Introduction

Hello,


My name is Cameron and I wanted to start a blog to describe my journey to financial freedom. Financial freedom being the idea that I can generate enough passive income through the stock market that I no longer need to work a regular 9 to 5 job anymore. I'm currently 27 years old and I'm hoping to be financially free by the time I'm 42 or so. I believe I can achieve this through cutting my expenses and investing my savings into the stock market. My investing philosophy is that of dividend growth investing. I will explain this more later, but it is simply investing in high quality companies that pay a dividend and increase that dividend year after year. Eventually the dividends I receive will be enough to cover my expenses and I will no longer need another job.


I have been investing for the past 4 years now and I wanted to start this blog because I believe I can help offer guidance to others that may be seeking financial freedom. I believe there are a lot of people that could use my help and I want to help others in achieving financial freedom. I will mainly post about dividend growth investing, but there will be other topics as well. I will be available to anyone who has questions about the following topics:




1. Dividend growth investing

2. Credit cards

3. Budgeting

4. Earning free stuff

5. Health Care

6. Taxes



I hope you enjoy the content on this blog and I will look to update as much as possible. Please stay tuned while I get the hang of blogging and updating this blog. If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me at fireby40@gmail.com

  1. Hi - I discovered your blog from a comment you made on reddit. I am in a similar situation as you where i’m looking to build a stronger portfolio. when i got into investing a few years ago after graduating college, i tried the whole scheme of investing in speculative stocks like some biotech’s and i have lost out on many of the great returns shown in the strongest companies.

    i’ll be following along, thanks!

    1. Hey Dan thanks for following!

      Yes, I invested in some speculative penny stocks with the hope that I could make some big returns quick. However, that didn't work and I've realized that slow and steady really does win the race. It may be a little boring, but investing in the best companies in the world really does work.

      Why not invest in a company that is here to stay and will continue to pay you for the next 30 years? I've made some decent returns on principal from these companies as well. Blue chips like McDonalds, Johnson and Johnson, Microsoft, Cisco, etc.

      Let me know if you have any questions!
