I’m a guy, in my mid-thirties, and living in the small European country, the Netherlands. I have a lovely family with two beautiful, little daughters. During the week I’m busy with my fulltime job. I’m also studying for a postmaster degree in IT Auditing and Advisory as an addition to my master degree in Accounting & Control.
It was Joel Greenblatt’s book The Little Book That Beats the Market that got me thinking about investing as an alternative to spending or saving money to spend ☺️. I always felt that working until my retirement age wasn’t my thing. Wealth accumulation through dividend investing keeps me busy when I have some time to myself. My goal is to be financially independent when I’m 55 of age and build a family capital which I can eventually hand over to my two little princesses. I would love to emigrate to another country like the United States, Canada, Australia or New Zealand after becoming financially independent.
I really like to interact with other dividend growth investors through this blog to become a better investor. My other hobbies are reading books (philosophy, history, politics, economics/investing), listening to music (classical music, blues, rock ’n roll) and admiring art. During my journey towards financial independence I’m enjoying life and watching my daughters grow up.
