Informed Independent People Are Nobody’s Fool. Join Us. That’s Why We’re Here. They Warned Us Not To Tell.

MAY 14, 2018. Investing is hared work not magic. Unfortunately, the ranks of professional managed money are riddled with nonsense and fees paid for said. Great financial professionals exist. Yet, most are locked into a conflict of interest.
If money “doesn’t really matter,” why does everyone want yours? Trust is not a substitute for knowledge. Besides, if you have to actually pay someone to help you, how much is their assistance truly worth? And in the end, when they’re wrong, who pays? Right. Pay up front and again on the backside.
When things go right or wrong for your money, it’s on you. It’s your money, and your choice, if you allowed someone else to do your driving. That’s why we’re here. The bottom line is, again, it’s your money, and ours. That’s why we run it ourselves. You can too. We’re sharing our every step with you, as we go. Together we can do this. That’s a fact. Join Us.

“420 To CanAmerica.” Half Of US Are Already There.

APRIL 20, 2018. 420 in America is like Earth Day a few years ago. 420 is not a police term for “active marijuana use.” But it did begin in Colorado. The Rockies now almost represent weed liberation, a budding mecca many feel is now creating the path to a sensible and widely beneficial future.
Weed in American has grown up, grown strong, and grown unrecognizable relative to its ancient roots. Cannabis is in fact a plant in human use for thousands of years. And then it came to America–oops, that was an accident.
Southern slave owners had no idea what they were starting when they imported people from Africa and the Caribbean to work their fields. Then they discovered the weed, oops, again. Then came Anslinger, culturally entrenched alcohol, propaganda, a fruitless war that plows on today, and then business. It will be business that finally drags this “Devil Weed” from the clutches of ignorance and shadow. It’s 420 in CanAmerica.

Jumping For Joy. Your New Wins Now. We’ve Got ‘EM. Sure-Fire Easy.

APRIL 6, 2018. Anyone tired on this lie-detector market? Up and down like some front-loading washing machine. We do not feel any cleaner nor amused. But what can one do?
Troubled times attack our spirits. They rob us of emotional momentum. Little, yet meaningful, wins along the way can make all the difference in both how you feel, and your results.
Have you found a solid dividend play yet? Would you buy a good stock with a 19.5% dividend? Paying credit card debt off is the same. Forget the chaos. That’s a financial win for you every, and any day. Like that? We have more.

High-Fives For The One Number That Creates Winners. How To Get It Right.

MARCH 8, 2018. Investing is a process. Are all steps of the process equal? What step may matter most in creating our winners? Think you can trust the numbers you see commonly displayed? You can’t. Five minutes and you can prove it to yourself.
We inhabit a world capable of returning solid rocket boosters back to Earth in pin-point landings, in unison. But we can’t guarantee accuracy in common financial data feeds. O.K. Adults in the room–mistakes are part of the game. Perfection is a myth and notions of perfection pernicious. You can’t take stock data at face value. Compare, and do the math. Know your #s, and know they’re right. Here’s perhaps the most important number in your kit. But you have to find it yourself, if you want a winner.
