I am a mechanical engineer by profession. I liked the job when I was on a learning curve. I still do like it - sort of. But, lately, I experienced too many people who hire you for your expertise and help, and then do not listen to you, blame you for their own stupid decisions, blame you for over-designing the projects, blame you for contractors mistakes and how come your plans didn't show how to install this or that... I got sick of all this. So one day, I started looking for an opportunity where I would not be required to deal with all this bullshit. Starting a business? No, you still need customers (mostly unreasonable, not knowing what they want, whining all the time), you need employees (worst thing ever to deal with employees which are not committed and it is hard to make them treat the business they work in as their own), you need supplies, suppliers, subs, storage (if you are in a product business or selling stuff, or even manufacturing it), urging unpaid invoices, sue people for not paying you, being sued for mistakes of others... give me a break. I have been there, and I do not want that. And don't take me wrong, I was on the executive levels, not just an employee.

The only answer I found to my problem was the stock market. But not the stock market MJ talks about and most people here think about (as a casino). Not a buy and hope strategy, but active trading management. It took me a few years to develop a viable strategy that would work for me, make me money, and quit the rat race. Investing and trading are simple, but not easy. One market wizard once said, "trading in the stock market is the hardest way to make easy money".

After years of learning, reading, practicing, and trading, learning from my mistakes, I developed a strategy that generates income in any market (up, down, or sideways). And that's all that matters to me. Make money, I can spend to pay the bills and not have to deal with anything and anyone.

Well, I am not in my early retirement yet but on the path there. If things continue the way they do, I should be out of the rat race in five years.

Why I like investing and trading in the stock market:

1) You can generate great returns
2) You can treat investing and trading as your business
3) You do not need customers
4) You do not need supplies
5) You do not need any marketing looking for customers, and keep them happy mainly when they do not know what they want
6) You do not have to deal with competition, there is none
7) You do not need any manufacturing, rent buildings, offices, warehouses, you do not need a third party like Amazon to sell your product
8) You do not need any product, after all, you do not need to spend time searching what to sell, what to make, what to manufacture, and you do not need to beg for startup money

All you need is a computer or laptop, a brokerage account with full trading privileges, and $2,000 to start with. You are free, you have no boss, no partners, no investors to answer to. You have full-time freedom.

People think investing and trading in the stock market is a bad proposition because the market only makes 8% a year... Those who claim and believe this probably never actively traded in the market and have no clue what they are talking about. These people should stay away from the market because thanks to their own false beliefs they predetermined themselves to failure before they even started.

I am not a guru or great in investing and trading. I make mistakes, but I believe in tremendous freedom trading offers. I started trading in 2014 and averaged 45% annual returns except 2018 and 2019 where I had losses of 33% and 24% respectively. However, 2020 was a very good year. Despite covid troubles and selloffs, I am currently at 157% revenue.
