I am happily married to the same woman I met my third week at university in September 1984.
I retired in May 2016 at the age of 56 after a 34 year career in banking. My wife beat me. She retired in 2015 at the age of 52. Who said life is fair?
I have invested in the equities markets for over 30 years and success in this realm has allowed us to retire without any financial concerns far sooner than a significant percentage of the population; our 6 figure annual dividend and rental income far exceeds that reported in other “investing” blogs I have read to date.
My observations lead me to believe the lack of money creates unnecessary problems. I have also observed that many people view investing much like a casino. The reason I created this blog was to impart my investment experiences and knowledge for the purpose of helping readers make wise investment decisions.
