Alright here's the scoop. I'm heading to this guys house tonight to have a few drinks and watch the Heat game and entertain his offer to be brokering for him. I'm 20 years old, no college education. I don't know anything other than the basics about it.
I met this guy through poker (he ended up on my left one day, we shot the **** for a few hours - I'm usually pretty quiet at the tables, but we kinda hit it off). He used to work on wallstreet. Whatever he does or did, he did it well cus he comes off as a pretty big boss. (50k trips to Africa for safaris and ****, wasteful imo but w/e thats besides the point). I've probably talked with this dude for 10 hours in my life, but they've been conversations that show I'm not an idiot but at the same time he understands my position. (no degrees, and i play poker, lol)
Not to brag, but my scenario right now is I'm a pretty lazy live pro and ytd I've already made what would be a decent yearly salary to most, and thats in just 412hrs total. Luckboxing with a sick hourly pretty much. My day to day down here (from NY, moved to FL for poker) consist of a lot of free time, but I enjoy it and it's relaxing. That'd be what I'm giving up.
I imagine this guy sees a lot of himself in me. As he's young and has made some great money through this type stuff. And kinda wants to have me as his protege. Maybe that's being naive, that's why I'm here.
We're going to be talking about all this stuff tonight, but I'd like a little headsup or briefing in the next hour before I leave. My main concerns are I want to still be able to do my poker stuff (lol I grind like 4hrs a day tho). I don't want to make money dishonestly or by screwing people over. I don't mind binking 2 outters all day, but I just can't bring myself to doing anything dishonest (had an opportunity to scam fo 50k and passed; I like to sleep good at night rather than have a few extra bucks in my pocket.
I don't even know what I'm asking really, I just want to read some words from people who know more about this than I do. And I basically know nothing.
Now I feel dumb because I gave all that backstory and left you guys with no actual questions to answer.
I play live poker for a living, mostly cash 4hrs a day, unless theres a series going on.
20yrs old, no college education
He offers me a 'good business opportunity' thru txt
Told him theres a slim chance I'm interested
we're meeting up at his place in a lil bit to watch the game, have some drinks, and talk shop.
What am I in for? Is it even possible to be a stock broker and not do anything shady? I'm perfectly happy with where my lifes at now, should I even risk getting into this stuff?
