I am Alex Griffith, a current dividend investor and Citadel cadet. I created this website to help beginners get started in the investing scene. Dividends are the primary focus, but not the only focus of this website! There are many different options when it comes to investing your well-earned money, and I want you to decide where that should be!
I originally learned about my fondness for business through my father, who runs a trucking company. I saw the huge success that he was having, and all he did was approach money a different way than most others that I was surrounded with. He taught me the mentality I should have with money, and with his advice along with the help of some investing greats, I am confident that I will achieve financial freedom through dividend investing.
I am a current Citadel cadet, and am on my way to receiving an Master of Business Administration. However, my knowledge of dividend investing has come from personal research. I have poured most of my spare time into stocks, and deciding what path would be best for me to take. I decided that while I would invest elsewhere as well, I would focus my efforts towards dividend stocks because the opportunity in dividends is astounding! I learned how to invest from investors that I have come to trust. There are those that I avoid, and those that I gravitate towards. There are many great investors that I look up to, including Warren Buffett, Ryan Scribner, and Ian Lopuch. I’ve also reabooks on the subject, including Warren Buffett’s recommended “Intelligent Investor” by the great Bejamin Graham.
However, I do not believe that investing is the most important thing about money. I believe that the most important thing with money, is your mentality. Can you resist impulse buying? Can you determine your financial goals and create a plan to reach them? Can you execute these plans and handle distractions accordingly? These are also things that I want to focus on when I write. However, my primary focus remains: dividend stocks.
This site will provide dividend stock news, and good discussions about do’s and dont’s. This site will give lessons on how to analyze stocks, how to choose stocks, and give you resources to help benefit everyone!
Why am I doing this? I want to spread my knowledge to anyone that I can, to reach a helping hand to anyone that may need it, because I received a helping hand from many before me. I hope that you have a good experience with this site, and if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
