When I was 20 years old, I had the opportunity to intern and work at Merrill Lynch when it was the largest branch for any financial services in the world. I was amazed with the speed of the business, the complexity of the business, and I really wanted to learn because I’d been investing stocks since I was 13. So, I always had some level of fascination with it.
