I really enjoy looking at the stock market, and I even own some stocks too. If you look at it every single day, you go through a lot of emotions, one day is very good, one day is very bad, and it’s like with racing, it doesn’t matter what you do, it’s where you finish. Overall, I really like it, and generally, I think investing is good.”
