Adam Galas

I am a 28 year old who has been passionate about investing since my dad introduced me to this way of life at the age of 12. As I grew as an adolescent I used my life savings to try to earn my fortune in the thrilling world of high finance. Along the way I've made and lost several small fortunes through option speculation and aggressive growth investing and learned valuable lessons that I want to share. I am passionate about long-term, buy and hold, income focused investing. History teaches us that this approach is the most powerful means available to build long-term wealth and income. My goal is to teach my readers how to find, research and follow the kind of companies that will make their financial dreams come true.

Re: ILOD Wed2: Are you an investing virgin?

Oh and no worries about hand holding during the next correction. That's why I do daily updates, as a kind of market wide investing journal/blog to make sure that people don't freak out and panic when the market does something stupid, which is often. [more]
