20% compounded annually for ETERNITY sounds good to me!
How about you?
If we play smart (the only way to play) we can get 2000% gains.
It may take solid dedication and determination,
but it has been done before and will be done again.
Who better to do it?

I would, at least, like to be kept informed of how this meme evolves.
I've been wanting to become a broker,
but I've yet to fit the pieces of this puzzle together.
I want to see this idea get off the ground.
Being rich is very extropian.
