My thoughts on life, business, and success.

This is a finance and global affairs-oriented blog, along with career insights that I have gained during my time in the industry. Energy is focused on because of the impact that it has on the global economy. This is not a stock of the day blog, although stocks may be discussed as appropriate.

  1. Hey Alex. Very cool that I found you. I, like yourself, am a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill where I was lucky enough to have found economics to be my field of study, also, just like yourself. I’m not here to waste time talking about all the ways we’re cut from the same cloth, but I just wanted to let you know that your story is one similar to my own. I recently just graduated in May from Chapel Hill, and surprisingly I JUST discovered my passion for research over this past summer when my banking internship left me hungry for being closer to the markets. I’ve always been interested in WHY they move the way they do, instead of just answering the WHAT. I don’t care about the percentage change in the DJIA last week. That has never interested me. What I was interested in, was WHY financial markets did what they did, and this requires research. I want to be an equity analyst on Wall Street, and I stumbled upon your blog and your YouTube channel, and now have found myself to be extremely motivated.

    I say all that to say this. I don’t know you personally, but I’m proud of your hard work and career advancements you’ve made thus far. I plan on starting my CFA journey this December, after a few months of adjusting to work. I want you to know that your life, which probably seems so ordinary to you, is motivating to people like myself. Keep at it. If you have a chance, I’ve also started a blog, but it’s still being put together. I published the “About Me” page where you can read up on more info about myself here: http://e00.986.myftpupload.com/about-me/. As you can see, I don’t even have my domain name linked to it yet. I’m still designing the damn thing. I just wanted to have something that would show future research departments my commitment to being an equity analyst so I started it.

    Either way, I apologize for the dissertation paper I’ve written here, I was just really excited when I came across your stuff online. Good luck to you my man, and Go Heels baby!!!
