My goal here is to learn and share ideas. In my current profession, I became an expert through trial and error, and discussions with peers. I am hoping for a similar outcome when it comes to investing. It all started in about 2008, and became increasingly more serious since 2012. I try to treat my mistakes and missteps with respect, and if I do not learn the first time - I can always repeat them! For that, I only need to avoid biting off more than I can chew.
My current non-cash positioning is ~80% in dividend/DGI stocks (conservative, income oriented), and ~20% high risk based on my visions of the future, where I let ideas and risk run rampant (solar energy, lithium miners, 3X leveraged ETFs with daily settlements, derivatives, and similar scary stuff).
