We often hear about people that make investments in the stock market and get very rich from it. Some people devote a lot of time to the markets, studying them so that they can identify the next big thing. Some individuals are renowned for their ability to spot a winner and profit from it.
Most of us have neither the knowledge nor the time to study the markets in such detail though and if we do invest in stocks at all, it is usually done through a stock-broker.
The flip side to the higher risk stocks is that there is also the potential to make significant profits, and to some people the risk of making great gains outweighs the high risk of losing. For one London escort, a higher risk choice came through for her, helping to change her life forever.
A Decisions on a Whim
Kirsty, 29, has been an London escort for 8 years and was investing what spare money she had to try and create financial security for herself in the future. She didn’t have a large portfolio but it was growing and was looking on course to meet her goals in the long-term, everything was looking good already.
During one scheduled appointment with her stock-broker though, Kirsty decided that she’d do something a little different and add something more risky to her portfolio. 6 months later it turned out to be a decision that would make her rich.
“I just went with it on a whim really”, said Kirsty. “I didn’t look into the company at all myself, I left that up to my stock-broker”. “I knew there was a good chance that I’d lose on that particular stock but also that there was a chance it could be a big winner for me”, she added. “Luckily for me, it turned out to be a winner, I look upon it as though I bought a winning lottery ticket”, she concluded.
“I am trying not to let it go to my head”, said Kirsty. “I still see the other London escorts that I worked with for so long whenever I can, I’m still the same girl that shared a life with them for so long”. “I’m also trying to be sensible with my investments, just because I got a big winner it doesn’t mean the others will be also”, she continued. “Make the wrong decisions and I could end up losing a lot”.
“I am still going to treat myself though of course”, said Kirsty. “What’s the point in having all this money if you can’t enjoy it”, she said. “I will also be treating some of my friends quite a lot, they deserve it”, she finished.
