My name is William John, I'm an internet entrepreneur and amateur stock and property investor.
Six years ago I met my buddy - Mike Robertson - on the golf course. He was developing a significant income from a stock portfolio alongside his day job.
We shared the goals of building a passive income and working for pleasure (rather than a paycheck) and earning the right to retire at an age when we still have enough energy left to enjoy life.
Last year, when at age 33, Mike's portfolio income burst through the $100,000 mark I said: "You just gotta teach me how to do what you do!"
Up to that point I had invested in rental property, but was sick of unblocking toilets, fixing faulty boilers and paying most of my profit to agents.
I had never bought a stock and didn't have a brokerage account. I was a genuine novice investor.
But I did at least have a savings plan, and Mike has shown me how to invest sensibly and profitably in stocks.
I've persuaded Mike to spill the beans about how he grew his portfolio and income on this site, so you can benefit from his ideas and strategies, too!
