About

The purpose of this site is to work with readers to build wealth and passive income in addition to their active income, and ultimately, to become financially free. More specifically, I advocate dividend growth investing, have articles for new investors and dividend stock analysis reports for experienced investors, and also offer personal finance tips.

About me:
I’m an engineer, an investor, a writer, and someone who lives lightly. I’ve been avidly investing for six years now and use this site to share what I uncover to as many people as possible. I view money as a valuable resource, and resources can help you achieve your goals and increase your options in life, whatever they may be. As a disclaimer, I’m not a financial analyst or any sort of personalized investment adviser; I simply share my opinions from one individual investor, to other individual investors.

My primary investing strategy is to invest in appropriately valued dividend stocks with robust competitive advantages, and then to hold onto them for long periods of time as the passive income stream grows exponentially. I supplement this strategy by buying bonds, writing options, and utilizing indexed ETFs.

You can view my portfolio to see which companies I currently own shares of.

You can check my different categories:
Stock Analysis Reports
Quick Ideas
Minimalism

It’s probably best to start here.

Thanks,
-Matt
