I am investing in stocks since I am 13 years old. Worked two years for Consorsbank, a discount broker in Germany. Always managed my investments by myself. Set up a company in China in 2004. Sold it 12 years later. Obsessed with passive income, and letting my money 'work hard while I sleep'. My goal is to build up a portfolio giving me enough passive income to cover ALL our essential family's expenses, via dividends. Need approx. 75,000 USD p.a. for that, hence a portfolio of approx. 2,1 Mio USD. Let's go.
