This blog is dedicated to spreading the idea that investment success is based upon stubbornly following a few (very simple) principles:
- Diversifying your portfolio,
- Minimizing costs (such as brokerage commissions, mutual fund expenses, and taxes), and
- Ignoring all the noise from the financial media about what the stock market does from day to day.
In other words, if your portfolio is properly set up, it’s OK to be “oblivious” to much of the financial media and most of the day-to-day happenings in the market.
About the Author
I’m a fairly young fellow (
24, , 25 , 26 , 27 28, 29 — time really does fly when you’re having fun, doesn’t it?), married, living in St. Louis. Prior to becoming a full-time personal finance writer, I worked as a financial advisor (for Edward Jones) and as a tax accountant for a large real estate company in Chicago. I’m a Missouri Licensed CPA and an Illinois Registered CPA.
I now make a living writing a series of books that’s somewhat akin to Cliffs Notes for personal finance topics.
