Over the past 7 years we've had success with stock advisor.
Rebuilding post divorce- Ex thought money came from pixies or something.

I was new and over bought (lucky us) NFLX/AMZN in 3 of our account (and had extreme high risk exposure as all three accounts were majorly in NFLX pre/post split).
On the advice of a friend I've lowered and spread out risk a bit and sold out of most shares, AND don't have duplicate positions across accounts.
We now have 5 accounts:
Wife's Trad IRA: started around $14k now $80kish, strat going forward - primarily dividend plays with covered calls/short puts to cover/recover positions.
Wife's Roth IRA: started last year, $3kish, buy/hold dividend stocks, eventually same strat as tradira.

My Trad IRA: $127k ish :Aggressive buy/hold combo option strats with high probability wins.
Roth IRA: $17k ish : conservative options trading with limited risk positions
Margin: new account $2k+ish aggressive options
My work 401k: WF aggressive fund something like wf 2034 fund or something, 6% matching, currently contributing 11%, all raises get rolled in annually.
