Do you happen to remember your very first investment and what it was?
The very first investment that I physically bought myself... I think it was just whatever I invested into my 401(k). I was always interested in investments in college and stuff like that, but I never actually actively participated in the market. But two memories really stick out to me. I just remember when I was a kid, like really young, my dad would come home excited about how much his 401(k) went up. I remember this one specific memory when he was like, "Oh, I made $10,000 in the market today." I was a kid, but I just remember him being very excited about it.
And then the other thing I remember is I was in college when Google went live with their IPO and a couple of my friends were like, "oh, we should buy into this." And I was like, it's Google, it's a search engine. What could they possibly do? Why would you invest in this? How are they gonna make money? There's no revenue stream. And fast forward to today, it's crazy, obviously. I remember that IPO launch. I think it was like $100 or something for a share at the time, which was high at the time, but look at it today.
