Married and a father of two living in northern Chicago suburbs. Work for a major consumer goods company in the Chicago area. In the "wealth building" phase of my life, and am a frequent reader of many Dividend and Income based strategies with hopes of investing and implementing many of these ideas for future spending needs.
Middle aged corporate type manager, upper-middle income, MBA educated, always saved but never kept it due to life choices. Now a bit late to the saving/investing game but am aggressively managing an IRA pooled from many years of 401K savings. Seek long-term dividend income growth, stability and a reasonably comfortable retirement; may have to count SS in the income mix but shooting for a point where I do not have to.
