I am a 40 something who has always been interested in investing. I am hoping to retire someday with enough passive income to enjoy the golden years. I am primarily a value investor, believe beating the market is difficult at best. I hold a CPA license, and have an MBA degree- but that really doesn't matter. I enjoy Seeking Alpha for the learning environment, and developing a better understanding of both sides of the coin.

I am a 29 year old who has been passionate about investing since my dad introduced me to this way of life at the age of 12. As I grew as an adolescent I used my life savings to try to earn my fortune in the thrilling world of high finance. Along the way I've made and lost several small fortunes through option speculation and aggressive growth investing and learned valuable lessons that I want to share. I am passionate about long-term, buy and hold, dividend focused investing. History teaches us that this approach is the most powerful means available to build long-term wealth and income. My goal is to teach my readers how to find, research and follow the kind of companies that will make their financial dreams come true.
I now write for The Motley Fool and you can follow my work here:
My original plans were to retire early in 2016 in Thailand and I am still telling my wife that we will.
I was frightened by the 2008 market downturn and believed that my retirement would have to be put on hold.
In an attempt to boost savings I have accepted a long term international assignment with my company so I now permanently live outside the USA and get the foreign earned income exemption and housing credit. I pay very little income tax and almost no living expenses since I am on a full Expat package.
At age 56 i qualify for a small fixed pension with 100% survivor benefit for my wife.
The 4% withdrawal strategy scares me and I would rather use a Dividend Growth strategy and live off dividends when needed.
I am attempting to put together a DG portfolio with my IRA's and some cash that I am quickly accumulating. I am restricted in my 401K to ETF's or mutual funds but I can choose any which one I wish.
Any suggestions would be welcome!
