I have been buying stocks since I was 15. Yikes! that means I have been an investor for almost 50 years! I am a Full Time Investment Advisor since the late 70's. I hold an undergraduate degree in Economics and Political Science and an MBA in Finance and International Business as well as several other Investment Licenses. Stocks didn't get me though college. Scholarships did. Stocks are my passion.I love writing too. If I ever retire I might do more of it! Because of what I do for a living I can't write articles yet. I have recently relocated from the Northeast to Florida.
3/4 of the way there! Trying to figure out how to get to the "ent" from our retirement that we had originally planned.
