I'm a thirty-nine year old investor who has three years of experience under his belt. After twenty years of irresponsible consumer behavior I decided it was time to change my ways. This change coincided with a job change and a significant increase in pay. I had to decide what I was going to do with my savings. The low interest rates of savings accounts didn't seem appealing. Enter my stock investing odyssey. My goal is build long term wealth by using dividend growth investing as my foundation.
