Learn By Doing: Start With A Grand
Patron Saint of Startwithagrand, Jesse Lauriston Livermore
A great example of getting your hands dirty doing it rather than sitting on the sidelines until things are “perfect.” Jim Coudal from Coudal Partners started day trading starting with a thousand dollars and Twittering the result. There is no better way to learn then when your own money is on the line. He is just about breaking even so far (not bad in this market) and when asked about his project, Jim says “Real money. Real commissions. No tears.” Wonderful.
