By Rick King - President & Founder - King of All Trades Online Community - Over the past year our team has encountered fantastic people from every walk of life. Each one contributed in their own way to turn this community into what it has become - a family of online investors dedicated to prosperity based upon principles. I am proud of all we have built here together and wanted to share a few moments from our experience here with a broader audience. There is no greater evidence of the greatness of our endeavor here than the select comments I have archived over the past year. Here are just a few of the testimonials we've received from our members as we've grown.
Tuesday, May 4th, 2010 - "Anyway. You're quite welcome for the donation. The core members here and at the other site (certain people excluded lol) have helped me tremendously. I'm just trying to give a little back. I can't contribute much in the way of knowledge or experience, so I'll try to contribute with cash when I can. You have a good group of mods and admins who keep things rolling and not letting "knuckleheads" worm there way in to take the site in a negative direction. For that alone you should be applauded. A little more than a year ago My personal net worth was down approximately $300k. That was a perfect storm of bad business decisions and of course the market dropping like a rock. I'm a retired Civil servant, not a rich guy, so that was a lot of money for me. An awful lot. So based on the confidence of Rel, ASM and Sheree, and a few folks who did not migrate here, I'm about halfway back to where I was a couple of years ago. Had I not found "The Group", I probably would have sold my last bit of stock and that would have been a disaster. So all in all I'm doing much better and I "Thank You" for the work you did in creating and maintaining this site. I've learned a lot here as a novice and not once did anyone break my balls because of my lack of "pedigree", for lack of a better word. I've done quite well with SIRI and hope to continue to do well in the future. I think there is still plenty of room to run. So it is I who thanks you. I will try to contribute more in the future. Take care. Tom"
Monday, April 26th, 2010 - "Thanks. The portfolio appreciation that I have seen in the last 3.5 months has been substantial. This site is very effective in providing concrete investment information. The game is rigged so I refuse to pay an investment adviser to give me rigged advice. I am happy to make a contribution to a website that actually adds value the way this one does. As important, and as I told BM many months ago when I made a slightly smaller contribution to your old site, I appreciate the fact that this message board and chat is empty of the rampant racism, sexism, homo-phobia and all the other social networking poisons that infect the broader investment boards. That matters a great deal. Much more than many people probably think. Congratulations on what you have built here (with the assistance of your main collaborators). Best regards, MM"

I love his new site and have put his link www.Kingofalltrades onto my main web site page. It is the only link I promote, because Rick is a true professional no matter the project he is involved in. owner of SiriusNews.com"

Saturday, January 30th, 2010 - "Rick - Welcome home my friend! Although I'm not fully up to speed (dont really want to know) about the BS at SW...Let's try and put it behind us and move forward. As a SiriusXM investor...and gone to investor hell and back...we are approaching very good times ahead. Your site provides...us un-sophisticated investors...a place to get invaluable information...for that I thank you...And I would be remiss if I didn't thank Relmor, Asm, Sheree, and Irish...they held this bad boy together while you were putting your life on the line for us...Thank you!
