my time to getting it at a slightly lower price than 961.

But then I started thinking more logically. BG is going to get taken over by Shell- this will be confirmed in the meeting tomorrow. This should mean that all other things being equal the price will rise over the day. I had a feeling the price would spike right at the end of the day.

I ended up buying 976.

They're 991 already today. If you're not a share investor basically what will happen with buying BG (British Gas) at this price is you'll get about a 10% return on your money. In one month. Then you'll get Shell shares which will go up over time too.

What have I got out this?

Probably that it's good to get the right logical framework and then make a good quick instinctive decision. A good life can be made up of making many right decisions at the right time.

I think with shares you can like pick up good ideas from research... but then it's about executing those ideas at the right time at the right price.

All you can do is make the right decision in the moment you're in now.

Secondly that I might actually do more 'shorter term' trading. It's something Chris Bailey suggested to me. It'd be a new skillset in a way but I could learn it. All that matters in shares is how much money you make.

Thanks for reading and super pleased we're above FIFTY TWO THOUSAND now!

Bought BG today for a quick profit... hit me up with job offers world! Will be ringing up after poker.
