I was one of the first few people to jump on the bitcoin train. Bought $5,000 worth of bitcoin when it was only $.20. Sold it at $700.

DINK. I took control of our finances.
Made sure we both got our degrees and got good jobs.
Live below means. Often times called cheap. Maximized all retirement contributions. Paid down debts. Do not "keep up with the Jone's". Eat left overs. Hard work. Constant skill improvement. Worked side jobs.
Next steps are real estate, more aggressive short term investing, and side businesses.

You'd probably do even more by crowd funding a card game themed memecoin.
Then you just have to shill it to Veeky Forums for a pump & dump.

why are you using X instead of numbers?
I get that you probably don't know the exact number after the first 2 digits,
but why not just post 3.7 million / 3 million 700k

desu in the same boat.

Though I can manage with risky loans traded immediately for less risky investments and then assets (on that investment) that can pay the loan immediately while giving me a return.

You only asked about the first million.

Flipped luxury items on ebay and made 15k, started my own restaurant and sold it for 800k, used the 800k and turned it into 3.8 million by shorting everything I could find in England before brexit. Made a few bucks on McAffee Got This

He was also slotted straight out of school into a high level managerial position at his dad's real estate company. He inherited his dad's connections and network. And he inherited the Trump company worth several hundred million when his dad died. And he's extremely old, he has went through a lot of economic growth in his time. His net worth is also 4.5 billion. The loan was also worth 6.7 million accounting for inflation.

IIRC his annual ROE is only 10%. Buffett's is 20% which is evidenced by him worth 15 times more and starting with nothing. Icahn's is 30%.
