  2. General Personal Finance Talk
    Hi all, This is my first time posting here. So when I was in my early 20's my Dad freaked out on me for not wanting a real job... I told him I wanted to invest and of course he said get a real job and by that he meant an office job. I've never been one for 9-5's and while I tried it out, it...
