An Interview with TMFMuse

Last updated: 6/1/2009
The Fool:
Does ethics or 'socially responsible investing' have a place in your investment approach? How so? How not?
TMFMuse:
Yes, generally I avoid companies whose core values are not aligned with my own.
The Fool:
Have you had a brush with fame, the proverbial '15 minutes'? Tell us about it.
TMFMuse:
Not yet. I'm collecting Karma Points in hopes of stretching it to 20.
The Fool:
Given a second chance, what financial decision would you like to do over?
TMFMuse:
If I could go back far enough, I'd make sure I was born into a very wealthy family.

How I Invest

I find brands and innovations that I like, and then lean on Motley Fool research (Premium Services, Caps, etc.) to verify investment strength.
