I’m a 50-year old, electronic engineer living in California. I work in the telecommunications industry doing hardware design.
Saving has been an interest of mine since I was a child… I loved going to the bank to deposit money into my account. I didn’t start investing though until I graduated from college. Luckily I was able to graduate without any student loan debt, so I was able to begin investing immediately.
I’m married with 3 children, with the 1st child heading off to college in 2018… I see some new expenses coming!
I’ve always lived in California… one of the more expensive places to be (the price you pay for terrific weather, I guess). This has certainly made it challenging to come up with new capital to invest in the dividend portfolio.
Nonetheless, I add capital when I can, hoping to continue to grow the portfolio and provide a nice income stream once I retire.
I’m looking forward to sharing my journey to financial independence.
