My name is Eric Baglio. I’m 38 years old, have been working since I was 17 and currently have a family of four. I’m extremely passionate about investing and have learned a great deal about what it takes to become financially secure and overall wealthy.
I’m by no means rich right now but I have spent a great deal of time learning the hard way what it takes to be successful with money.
I have a retirement account set up, a pension that starts the day after I retire from the military, a portfolio of stocks, a home that I’m paying off, and I trade options part-time. I don’t plan on working till I’m 65 and if I continue on the path I’m on, I should be able to retire much sooner.
What Have I Done?
Well, I’ve had quite a life so far. I joined the military while I was in college and surprised everyone in my family. I have been a proud member of the United States Navy for more than 17 years. I know. I know. I look a lot younger. What can I say?
During my time in the United States Navy, I’ve visited 12 different countries, been around the horn of South America, crossed the equator multiple times, and had the pleasure of spending months at a time on the open sea.
I became interested in growing wealth and investing a little more than a decade ago and am learning every day in one way or another.
I also discovered that investing while out to sea is no easy task. Slow internet speed, limited resources, I went through a course to become a Financial Specialist which allowed me to council members of the armed services about their finances. I learned one thing about myself. I really like teaching others about investing.
That’s the reason I started this site. I’m happy to share what I’ve learned and hope to grow this site into a massive resource for those who want to learn how to invest.
Experience in Finance
I have learned a great deal about investing in the stock market specifically. I have learned how to analyze companies by fundamental and technical analysis and use both methods when choosing companies to invest in.
Amid the 2020 pandemic my stock portfolio more than doubled.
In the Navy, I became a Certified Command Financial Specialist which gave me the opportunity of helping hundreds of Sailors with developing budgets and understanding their finances.
My current focus is learning more detailed technical analysis so I can start trading a short term account. Thus far, most of my investing has had a time horizon between 1-5 years although I also purchase and sell options contracts which are on a shorter timeframe (generally 3-9 months).
I love trying out new investment platforms and services and reviewing them on Youtube:
