I am a self-educated investor with a great desire to achieve financial independence and secure a comfortable retirement savings. My education in criminal justice is where I learned to conduct research and analysis. I apply the techniques that I have learned in all aspects of my life and continue to learn and improve. In order to improve the life of my family financially, I began to learn about finances and I have developed a strong interest in investing in the stock market. I love and advocate the dividend growth investment technique.
I have spent most of the free time I had learning about investing and the dividend growth technique from great authors found on Seeking Alpha. Although there is always more to learn, I continue to enjoy the challenge of acquiring more knowledge and experience. I enjoy applying what I have learned particularly in my writing here on Seeking Alpha. I also apply many of my analytic skills and thinking to my articles in order to stimulate discussion, challenge traditional thinking and obtain varying points of view. I seek broad knowledge in order to enhance my own opinion, perspective, and thought process.
The advice of many Seeking Alpha authors encouraged me to prepare my investment plan. These authors suggest that we treat it like a business. I have called my business On2Financial Freedom Investments. Don't be fooled, this is a personal plan. This plan focuses primarily on US and Canadian Dividends to achieve financial independence. I also include some speculative investments such as small-cap, value and growth stocks to fuel the portfolio to purchase additional dividend stocks quicker.

My intention is to share what I find, what I experience and what I see with readers here on Seeking Alpha and to contribute in a positive and meaningful way.
