Avoiding Wall Street Fads – Investing Locally and Creatively



Finding Stable and Trustworthy Investments

I don’t believe in putting money into something when there’s such an apparent conflict of interest involved. What I’m more interested in is finding transparent and secure investment opportunities.

The problem with most conventional investment options is that you are left out of the loop by people who may or may not have your best interests at heart. There’s certainly nothing wrong with investing your money, but you shouldn’t have to remove yourself from the process. In fact, the closer you can be to the company where your capital resides, the better you’ll be able to judge how much value the investment has. To put it another way: truly valuable investment opportunities should be able to leave you with control of your money.

That’s the philosophy that led me to a less traditional form of financial advising, and I’ve stuck to it ever since. My career has spanned more than 30 years and added hundreds of jobs to the Colorado Springs area. In that time, I’ve learned that the key word in “wealth creation” isn’t “wealth”. You need to take a creative approach if you want to be truly successful.
