Robinhood. Free stock trading.


Free stock trading.
Stop paying up to $10 for every trade.  

Instead of having to calculate how much you need to gain in order to pay for the $19.99 in brokerage fees and still make a profit.  You can trade for free.  This means that small accounts, and I mean small accounts with about $1000-$1 can make trades and build almost literally from nothing.  The most I´ve traded with so far has only been about $300.  I was still bringing in profits of almost a third of my investments.  Mostly playing breakout IPO´s and pump and dump penny stocks.  I don´t have a large account, heck, I don´t even have a small account depending on who you talk to.  I had looked for free trading brokerage accounts before and didn´t find anything.  But, for whatever reason, I ran a search for free trading and Vua-La I quickly came across Robinhood.  I quickly signed up and got approved and am waiting for my funds to be in my account.  It´s very basic and that´s how they keep the cost at $0.00.  Buy, sell and very sad charts.

How and Why You Should Learn How To Use Your Money

This is a little explanation on a way you can make your money work for you.

Savings accounts, bonds and the like can average about 2%-15% ROI per year. The PRO side: put your money there and it sits. CON: Lower ROI.

However, with investment accounts, getting a 50%, 100% 500% ROI isn´t brain surgery. Making a couple trades a week and an average of 1%-2% profit per trade is actually pretty simple to handle. Considering that starting out, you have a small capital, don´t know exactly what you´re doing, and will lose more.
Explanation: Consider that you´re starting out. You only have about $2000 to start. You´re new so you only make about 50 trades your first year (you only take trades of which you are 95% sure will be a profit.) You set your limits to prevent yourself from making emotional trades. You sell/cover once you make your 2% gain(Unless you´re 99.99% sure it´s going to continue, so you set your limit at 5% or 10% for example). Woohoo! You made $1000 your first year. Now add that on and trade some more.

The next year, you make 100 trades and improve your average ROI to 1.5%. Profiting $4,500 that year.
As each year passes you gain more experience, knowledge, resources and more confidence. Once you make it to that million the game changes a little. Logistics of trading millions of dollars is kind of ridiculous, so you should take that money and buy Assets. You could buy a million dollars worth of stock in a business that pays dividends. If the company pays you 1% of the amount you have invested with them, each quarter you could make about $10k so an extra $40k in your pocket each year. Wish I knew this stuff earlier in life. Retire when I was 20. And retire my future kids at age 25. Don´t increase the amount of expenses you have just because the amount of income increases. Take that income and put it towards assets. Then buy all the $10000000000 yachts, planes, cars, mansions, businesses, and football teams you want.

When you work for someone else. Your money goes strait to the government first, then to you, and then where does it go each month? To your new car, new phone, fast food, games? Or, does it go to acquiring assets? Buying yourself education, real estates, businesses, investments.
This spreadsheet shows that about five to six years, following conservative guidelines, you can turn $2000 into $1,000,000. I could retire when I´m 30! This stuff you can do while going to school or working full-time.

I hope this helps you. It certainly has helped me.
Live your dreams.

Why I Blog

Blogging is $0.00 to start.  Excluding the internet bill and cost of your computer and accessories of course.  I just write and post what I want, just like with Facebook, twitter, instagram and other social media sites.  But, the catch is, I get to post ads on my blog.  When my followers see an ad they like they click it and it takes them to the deal, and that's when I get paid.  Why should I spend all my time on all those other social media sites when I can create a custom social media page for myself and earn an income.  I have time, location and financial freedom.  You should follow me and gain all the same benefits of blogging.   Be a creator and make your page personal to you like you did when you had MySpace.

Please create a blog and I'll add you to my reading list!

Google Adsense Online Business

Today I will go over my online business with AdSense.  Over the past several months I have been working day and night trying to earn a steady income through AdSense.  I just passed the $100 threshold on the 7th of December.  In order for AdSense to pay you, you need to earn $100.  It took 10,916 page views, 425 ad clicks and just over three months to complete.  I am not sure what the actual amount is but I work at a rate of about 10¢ per hour. All in hopes to make decent living while traveling the world and spending time with my family!

Google AdSense is great because you will always have companies advertising on your site.  Another great feature is the better your site gets through social media popularity, website content and keywords, the more you will get per click. Companies use a Google AdWords account to create and bid their ads to go onto the web.  The highest bidder gets their ad on a website. 

My job is to write good content, use keywords, build a social network and place the best ad in the best location on my web pages. I choose different ad shapes and sizes, text ads, picture ads, and even what type of advertising they show.  They range from business entrepreneur classes to web development. The way that I pick and choose is I just follow what Google suggests for me.  I also look at my reports to find out what ads are getting clicked, how much I'm getting paid for those click and then tweaking my other ads to match up.  The ads on a web page need to be well balanced and fit in.  I go to other websites more popular than mine or at least ones that I think are successful and try to get inspiration from what they have.

Like Me On Facebook!

I recently created a simple Facebook page, so now go and make it not so simple!  Click the image above because that link should work or click here!  I finally figured out how to connect a link to an image!  It's really easy, just highlight it and then click the link button and paste the link you want. Anyway, follow the link, LIKE my page, invite me to be your friend so we can get some networking going, and of course, SHARE the page and this blog with your Facebook friends, tweet it, pin it, etc...

Thank you!

P.S.  Okay, so if the image clicking link doesn't work after all that... just click here too!
