I have always been an investor of one kind or another since I was I'd say 12. My 30 year career progressed roughly as follows; Carpenter, Building Contractor, Designer, Developer, Landlord, Part time Cowboy. I consider my self to be a self educated blue collar investor. Grew up on the West cost and then settled in Idaho with my wife of 30 years and our 19 year old son. We feel blessed beyond belief to live the life we live.
