About

Hello. Thank you for visiting!  

     I am starting this blog on February 23, 2016 as a way to make myself more accountable for my investment decisions and learn more about investing in general.  I am in my mid-twenties and have been working for a few years now.  I have always been interested in how businesses work and their impact on the world.  As we know, the news will impact market prices every day in either direction. Yet, I quickly learned that timing the market was nearly impossible.

     I eagerly began investing in June of 2014. To nobody's surprise, my first stock purchase was Apple.  Apple made a run that year with the introduction of the iPhone 6 and I made a quick gain! Unfortunately, I became overconfident and began investing in stocks that I thought would earn me some quick, easy cash (The market always goes up right?).  Since then, I have been experimenting with many different strategies which have left my holdings to be all over the place.  Often times my decisions were based off of a whim and without much research done in advance.

     My goal is not to search solely for dividend stocks, but to build wealth while creating a core portfolio of strong dividend paying stocks.  More importantly, I hope to learn more about the stock market and research techniques and share them here in my blog.  My plan is to make automatic purchases in order to control myself from trying to time the market.  As I am in my twenties, I do hope to build a strong core portfolio, but also plan to integrate growth stocks and who knows maybe one day stick my toes in options trading.

This website is a work in progress, but thank you for stopping by.
