By profession, I am a Building/Renovation Contractor with over 30 years of experience. Since I always valued the wisdom and expertise of experts in my own business arena, I naturally sought out financial experts when I decided to invest my hard-earned money in the stock market. Thus I initiated and maintained numerous accounts monitored by several stockbrokers employed by various prestigious financial institutions. The faith I invested in these financial professionals proved to be largely unfounded. After only 6 years, their best advice had caused my accounts to shrink in value by hundreds of thousands of dollars.
