One of the things that hubby really wants to do is online trading. That way we can work side by side at home. He’s really interested in it because he believes he’ll be able to make a lot of money if only he can do it full time. I believe him as far as his ability to make money out of it but to make it as his full time job...I don't think so. He’s not really the type who would sit in front of a computer day in, day out. He likes the ‘money’ part of it but he won’t be able to last just because he’s more like the ‘working’ guy. He has to do something manual or he’ll go nuts. He currently has an online broker but he wants to be more involved and learn the ropes of the trade.
But he has some really big problems...time...as in lack of it. A few months ago he’s able to sit a few times a day in front of his computer to monitor stocks and even did some stock trading but those days are gone. Right now, he can barely leave the shop because they have so much work to finish…and they still have some stuff waiting on the wings so to speak. As a result, his fledgling ‘career’ in stock trading is just that…fledgling. Much as he wants to continue learning more about it, he just cannot. That's just the way it is for now. Recently, he again asked me why I’m not doing it myself. My answer was more of a blank stare than anything because it caught me by surprise…again. He’s not pushing me to do it but he really thinks I’d excel on it. Unfortunately, I don’t share that same kind of confidence with him when it comes to my ability to do it. Maybe one day I will...but not right now.
