Thought it would be interesting to see people's reasons why they have decided to go down the path of the RR. (for all you noobs like me);

OR,

Why the more "senior" guys and gals out there decided to do it?

Myself I have no long story to tell.  I just saw "Trading Places" a long time ago, and fell in love with movies that had to do with Wall Street/the Stock Market, etc. (no kidding lol).  Maybe I will never sell "pork bellies", but I hope to have as much fun as Billy Ray... (or at least a poorer version of Bud Fox)

Look forward to everyone's response.......................  (Drumroll)

Sounds like you are looking for the "crop report" aka, the easy way. There are no shortcuts, bust your tail for 5 years and you will then have time to post on here.

P.S. it is a great career.

I was not looking for the 'easy way'........

Heck, I was even willing to to sit in the little wagon and ask for change if I needed to (like my hero Billy) LOL

I look forward to the work.  I have been successful my whole life and I don't see why this would be any difference (if It is, I have been forewarned, thank you)

Back to the question though.... Why did you become an RR? 

Anybody else out there?  Bueller?
