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.

I’m a Missouri Licensed CPA, living in St. Louis.
I make a living writing a series of books that’s somewhat akin to Cliffs Notes for personal finance topics. I’ve been doing that full-time since 2008. Prior to that, I worked as a financial advisor (for Edward Jones) and as a tax accountant for a large real estate company in Chicago.
