Organized by: Joe Howard
Hi ! My name is Joe Howard . After the 2008 financial crisis i became chronically unemployed . After moving from Miami to Seattle Wa to enter into the home inspection business . The realty market tanked . Seattle was the no.2 market in the country at the time . Left with almost nothing ,through a referral. I ran across an award winning news paper that puts poor and unemployed people to work called "Real Change" . At the time vendors would buy the paper in bulk for $35 cents a copy an resell for a dollar . I was the first and so far the only vendor to write his vendor of the week profile. I have also been vendor of the week on two other occasions . www.realchangenews.org . Somehow i felt like selling papers just wasn't enough plus i wanted to become economically independent . So i started to heavily study business and economics . I also continued my study of the financial markets that i started back in 2002 . A couple of years ago i opened up a small trading account and have been trading in small lots with real money . As of now i have about 250 trades under my belt with a win/loss ratio of 70/30 . I have traded companies like Western Digital, Baker Hugh's Oil and Net Applications . Now i would like to trade,raise money for a charity and fund some expenses for my start-up . A fund raising idea like this could be a win-win all the way around .
