I'm Mike Edgar, "The Investment Doctor", and I'm so excited to kick off this blog. This has really been well over 17 years in the making. My mission is to help people invest better for their futures, their retirement, and their family.
The key factor to investing better is making better investment decisions. I would like to help you make better financial and investment decisions by sharing with you the many lessons and tools I have learned over the years and from a wide range of investments I have personally done.
I can't over emphasize the importance of our decisions. Our finances, our net worth, and our lives themselves are the cumulative result of our decisions. Our decisions regarding our education, career, health, life and of course investments have all had great effect on our current financial net worth.
As you might have already guessed, I take a very holistic approach to finances and investing. In fact, I define an investment quite differently than others .. I consider an investment as anything you put your time, money or energy into.
Also, I believe your healthy time on this planet is your greatest asset ... not money. Given that ideology I will be discussing a wide variety of topics in this blog. Most will be directly related to finances/investing and even quite technical, but I will also have many blog posts that are in other areas of life that affect your finances directly or indirectly.
This will result in an eclectic collection of blog posts including what I call "smart transactions", technical articles on personal finances, investing in many different asset types (e.g. stock market, real estate, insurance, private lending, small business, etc.), objective financial article/product reviews, health, pets, entrepreneurship, fitness, life hacks, money mindsets, life lessons, coffee, attorneys, medical care, etc.
My goal is that all of this will be fun and valuable.
The ultimate goal is life optimization, not just investing better. Life is more important than money, but money is an important part of life. Because of this often times the best decision is not the best financial decision.
While I will be providing over 90% of my material for free this, this is a major part of my life mission, and is a business for me. I offer an online course and 1-on-1 coaching, and hopefully these will be the core of my future livelihood.
