The Globe and Mail Featured Me in its Me and My Money Column

After having read a post I wrote about Brookfield Asset Management (TSX: BAM.a), Larry Macdonald of The Globe and Mail reached out to me inquiring whether I would be interested in being featured in his weekly column.

Here is the link to his column in which I am featured.

You may want to check out his column every Friday in the Investing/Investment Ideas section of The Globe and Mail.

About Me

I am happily married to the same lady I met my third week at university in September 1984.

I retired in May 2016 after a 34 year career in banking at the ripe old age of 56. My wife beat me to it. She retired in 2015 at the age of 52. Who said life is fair?

I have been a relatively conservative investor for over 30 years. While our passive income pales in comparison to that of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger at Berkshire Hathaway, the annual dividend income we generate from the common shares we own in publicly traded companies and from our rental properties far exceeds that reported in any other “investing” blog I have read to date; as at December 2016, we generate six figures (this does not include cents) in passive income.

I am of the opinion that the lack of money creates unnecessary problems and have created this blog in the hopes of being able to impart some of my experiences over the course of my investment career. In addition, I am interested in learning from other like-minded people who are in the pursuit of financial freedom or who have already reached that level in life.

I hope you find the content of this website beneficial and encourage you to reach out to me with any suggestions you may have on how to improve the site or topics you think would be worthwhile sharing with others.
