Introducing John Roberts
John Roberts is a former licensed stockbroker, financial consultant, and senior business analyst, and the founder of LiveLearnAndProsper.com, a newsletter and website focused on helping people get the most out of their investments and life. With his extensive background in the financial industry and experience managing the corporate IT department of a Fortune 100 corporation, John is a well-rounded and knowledgeable expert in the field of stock investing.
The Importance of Accessible Investment Information
Q: John, thank you for taking the time to talk with us today. Can you start by telling us a little about your mission as an author and investment expert?
A: Sure! My mission is to make quality information about stock investing accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial background or experience. I believe that investing in the stock market can be a great way to build wealth and create a secure financial future, but many people are intimidated by the complexity and technical language that’s often used to describe it.
Q: What inspired you to write “Proven, Simple, Stock Investing Strategies for the Price of a Coffee”?
A: I was inspired to write my book because I wanted to help people overcome the obstacles that prevent them from getting started with stock investing. I believe that anyone can learn the basics of investing and implement a few simple strategies that will help them achieve success. The book is designed to be easy to understand and filled with practical, actionable advice that readers can use to improve their financial situation.
The Power of Simple Strategies
Q: What sets your approach to stock investing apart from other authors and investment gurus?
A: What sets me apart is my focus on simplicity and accessibility. I believe that the key to successful investing is understanding a few basic principles and then implementing them consistently over time. My book doesn’t contain any complicated or technical buzz-words, and it doesn’t require readers to have a background in finance or economics. Instead, I focus on providing step-by-step strategies that anyone can use to achieve success in the stock market.
Q: Can you give us an example of one of the strategies you discuss in your book?
A: I discuss the importance of diversification in my book. Diversification means spreading investments across different stocks, sectors, and industries instead of putting all in one basket. This minimizes risk and balances your portfolio. By diversifying, you protect against market fluctuations and capitalize on long-term growth. Read more about portfolio diversification.
Balancing Work and Play
Q: You have a long and impressive background in the financial industry, but you also have a passion for sailing and other outdoor activities. How do you balance your work and personal life?
A: I prioritize a balanced and fulfilling life, both at work and outside of work. I actively engage in hobbies like sailing and reading to recharge and stay motivated. Time away from work enhances my focus and productivity when I return. By giving my full attention and energy to my tasks, I perform better.
Q: What’s next for you, both as an author and investment expert?
As an author and investment expert, I aim to keep educating and empowering individual investors. My passion is making stock market investing easy for everyone. In the future, I plan to reach more people through books, online courses, and speeches.
I also plan to keep updating my investment strategies and knowledge and share with my audience. The stock market changes, so staying ahead is crucial for success. I have new projects, including a book on dividend investing and a course on options trading, coming up.
My goal is to help as many people as possible build and grow wealth through smart stock market investing. Whether a beginner or an experienced investor, my books and resources aim to help you achieve your financial goals and live a better life.
