Back in June 2005, I made a daring investment goal of making $20,000 profit in stocks over a year period. I went back to my records today and saw that on June 1, 2006, I have made a gain of $11,000. I’ve only accomplished 55% of my goal. Note, I’ve added a total of $50 in my investment account during that one year period. But nevertheless, it was a good attempt.
