My name is Lars Christian and I have been obsessed with investing for as long as I can remember (it's a weird obsession, I know). However, I am not a former fund manager and I never had a fancy career on Wall Street.
So why did I decide to make courses on investing and what makes me think I have anything to teach?
Well, it's because I've been obsessed with investing for as long as I can remember, and over the last 10-15 years I have spent thousands of hours learning about investing. My dad has been an investor all my life, and it was a constant topic of discussion in my household growing up, and still is.
But why did I not pursue a career in the investing industry, if I love investing so much?
That was actually the plan, and I thought I would be working as a stock analyst after graduating, and then later as a fund manager. But before I got to that point I settled for the first job I could find because I was afraid of passing up the opportunity. I settled, and convinced myself that I would eventually become a professional investor down the line. I did not like that job, and quit after less than a year.
And after taking two more jobs that were not for me, I knew I didn't want to work for anyone. I actually interviewed for a position as a stock analyst, the perfect job on paper, but I realized I didn't want to take a corporate job as a stock analyst where someone created the rules of how I could invest (which would take all the fun out of it!).
So I decided to start my own business teaching people about the topic I have been obsessing over for so long.
My educational background is in business and finance, however I quickly realized that school does not teach you how to be a successful investor. Most of what I know about investing I had to teach myself. Does that mean I know everything and have nothing to learn? Absolutely not! The best investors know that they always have more to learn, and even Warren Buffett still makes mistakes.
But I thought that despite having a lot left to learn, I still have valuable information to share with people who want to learn about investing. And hopefully I can help you shave years off your learning curve, and help you avoid big mistakes.
