Starting from Scratch


I started this blog when I was still in school at The Ohio State University. My first post was back in October of 2016. I would jump from topic to topic with no clear path or direction. Here we are in July 2019 and I have started to figure some things out.

I graduated in the spring of 2017 and got my first job working at a phone site in the financial (ish) sector. As more time has passed, I’ve started getting a much better idea of what I like doing, what’s important to me and what I believe is the best path to take the blog. The Uninformed Investor won’t focus on individual stocks or analysis, there won’t be any, “why stock ABC will go up/down X%” or, “How to make money fast”. Instead, I want to start from scratch. I’ve come to realize there are too many people who don’t know or understand the basics of investing. Not to say I know everything, but I have seen this lack of knowledge lead to wrong decisions being made. People being taken advantage of by sales people and misled by financial advisors, and it’s not okay.
