So, what’s my story?
My name is Jim Gardiner and I love learning about investing – and helping others to learn too!!
When I started (about 6 years ago), there was no one-stop shop to get you up to speed.
I was clueless about markets… I wandered from site to site getting all the wrong info and in the wrong order!! It was like a strange form of torture… I messed about for the first year, losing money on ‘gimmicks’… Anyone know that feeling?
There were trading courses that I travelled 50 Miles to attend, ‘Betting Accounts’ to profit from small price changes, and a few “All you need” subscription sites that charged me a fortune to know what their GUESS was, about a company!!
Some readers may relate to this! In my first twelve months, I thought that I was investing, but nope. I was betting, trading and basically speculating, with no iota what I was doing!
But I did prevail in the end…
I now self-manage, my own Long-Term Portfolio… In 6 years (+ 4 month to be precise), my portfolio has grown by 195% without any “get rich quick gimmicks”
That may sound impressive, but I assure you it is not. I have done nothing special whatsoever….
What I did was Buy and Hold… (The Warren Buffett Approach – Why not learn from the most successful Investor in history? Do you think you know better?)
I must admit, the markets have been very kind since I started Investing in September 2015.
Sure I bought sound companies, I assure you, you know most of them and probably use them. (Apple, Google, Amazon, Netflix and many others) But I did not succeed thanks to trading, and I will not be teaching trading in this blog or encouraging it. I also won’t recommend any stocks.
I will show YOU how to work it out for yourself… You won’t need anyone to point out companies that are screaming obvious future growth once you know how to measure them.
I will teach you Investing – Long-Term Investing… For Long-Term Growth.
I would like to save you the heartache I have endured and show you how to get up to speed the right way!
