Closing in on 10 years as an active stock market investor, I am living proof that it is possible to consistently outperform the broader market through stock-picking. I dove into investing full-time ten years ago and began writing for the Motley Fool as a consumer goods expert in 2010. In 2014 I began writing for Seeking Alpha and have continued there ever since. In total my work has been read by more than half a million investors all over the world. At the end of the day I am just looking to leave each investment a little smarter and a little richer.
