I learned to work hard and look busy in my first summer job when I was 14 years old. I knew that if I didn’t look busy, I’d be fired.

From then on, I never took a moment’s break. Instead, I was always looking for something to do.

My mentality changed on the trading floor. I got to observe and learn from top investors. That’s how I realized that anyone with average intelligence can make money in the market.

It took me several years to come to the realization that hard work does not always equal success.

After spending more than 35 years on the inside and watching world-class investors make money year after year, I learned that they all had this one thing in common.

And I want to show you that you can make money too.

In this video, I discuss:

  • Blue-collar millionaires who made their fortunes by investing in stocks.
  • Why hard work and a high IQ don’t equal big money in the stock market.
  • The one thing you need to have right to make money with investing.

You can find my previous videos about blue-collar millionaires here and here.

So the next time you’re tempted to make a trade because you feel you need to have some activity in your account … don’t do something — just sit there.

Money will come quicker to you when you pick your trades where the odds are heavily in your favor, stay even-keeled and stick to one approach that is based on logic and has withstood the test of time.

And stay tuned for my video next week. I’ll talk about a simple idea that I came across when I started on the trading floor more than 30 years ago.

I nodded my head when an old-timer shared it with me. Back then I thought it seemed too simple, and I almost didn’t follow his advice.
