Hello everyone and welcome. The purpose of this blog is to share with everyone my journey to financial freedom through dividend growth investing. I want to lay down a roadmap, one day/week/month at a time and hopefully in the process motivate others to save and invest. I will try to answer any and all questions/comments on this blog and if I could influence even one person to start their journey to financial freedom or help keep motivated those who have already started on their path, it would be an honor.
I wanted to start this process early in my investing career so that you all could be involved from the very beginning. Hopefully you enjoy this as much as I do, and you stick around as I populate the blog with more content. Thank you for stopping in, I appreciate you all so much!
About the Author
My name is Neil and I grew up in the beautiful state of Montana. Growing up my family didn't have a lot of money so frugal living was something I learned from a very young age. Most of my hobbies required very little to no money, camping, hiking, wrestling, throwing dirt clumps you know the usual things you would expect from a young Montanan.
When I reached the age of 18 I decided that I needed to go on a grand adventure. I signed on the dotted line and shipped off to United States Air Force basic training. I served for four years in military intelligence working equally with the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force. By the end of my time I was all adventured out. I have always been driven by challenges so in return for my service my good uncle Sam paid for me to go to college. I studied mechanical engineering and statistics for four mostly sleepless years somehow coming out of the other side with my bachelors degree at the ripe age of 28.
After college I selected what seemed like the coolest job offer of the bunch. A chance to work for the US Navy as a Nuclear Engineer. Life found me off to the pacific northwest where I currently live and work. So here we are, starting off on the next chapter: financial freedom. Come on down and stay awhile, watch and learn with me, share your successes as we all work together to reach financial freedom.
