May 2013 Net Worth Update -1.17% - Another lossAnother loss this month but quite a respectable one considering everything that took place.
I decided to enroll in the Canadian Securities Course (CSC) to see whether I really want to pursue a career in personal finance or finance in general. I've just completed my first exam and should have the course completed by the next update. This course was $1,100 so a $417 loss during the month doesn't seem so bad now. One day I will write a post about the course and my experiences with it.
I also sold all of my company's shares this month for a nice profit, but will still be buying shares monthly through the employee stock purchase plan.
I expect next months results to be positive again, assuming I don't have any surprise expenses to deal with.
Still slowly moving along.
