2019 Did Not Go Well

2019 was the worst year of my life. I started the year on a high note: freshly divorced, money to spare, looking for investments. I invested over half of my divorce settlement in local businesses as well as in a new company for marketing my shirts and books. The local businesses collapsed. $50,000 in advertising produced ten shirt sales and one book sale. I also lost money trying to learn daytrading and failing miserably. 

I went back to work. I got a job at Lowe's Home Improvement store. It nearly killed me. I lost forty pounds in five months and suffered the first back injury of my life. Fortunately, the back injury was minor and did not leave any chronic pain or damage. 

A friend suggested I apply to OneEighty, a local addiction recovery organization. To my great surprise, they hired me. I am only making $12.25 per hour, which means I am falling behind on the debt payments left from my failures, but at least I am not lifting 300 pound boxes of patio furniture by myself.

I haven't been spending my little free time sleeping or binge watching television programs. I've been searching for some way to get in on the ground floor of 5G. It's coming. It's going to change everything. It's going to transform tens of thousands of people into millionaires by the end of 2020. I won't be one of them, but if I can find the right investment I will certainly be better off than I am now. 

I use Robinhood for investing in stocks and ETFs. The interface has a steep learning curve, but it's simple and straightforward enough that with a day or two of study anyone can master it. If you use my referral link to join, they will give both you and I a free stock worth about $5.

Here is my current portfolio:
My stock selections are based on both my own research and research done by The Oxford Club, one of the oldest, most prestigious investment institutions in the world. If you can only afford $20, then join Robinhood with my referral link and buy one share of MRVL. This company holds more than 10,000 patents related to technology forming the beating heart of 5G. No one can predict the future, but MRVL is the best company I could find in a position to reap massive growth from the 2020 rollout of 5G. 

LLNW would be my second recommendation. I discovered this company entirely by accident. I received one share for free after someone used my referral link to join Robinhood. LLNW is a video streaming server company specifically created to take advantage of the coming 5G rollout. By year end it could potentially become the 5G version of Netflix. Naturally, it could just as easily fail completely, but one share is cheaper than a Starbucks grande doubleshot, so it's worth the risk. The share I received for free was worth $3.43. I did some research, liked what I learned, and bought four more shares at the same price. On Friday it closed at $4.03. Apparently I am not the only one happy to learn about it.

2019 nearly killed me, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I hope 2020 will better for both of us. 

Get Robinhood, buy some stocks, let's ride the 2020 rollercoaster together and see how it goes!
