“I think that the minute that you have a backup plan, you’ve admitted that you’re not going to succeed” – Elizabeth Holmes
Hold on, let’s take a step back. My name is Chris Mason also known as “Big Chief Mason” and I’m the humble author of this blog. If you’re reading this, I’m assuming it’s for one of three reasons.
- You’re familiar with my fake news or general internet trolling, and know me as “Big Chief Mason”. If so, thank you for making it to my blog. Much like Warren Buffett’s “Letters to Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders”, my blog deserves a permanent bookmark in any serious investor’s mind. Come to think of it, this blog may be the only thing worth reading. At the very least you should subscribe.
- You’re a concerned spouse or friend and found this open in your significant other’s browser window. You’re worried, and also extremely nosy; what has your life partner been doing on the computer all day? He says he is “investing” or “trading stocks” but it seems like your shared bank account keeps getting smaller and smaller! Well I can assure you that this blog contains no… corrupting imagery. My goal is merely to inspire your loved one to work smarter, not harder, and stop losing your hard earned money. In fact, it probably wouldn’t hurt to start reading a few posts yourself, for your significant other’s sake of course.
- You have never heard of me, or what I am capable of. That’s okay. Perhaps you are a stranger who simply stumbled upon this blog by chance. Perhaps you are new to investing and are eager to learn the ropes. Or maybe you’re a frustrated veteran looking to expand your mind and add some new ideas to your trading strategy.
Regardless of how you found your way to my blog, I am happy you are here. I appreciate the time you will spend reading my words, and for supporting my work. I promise to not let you down my newly acquainted source of mon- I mean friend! I’m best known for my ridiculously accurate due diligence posts, which poke fun at the ridiculous lack of logic many users seem so fond of when deciding whether or not to invest in a company. I also volunteer at the local animal shelter and enjoy writing poetry in my spare time.
This blog can be seen as the intersection of success and investing. On my journey, I have accumulated a plethora of knowledge and lessons which I am burgeoning to share with you. Knowledge and lessons which have made me quite an emotional investor. Oh, what was that you asked? What does it mean to invest on emotion alone? Now that, is a fantastic question.
An emotional investor is a successful investor, but emotional investing is so incredibly divested from such trite concepts that I had to give it a different name. Unlike a traditionally successful “value investor” like Warren Buffet, an emotional investor is defined by his or her mindset. An emotional investor exudes confidence, turns heads, and stands out from the crowd! The man’s man so to speak! My wish is that this blog will help unleash your inner emotional investor and help you succeed, not only in the world of finance, but in life as well.
I am not a financial adviser, and I would never claim to be one. However, I’ve experienced some very unique circumstances which have helped me learn some incredibly valuable lessons. In fact, this blog is motivated by the same reasons I started the Big Chief Mason persona. It’s not simply a check mark on my bucket list or a fun past time, this blog is a labor of love. Investors struggle to develop an emotional framework that allows for success. Everyone does. Whether you’re struggling to achieve your financial goals, or already on that path already, I want this blog to help improve your mindset. I want this blog to help you achieve your wildest dreams. I want you to be as successful as me, and I truly believe you can be. But it won’t be easy.
Becoming an emotional investor is hard. It requires dedication, information, and first hand experience. You will not make 10,000% gains with these methods – perhaps at least not overnight. And I won’t tell you which stocks to trade, or the strategies I use to trade them. Rather, I hope to sculpt your mind, re-engineer your philosophy of life, and help you embrace your emotions…
If you are ready for success, proceed. It’s time to invest emotionally. I believe in you, with all of my heart.
