When you decide that you really want to get ahead financially, there are going to be some changes to your lifestyle. I have noticed that for many people, including myself, that means a change in who you hang out with.  Talking about financial stuff, especially your own, in Canada is difficult.  Doing both Financial Services and Real Estate over the last few months has illustrated that fact quite dramatically.  I have very little trouble getting someone to talk about Real Estate.  What is my house potentially worth, what are prices like in this or that area?  Should I get into an income property, etc?  Those are really easy topics for anyone to talk about.

But bring up the topic of Mutual Funds, Stocks, Investing of any kind, and you are talking to yourself in a matter of seconds. Which brings me to the title of this post.  I am looking for help. I would dearly like to connect with some like minded people. People who are interested in having a secure financial future.  I truly believe that two (or more) heads are better than one. If you knew what I know, and I could know what you know, we both instantly be twice as knowledgeable.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. Every day I see the demonstration of that. People with little knowledge, or experience, in an area, making the mistakes that someone with more knowledge or experience, would not make. It has nothing to do with IQ. Experience is the difference.  In almost every case, the person with the most experience, has made that mistake before, and now knows better. So if you are going into an area where you have little or no experience, why not get the help of someone who has made the mistakes and now knows the routines.

I love to learn!! The more I learn, the more I realize just how much I still don’t know. Which is why I am looking for help. I have been working on a stock filtering program, to pick potentially winning stocks.  I have been told that if you can pick winners with 60% accuracy consistently, you have a valuable system.  After a year of tweaking and testing, I have reached 50% accuracy.  But I just can’t seem to get better than that.  I am looking for someone who can help me.  I am sure that I am just missing one or two more indicators that will get me to 60%.  I just don’t know which ones I am missing.  I have tried the tech assistance of the companies that I have taken courses from.  And it is too time consuming and expensive to try out every website that says they will teach you how for $100 to $1,000 a pop.  (they never guarantee results)

I am looking for some one like me.  Who wants to learn, and help each other get ahead.  I really don’t care how experienced you are at investing.  Even a beginner knows something I don’t.  I see this as a mutual learning experience. One of the rules of wealth accumulation is to surround yourself with like minded people.  So that is what I am looking for. Like minded people.  Not a partner in a get rich quick scheme!!  There has to be someone out there!! Just email me at diywealtheducation@gmail.com.
