Financial Independence and Stock Ideas

I’ve had this website for a few years. And in that time, the focus has pivoted: I’ve covered book reviews, market news, and of course, stock pick ideas. But as a result, this blog has lost focus. And frankly, that’s got to stop.

Of course, I don’t want to be too hard on myself. This is just a hobby, after all. But it is representative of my obsessive focus on financial independence. And while all the current content touches on that theme, I think I can do a better job pulling it all together. Plus, I think I can make things more personal.

At the end of the day, humans want to hear stories about other humans. At least, that’s the kind of information I like to consume best. And as long as you’re not a sociopath, I imagine the same is true about you.

So going forward, I plan to shake things up a little.

While I’d love to blog more about specific stock picks, analysis and the trades I’m making, my employer’s compliance department won’t let that fly. So I’ll continue to write book reviews, share podcasts and post links that I think are interesting. But I’m also going to take it a step further.

I’m going to write more about me. And more about my life. And more about my journey to early retirement. After all, this blog is mine!

I’m eager to explain my personal circumstance, as well as the strategies and tactics I’m using to break out of the rat race.

I’ll tell you how my investing style has evolved over the years. And why I shake my head at efficient market theory. I’ll also write more about investing and trading psychology, and why we are often our own worst enemies (especially when it comes to finances).

Looking ahead, the next couple posts will likely elaborate on the themes above. I will write more about my own background, where I’ve come, what I’m doing and what will hopefully come next.

And all of the content will be created with financial independence in mind. I’m going to share secrets, opinions and points of view that are designed to cut through the noise and help you see what works and what doesn’t.

Next stop: financial freedom.
