Here is a list of a few of my favorite quotes. I hope that you enjoy reading them.

I believe there is much to be learned through the wisdom of others who have come before us or mastered what it is that we ourselves hope to become experts at.

Drop me a line with your favorite or most inspiring quote – perhaps I’ll add it to the list!

    • Sustainable PF: my issues with the lack of tcsaapnrenry has two fronts: one trading fees & second the fact that many investors look to yield first without understanding how that return is possible.Costs aside any investor has to be comfortable with the management team using options to achieve a level of income that the dividends themselves can’t.I’m not saying its a “bad” or horrible investment; just an investor should understand what it is and not assume that its something it is not.

  1. Hey – good weblog, just looking about some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are utilizing.

    • MG … do you reinvest your diendvids or take them in cash to reinvest in other securities? Seeing as how you’re young and looking to accumulate by adding a DRIP onto your holdings you’ll pick up more shares in most holdings quarterly and that will also help increase your dividend income as it gives you true compounding. Just a thought if you aren’t already doing it.

    • Assuming you don’t want to be an entrepreneur and start something on your own, you could actively invest in the stock market yourself; pick companies that you think are winners. If you’re not educated in doing so, take a portfolio management course to get the basics. Also research other forms of investments, like real estate. If you have a lot of cash sitting around maybe try angel investing.
