1 Month Since Black Friday

Hey guys, it's been a little over 30 days since that fateful day occured and things have gone pretty much the way I thought they would in my retirement post. I've really had to cut down on my spending. Most of my time and energy has gone into coaching baseball and studying for my exams. I have passed my two major ones so I can start soliciting clients and have to pass two more exams.

When my boss told me the tough ones were done I wasn't expecting the series 65 test to be that intensive. I ordered the book off the Kaplan website and it's 500 pages! I should be done with that in about a month then it's onto my insurance exam. I finished my announcement letter and am going to be sending that out in the next couple of days and put in an order for business cards. I still try to get out golfing once a week just to have a peaceful 4 hours. Plus all of my golf buddies are very easy going.

I was talking to a poker player about my job explaining what I'd be doing and he summed it up well for any poker player that was curious: "So you basically manage other people's rolls for them? That's awesome, totally transferable skills from poker." The only problem is I can't really bring it up to a potential client as I don't know how they'll react to poker, however I'm sure after a few meetings I'll get the sense of if and when to bring it up.

However getting ready to jump into a new world, I really think I'm going to enjoy it. I've started doing a ton of research and screwing around with projections and once again I realize why I chose this major. It's something that's incredibly interesting to me and no two clients are the same. Trying to come up with the most optimal plan to maximize their wealth based on their goals seems awesome to me. It's a new challenge to me but I'd never be able to do something that just seems boring and formulated. 

As far as poker I've debated depositing a small amount of money into one of the US friendly sites. However I want to put 100% of my energy into this first before I start to worry about anything else. Plus only being able to deposit a small amount of money isn't great. Eventually I'll definitely be back but for now I'd rather study up and do the best I can as I have a new set of challenges in front of me.

 Onto miscellaneous topics:

  • The NHL playoffs so far really have been great. Game 7 of the Sharks-Redwings series was so good and that goal by Datsyuk to make it 3-2 was one of the most impressive goals I've ever seen. The Bruins are down 1-0 to Tampa, hopefully they can win game 2 and get Bergeron back. Either way it's going to be a very tough series. Boston has big time problems with teams that skate well and Tampa is like a bigger version of Montreal. I have a feeling we're in for a long series here.
  • Thinking about this the other day, I never used to swear at all. even when I started playing poker as a Freshman in college. However after coaching baseball the last five years and being around other coaches who used four letter words like they're going out of style I've picked it up a ton. By far the number one reason for this is pitchers not throwing strikes and it's not even close.
  • Adrian Gonzalez has one of the best swings I've ever seen. I watched him a bit in San Diego but getting to watch him hit four times a night has really made me appreciate how good he is. He makes adjustments incredible well and can drive the ball the all fields. It's going to be a lot of fun watching him the next 8 or so years.
  • I'll end the blog post with Colder Weather by the Zac Brown Band.

The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.

What a great song. I've never listened to the lyrics that closely before. Sums up my last year perfectly.

A great decent blog post, I adore the application. I've got to suggest which will, I’m highly focused on one’s own guide. Most definitely I’ll happy if you possibly can permit me to learn about around one’s own articles and reviews. At present go here Payday Loans Costa-mesa It looks like many of us should one’s own articles and reviews.
