Hello! My name is Chris. I am an Economist and a Financial Advisor. I came from nothing. I put myself through college by joining the military. I studied Business Administration and Economics.
My time in the military cost me more than money. I lost my ability to have children due to exposure to high energy radiation from an accident. My first lesson in life, nothing is free. I knew no matter how much money I made, I would never start my own family. Nobody wants to spend their life with a washed up vet who can’t even give them children. After military and school I traveled around a lot. I would find little jobs here and there, helping people manage their finances, without giving their money away to ruthless lenders. I felt so bad that people were forced to live like this. I enjoyed making sustainable futures possible when it seemed impossible. But after each job, and client, I was still alone.
One day while attending a VA examination for a tumor in my brain, I met a total train wreck. 3 kids, 3 fathers, no support. It was her fault after all, she made her choices and she chose wrong. At least that’s what people say. What was her dream? Why is she here today? I introduced myself. She was having an appointment for atrial fibrillation, she had been discharged from the Military. Her life long dream was to be a doctor and to take care of people. It was inspiring to see a single mother work so hard for her dreams and raise those children alone, so I married her. (It might have been a little more complicated getting their).
Together we were a true team. I finally got a steady job managing the finances of a small business. She being a medic applied those skills and became a paramedic for a price EMS company. Together we made enough to get by, to us that’s all we needed.
One day one of the kids gets sick. Really sick. It was an ordeal but we worked through it. But our troubles didn’t end there. As you could say along comes a spider. The father of one of the children decided after utterly abandoning his children, it was time to be “dad”. He sued for custody and got a ruthless legal team. The guy was loaded for bear, and began ripping our little family apart, 1 injunction at a time. He wanted full custody. It got expensive.
Luckily being a financial advisor and a private investor I had built a small portfolio, around $100,000 in cash secured equities, and some bonds. The returns were ok. A couple thousand a year in returns on capital mostly through dividends and the occasional maturation of a bond. I had planned on building a little fortune to put her through med school with these investments, and created college account that would be able to pay for the kids’ education one day.
As time and attrition in this ugly civil dispute dragged on I had the begin liquidation of these investments. According to his lawyers I was commiting atrocities to these children. I was trying to replace him as their rightful father, and to steal his rights. The courts were buying it. We needed more than a cheap legal aide. I fully liquidated the portfolios including the children’s future education funds and then started to take on the same debts I used to guide people out of, and teach them to avoid. I did this for my wife and the kids.
To keep a longer story short the sudden flood of money was enough to counter with a legal team of our own and we won the case. Unfortunate now we have nothing. We lost our house, the kids college funds are gone. My wife’s account for Med school is liquidated. And we have $49,900 in unsecured debt with very high interest. If we declare bankruptcy and try and start fresh the kids might be in high school before we can even start getting their education accounts back in order.
I’ve developed an investment strategy that will bring us back from the brink, start chipping away at the debt and damage this situation has caused us. I want her to realize her dream. I want the kids to grow up happy and successful. The same thing we all want really.
I can’t take on any more debt. Taking on debt for investing is like trying to put out a fire with gasoline. I need a startup capital.
Over the years I’ve met many investors and have created a network of research and information sources on every market there is. From the complicated and honestly risky task of crypto currencies, to owing shares of companies that are poised to change the world in ways you can’t even begin to imagine.
If you can help me and my family return to our lives, I can show you things that could be life changing. Investment strategies in companies that you would laugh to think you could actually make money off of. If investing isn’t in your taste, I can teach you personal financial strategies and even customize them to fit your own situations. My trading partners are quid pro quo. I won’t get a cent from them. We trade information for information.
I only have ambitions for my family. I’m not asking for the full price of our troubles. I’m offering my knowledge and experience in exchange for supporting me to support my family. I hope you dear reader find this post, in a sea of unending similar stories and support us. I look forward to contributing my knowledge to you
