I'm a father and grandfather. I had a wonderful career as an art director and creative director in advertising, eventually leaving my "day job" to write and illustrate children's picture books. I've been investing for a long time with no formal financial background, but I'm learning every day. I consider myself a "Dividend Bull", and I always re-invested my dividends automatically from no-load mutual funds and stocks. In the past two years, I've become more aware of dividend growth stocks, and I have been re-balancing my portfolio to be more selective in choosing dividend stocks. In light of the last two turbulent years, I'm more convinced than ever that this is a good way to go, eventually stopping my re-investing and just receiving dividends in cash. I thank SeekingAlpha and many of the fine contributors for the many things I keep learning about investing.
