Statistics show that a summer job prepares you for adulthood. From communication skills to leadership skills, a summer job offers real benefits that last a lifetime.

I started trading stocks online in 2014 to try and make some extra money as quickly as possible. I think it’s fair to say that stock trading has dramatically improved our (my wife Maleah and I) lives and changed how we live forever.
We started trading stocks when we were living in rainy Seattle and living paycheck to paycheck. I was working at a demanding full-time job but still struggling to pay our bills. I had to get up at 6 am to start trading stocks at 6:30 am when the stock market opens on the west coast.
Looking back, it is pretty amazing that we didn’t just lose all our money! Somehow, we were able to make quite a few thousand dollars and paid off some our student loans. I vividly remember the excitement, hope, anxiety and ecstatic highs that were part of our first steps into online stock trading.
We still trade stocks and write about our trades on our stock trading review website.
