I am a small business owner and former CFO and COO. I am an active investor in both stocks and small private companies (angel investor). I recently changed my investment methodology to follow more of the CAN SLIM approach. I'm still learning though so right now I'm a hybrid!
First off, I am continually amazed at the quality of people on SA and their deep analyses and facts. I enjoy the discussions and appreciate learning from others who have particularly keen insights into certain sectors (especially gold/silver, oil and gas, miners, and, increasingly, defensives).
Lately my specific interest has shifted from the energy sector to the mining sector, particularly precious metals. I have also two added Water Utilities lately and am have started looking at ERII. PCL is also intriguing to me if there's a pullback.
CPA with an MBA who is just trying to stash away enough to retire one day.
Am terrified of inflation. I have a framed 20,000,000 1923 Reichmark at home (was used to buy a postage stamp) to remind me of what inflation can do.
I used to be classified as a moderate Republican who believed in personal (and social) responsibility, but now that classification is called "liberal". There are no more "moderate" Republicans. Go figure.
I like to play low limit poker.

Have shifted my primary focus to wealth accumulation through investing. Married 28 years, child-free by choice. No political affiliation, disgusted with politicians and politics. Had my first small business at the age of 17, repairing bicycles out of the family garage. Avid musician and singer, lifelong love of bicycling and the outdoors, lifelong interest in transportation, attempted to build an electric car at the age of 18, ran out of money. Fascinated by technology, voice recognition, music, RVs, logic and rhetoric, languages, science, psychology. Greatest challenge has been developing self-awareness while overcoming the effects of my upbringing, turning out to be a lifelong task. Heavily influenced by the work of Freud and the writings of Dale Carnegie.
