I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Increasing your FQ - some words for the lost investor who knocks here

Think for a moment about IQ. Most of us associate the concept of IQ — the intelligence quotient — as a measure of intelligence in terms of a capacity to solve problems. So too with the concept of ‘FQ’ — the financial quotient. It is a measure of financial intelligence. It embraces intelligence in the same way as IQ, obviously with a narrower focus. However, it does represent a whole way of thinking made up of a number of parts such as overall fitness, credit intelligence and budgeting intelligence.

Unlike IQ, you born with it, don't think you do much about it. However, you can definitely over time increase your FQ to transform yourself from being a Lost Investor to an Informed Investor. It is ONLY you and yourself can make it happen.

Start with reading Financial books, slowly over time develop that habits. The next time you visit NLB, stop at Finance section, pick up 4 books to read and set yourself a target to read at least 20 books by end of 2009.

After achieving high FQ, next you will build up emotional strength and your Game of Strategy in building your financial road map to success or even your final goal of financial independence.

Isaac Newton once commented that if he had seen farther than others, it was because he stood on the shoulders of giants.

So where are the shoulders of giants? They are hidden in the pages of books, and in the minds of other Informed Investors. Seek, and you may find.
