Hi, I’m Paul.

I’m a father, husband, and introverted personal finance nerd. 

Naturally, I don’t have a ton of time and energy to talk about investing with my friends self.

So, I tend to bore my colleagues and family by talking about index funds and ETFs, why I hate salespeople, and how they could save money on taxes if they would just…

I think you know where I’m going with this. 

I need to geek out with people who care about their money.

That’s where you come in.

Maybe you’re just getting started with investing, and you’re trying to learn the basics.

Or, you could be well on your way towards, or even already in retirement, and you’d just like to know you’re going to be OK.

Whether you’re at the start, end or anywhere in between on your investor journey, I’m here for you.

I can’t promise I can answer every question off the top of my head since I’m still learning too. 

But, what I don’t know, I’ll find out, and when I can’t, I’ll be honest about it.

And speaking of honesty… I think I may need you as much (or more) as you need me.

My Investor Story

I’ve been passionate about personal finance and investing ever since I started working after high school (2009). 

I knew I wanted to be rich, but I didn’t know how to get there (or what it even meant to me).

So, being an avid consumer of information, I read books on money. 

Lots and lots of books.

I read everything from basic budgeting and money management to investment books that (at the time) were way over my head.

After reading (and reading) so much about personal finance, I knew that my road to riches was through the stock market.

So, when I was 21, I proudly opened my first RRSP and invested monthly in a growth mutual fund.

And I went on to reap the benefits of investing early and regularly while my money compounded on itself over and over again, and I never had to worry about money again.

Not quite.

I made mistakes, some more costly than others. But, I was fortunate enough to make them while I didn’t have a whole lot to lose.

By now, I like to think I’ve worked out the kinks in my investment strategy. 

But I know myself, and I know investing. 

And that means I know the battle is far from over.

So, Where am I Today?

When I first started this blog, I thought I’d need to keep my portfolio a secret. Like you would judge me for my strategy, or account size or something like that.

But, I realize now that to offer a unique perspective and actually be helpful, I’m going to have to be transparent with you.

With that, I invite you to sign up for my e-mail list, so you can follow me as I share what I’ve done, what I’m doing now, and what I learned along the way.
