Over the years, I’ve learned that I am not a stock market investor. I’m also not a real estate investor. Although I do like dividend growth stocks, index funds, and rental properties, I do not have an unrelenting affinity for any of those investments. The same applies to

We all have big dreams and goals. Every one of us aspires to achieve more in life than we do even in our wildest dreams. It isn’t always easy. The going will get tough from time to time and seldom does anyone take a straight-shot ascent to the top.

You will invariably take some bumps and bruises along the way. That’s just part of life.

Rules Were Made to Be Broken

Rules were made to be broken. Life is just more fun that way… Not only that, but who really wants to operate with a closed mind, anyway? Whether we are talking about investing, or life in general, I think we will all agree that life does NOT follow a linear script — There will always be twists and turns, ups and downs, and a whole lot of degree of uncertainty. As Darwin said, it’s not the
