Small Purchases & Short Hiatus

I wanted to write a quick post to announce that I’m now a married man! I tied the knot with the love of my life yesterday, and now we’re off to Athens and the Greek Islands for our honeymoon.  A trip like this would have been a fantasy for us just a few short years […]

I was gun shy in May, but I’ve been making up for it by investing $5,306.33 in June so far.  I added $190.61 to my 12 month forward income by spreading my contributions out over several existing holdings; I still own shares in just 25 businesses with plenty of room to expand.  Each company pays […]
