An Interview with TMFMileHigh

Last updated: 9/21/2009
The Fool:
How do you define success?
Making enough money doing what I love to let the family live comfortably.
The Fool:
What has been your best work experience, and what made it so great?
Writing for the Fool. It's an intellectually engaging assignment, and my colleagues are also my teachers. I'm blessed.
The Fool:
Tell us about your greatest personal success, not necessarily finance related.
This one is easy: Marrying my wife and watching my kids grow. Nothing is better.

My Story

Tim Beyers has been a regular Fool contributor since 2003. Today, he covers the business of comics and pop culture entertainment as well as startups and innovation. If it has to do with the fantastic or unimaginably geeky, chances are he's covering it in some form. Tim is also a contributing analyst for David Gardner's Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova services, where he recommends and invests in disruptive ideas. His favorites use technology to create competitive advantage and, consequently, generate mountains and mountains of moolah! Yes, cash! Millions and millions of dollars in cash! Bwahahaha! (Oops, sorry.) Tim's favorite investing book is still One Up on Wall Street, but Hewitt Heiserman Jr.'s It's Earnings That Count is a close second. He earned his undergraduate degree in communications from California Lutheran University and completed his master's degree in the same field after winning a full graduate scholarship to Syracuse University. Tim lives with his wife and their three children in suburban Denver. Digitally, he lives on Twitter, where he's known as @milehighfool.
