As of recent years after graduating from college, I have been looking to supplement my income due to the high cost of living in California. I have heard of many great success stories of how people were able to gain extra income on the side through doing what they loved or what their hobbies were. In looking for ways to make a little extra money, I tried to sell my unused items around the house but when all the unused items were sold, I was again in the position where I started from. I remembered my old fitness friend would encouraged me to go to the gym by saying “you have to start somewhere to get to where you want to be.” Remembering his words, I decided to look into stocks more seriously. I have always been interested in the stock market since I read the book, “The Neatest Little Guide to Stock Market Investing” by Jason Kelly. It was a really good book for all starting investor as it documented major key areas new investor should be aware of before jumping into investing in the stock market.
So going back to my friend encouraging words, I started a Robinhood account and funded the account with a few hundred dollars. The goal for writing this article was to illustrate my trading strategy, indicate my monthly performance and show why I took a position in each of the stock I bought.
