About Mike

Favorite investment book: Four Pillars of Investing – William Bernstein

I’ve had an interest in finance for at least 15 years, however starting in Fall of 2006, I started gaining a huge interest in personal finance. I think having a fairly sizable mortgage along with not getting any younger, motivated me to try to take stock (no pun intended) of my financial situation particularly with respect to retirement.

During the process of assessing our retirement portfolio, retirement contributions, debt repayments, retirement lifestyle etc, I’ve learned about a lot of new things and the financial blog community has been one of the best sources of information for me.
