I'm just a normal guy that loves the stock market. I have been trading as an individual investor since 1998.
I also am a writer and encourage you to visit my website for social commentary and other fun that is elicited from the eyes of a normal Joe.
I started and led a consumer products oriented consulting firm for 20 years. We consulted with many of the premier companies including KO, JNJ, SJM, CL, BMY, G, MMM, GIS, MO, etc. After selling the business I wrote a book on investing in Great Companies and started an investment firm that managed three mutual funds with AUM of $1.4 billion using the principles outlined in the book that I wrote. The largest fund outperformed the S&P 500 during the five years that I managed the fund.
After selling the funds I have been involved in various ventures including investment management, a country music channel, and purchasing consumer debt.
