Experience is what you receive when you dont get what you want I remembered my fathers words as I tried to postpone the coming massacre Like during the fall of the Roman Empire my allies became enemies and my foes turned into partners In fast and furious action with property changing hands again and again I rested my fate on the words of one man hoping he would rescue me from this dangerous tailspin Dont these experts realize the heartbreak theyre inflicting on my young life While the uncertainty of tomorrows attire is the most pressing concern for many seventeen-year-olds I must worry about much greater issues Its August 31the market is down over 300 points and the value of my stock portfolio is falling fast Usually whenever I mention the words stockbroker or investment other students snicker that Im actually interested in that stock market stuff My interest in investing began when as a nave freshmen I learned that my assistant JV basketball coach Tom Wingfield worked with Dean Witter as a stockbroker Over the course of the season I expressed interest in his job and we became inseparable Tom became my mentor and I absorbed every word he spoke Almost immediately I became infatuated with the market and wanted to invest every penny I have To the delight of my fifteen-year old brother before school I even found myself opening the newspaper directly to the business section giving my brother first rights to the sports page for the first time in his life Hoping to soon enter the market I worked at a nearby retirement home for several months and earned a little money To help me buy more stock my father agreed to match any amount of money I invested I told Tom about the plan and he thought it was fantastic The next day I had a stock portfolio and dreams of retiring by age 30 Three years have elapsed since
