I don't see how your pleading on this board is going to help your situation.
Perhaps you should think of the $6500 as tuition. Sure beats spending the money on an MBA, and the lessons you're learning will probably stick longer.
May I suggest reading a little about value investing and a concept of "margin of safety"? I hear a guy named Warren Buffett got his start studying with the man who developed that concept. Seems like it worked for Warren. Heck, it might work for you.
