    mikejasper430: Hello Geoff,
    Your writing seems to make sense.  I keep wondering your backround.  Someone asked me who you are and why I believe what you say?  Maybe
    I hope you believe what I say because what I say makes sense. Not because of my background.

    No. I can't offer you much help here. I've written about how I got started investing in stocks before. And I was once interviewed and gave a little of my background there:


    I used to write a blog:


    You can hear my voice if you check out these past podcast episodes:


    I'm not sure how that helps with learning my background. But there's a little more information in there about me.

    Since 2006, everything there is to know about me is pretty much online. I wrote a blog, podcast, etc. Then I started writing for places like GuruFocus. And now I'm working full time for GuruFocus (in Texas). Previously, I lived in New Jersey.

    If you're looking for an impressive educational background or something - you're not going to get that with me. I dropped out of high school.

    I'm about the least educated person you'll ever meet.

    But I've been investing in stocks and thinking about investing and writing about investing for almost half my life now. I started at a very early age. And, basically, that's my background. Whatever I picked up from books and experiences and talking with other investors.

    There's nothing more formal than that.

    Hope that helps.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
