My dear readers,
Thanks so much for coming to my website.
Right know you don’t know me. You don’t even know my name. But soon enough, you will. I’m going to be your reference guy. Or even your go-to-guy. That’s because, whenever you feel the need to have something explained to you from the world of finance and investing this is the place you’re going to come to.
I’m Kevin Monk and this is my website. I called it Finance for Dummies because this is what I was in the beginning and still am, sometimes – a dummy. In other words, back when I was 25 and I wanted to take life into my own hands and start down the path of investing and finance, I wished there was a tool or a person or a bot or anything, really that could simply explain to me all those words and concepts that I didn’t get.
Right now, those days are long behind me and thank goodness for that. The main reason is that now I can impart all the knowledge and experience I gained through the years with you in simple yet comprehensive articles that explain the basic concepts of the financial market.
Because this is what this site is all about. Ever wondered what an ETF is? I have an article prepared for that. Did you come across the term ‘mutual fund’ and didn’t know what to make of it? No worries. I have an article for that as well. This is exactly what you will find on this website. A summary of the all the concepts you need to know when dealing with investing and the financial market.
Still, don’t feel like this is the only thing on here. I also insert opinion pieces from time to time, to give you a taste of my knowledge and experience, I share advice and look forward to hearing what you have to say as well. I really want this to be a learning experience for everyone, including, why not, for me. The market is an ever changing entity. It breathes. It has life. There are new things that come up every day and, in order to be successful, you need to stay on top of them.
Therefore, let’s stay educated. The website might be called Finance for Dummies, but once you browse through it and read a couple of articles, you’ll feel like the smartest person in the room already, I guarantee it.
A Little Bit about Me
I’m a self-made man from Texas. I graduated from the Texas University in Austin with a degree in Finance and the one thing that brought me where I am today is one marvelous idea I had back when I was 25 – to retire early. And I did just that, by studying the market and then starting to invest. Now I have a gorgeous wife, Tina, and two wonderful boys, aged 15 and 17 whom I hoped would both become baseball players, but I think they’re going to be singers or actors by the looks of it!
