Folks going through a bad time and a dark spot in their life? I have tremendous empathy for them. I'll sit and talk with them for hours. I've been through those dark places in my own life.

That being said ... the Challenge project dividend bearing stocks are just flying higher.

But the pain of the first few years I started doing this was so intense, I do not forget the number one rule when it comes to this business: RISK CONTROL

I've actually thought of writing a little entry that talks ...about the emotional toll this business can bring to the unwary; and the true extent of the emotional damage I suffered for the first few years in this business. But that's an idea I'm sort of wrestling with lately ... on how much I want to make public, and how much I want to keep private.
