  • On investing:
""I wanted to learn as much as possible about the business and trading. I opened up an account with $20,000 of my own money and started trading, and the value of the account went up to $300,000 in two and a half months. I also went to the brokerage firm Schottenfeld Group, although to work there I had to take a test to become a licensed broker-dealer. This wasn't my money - I was trading for the firm. I know I made them some money, although I'm not sure exactly how much. I think what you end up with often on Wall Street is the guys who couldn't make it onto the sports team at school; a lot of them wanted to be competitive athletes and found themselves in finance, which is just as competitive a field. It's a 'kill or be killed' mentality. It's very competitive - worse than Hollywood.” via Daily Mail
