I'm a 30 something investor who starting doing my own investing a few years back. I literally woke up one morning and it hit me as clear as can be that no-one is going to look after my money better than me (I blame it on my alarm clock/CBC planting ideas in my head while I was still sleeping). My focus is on dividend-growth investing using stocks and ETFs. I have a wife and 2 kids and we have a combination of registered and non-registered accounts and of course an RESP. I started this site around May 2011 using notes I had put together prior to that. We live in Ottawa, Ontario.
