Daniel Sparks

After a brief stint in the U.S. Army, Daniel graduated with his MBA and pursued his real passion: Investing. Writing for The Motley Fool enables him to do just that, he says. Living in the mountains of Colorado, Foolish writing is his connection to the business world. His investing philosophy is simple: Buy great businesses with the intention of holding for a very, very long time. If he's not hanging out with his family or friends or hitting the gym, you'll likely find him writing about stocks or devouring a business book. Follow him on Twitter to get links to his articles, quotes from books he reads, and a look at the sources that inspire him.
