Novice investor just getting started like the idea of owning gold but find silver more affordable and a better use for bartering. Looking to move 457 contributions to a investment vehicle that will keep up with hyper-inflation. Not sure of timetables but feel the sooner the better. Looking for ways to keep uncle sugar from taxing our hard earned cash that has taken over 30 years to accumulate. Need some help in determining which way is best? thanks

I started to investigate the dividend investing strategy in 2010, it took me until 2012 to actually do anything about it (new jobs, new houses, new kids, fear of the unknown and perceived increased financial risk). Derek Foster’s books initially got me interested in DGI.
It wasn’t until I started helping my mom with her finances after my father passed away (during great recession) that I realized their financial advisor had as much accountability as the weatherman…maybe less. I knew it was in my best interest to take control of my retirement and I’m now fully self directed and loving it. Of course wishing I started sooner and the chance to have the great recession to do over….
