Posted February 06, 2019 07:03:22I just bought a $2,000 stock in the tech giant Apple.
This was in the early 2000s, when I had $10,000.
Now, I’m worth $2 million.
I don’t think it will go anywhere.
But the company is still going to be worth about $300 billion.
So that’s a lot of money in the stock right now.
That’s what I was hoping for.
What’s really crazy is that it’s a very, very volatile market.
It goes up and down every single day.
There are so many companies out there that are going to fail.
But they all seem to get so much of the media coverage, they all get so many awards and they’re so much more valuable.
I think that’s what’s really amazing about the stock.
I think it’s not because the people are stupid.
They know that they’re going to lose money.
And they’re not going to make a fortune.
But I think it was just luck.
They were on the right track and they got lucky.
You just can’t make money like that.
What would you change to make it more profitable?

When I was a young guy, I had no idea what the future held.
I had never really had a life.
I grew up in the suburbs of Dallas.
And I’ve lived in a lot.
So I’m used to living in a very small apartment, with no running water.
It was a different world for me growing up.
I didn’t know anyone, I didn’ t have any friends.
I was just an outcast.
I remember when I first got into the game, my first job was in a coffee shop.
I used to work for Starbucks, so I started in the mornings.
And then I was on the phone with them all the time, trying to get them to open up their coffee shop to the world.
I’m very proud of what I did.
But when I got to Apple, I started out with $100,000 to buy my first iPhone.
And when they asked me to invest that money in my company, I was like, no, no way!
They said no, we can’t give you that money because we have so many other things to worry about.
I mean, I would never do that.
I was in college for two years and had a lot going on.
I took a job as a computer technician, working in a high-rise building in San Francisco.
I started to think about retirement, and it just wasn’t an option.
So one day I got a call from a friend who was doing some work in San Jose, California.
They had just opened a new office.
It wasn’t that they were making money, it was that they had all these great ideas for new things.
They’d heard from people in Silicon Valley that Apple was going to open a second office, a new research and development facility.
They asked me, “Are you interested in going to work there?”
And my first day I showed up and I said, “I’ll be on the first floor, working on new things.”
And I ended up working there for two and a half years.
I’m still very happy.
And it’s been really hard, but the job is really fun.
There’s a little bit of a pay scale.
But for the most part, I still make enough to support myself and my family.
What has your experience been like in the industry?
I think I’ve always been really supportive of what Apple has done.
They’ve always had an innovative way of doing things.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with them on projects like this one.
They did this thing called the Internet of Things, which is basically a series of smart appliances.
These are little robots that can connect to a network, so they can know what’s going on in the world and respond to the weather and things like that, or you could say, the smart home.
They made these things called “smart thermostats.”
These are these little devices that can tell the temperature and the humidity in your home.
It’s not just a heating and cooling system.
And you can also control it from the web.
So you can set it to be a fan and then control the temperature or the humidity.
It all goes back to your home or your car or your house, depending on what you want to do.
I don’t know how to measure the value of an investment.
I really don’t.
But my experience with Apple has been very valuable.
And what I’ve learned over the last couple of years is that we have to make sure we have the right mindset.
The market has changed a lot over the years, and we have more information now,
