Stan - Stanomatic - Spilman
I owned and operated 6 small minimum wage companies in my early 20 and 30s. I discovered I can run any business and work a tremendous amount of hours that equates to minimum wage by the years end. I learned a great deal about operating companies. The experience was fantastic.
While in high school and college I discovered I had a natural knack for programming. In my thirties I started programming professionally. A few years after working for a company I stepped into consulting. I thoroughly enjoyed the consulting life. Volunteering has always been a part of my life. I ran the Boulder .NET User Group, mentored junior programmers and also gave presentations at work and various user groups. I was also a Colorado Mounted Ranger for three years.
Investing and Day Trading
In 2008, against many professional's advice, I closed our 401K accounts and invested in Gold. Yes, of course we paid both 30% penalty fee and taxes. However, we doubled our investment. Later down the road, my wife and I bought our dream ranch with our gold. In 2017 I taught myself to trade options, stocks and in late 2019, futures.
I really enjoy the art and science of day trading. I take this profession very serious. I also enjoy mentoring or teaching. My hope is to combine teaching and day trading. My goal is to mentor someone to the point where they are profitable month after month.
I have played competitive sports all my life. Soccer, Kenpo, Boxing, Archery, weight lifting, Marathons, Paint ball, mountain bike racing and obstacle races, Spartan and Tough Mudder. I have managed to win 1st place in most events. I enjoy the competition as I know it will push me to be better. I am very passionate about life and all it has to offer.
Trade well friends.
