I guess I could have put it clearly may be, there is lots there:
Getting into full time investing has more to do with liking your work than
keeping money in hand, growing at fair speed etc. The more one discuss
about it, the more the process get prolonged.
Quitting a job is not d day for every one, any one can come back.
Expenses management is more important than income, the real test is when
you have surplus money not deficit. So I cited one example.
I am finding work life balance a bigger problem than money which I though
would be the only point before starting off. For same reason I cited even
short selling brings you money.
Not sure what you mean by I killed it last year. I dont think or not dream
of doing anything like that.
If you think market killing, that's not lesson but outcome!
