Five years ago I found myself in the fortunate position to start investing. I knew nothing and began posting on this site after hearing about it from a friend. The investing 101 tools along with the incredible helpful people on the message boards gave me the confidence to buy my first stocks. With the help of this community and a lot of luck, my investments are up roughly 1000% (including the Motley Fool 100 Index up 99%). A hearty thanks to everyone here. Please let me know if there is any way I can pay it forward.
