Welcome to Marion Investment Advisors
From the Owner:
At age 15, with a job as a bag boy at a local grocery store (my first job was driving an ice cream truck but I typically don’t count that one), I began putting 10% of my paycheck into a savings account. It was beaten into my head to do so, as was the fact that I’d never miss the money, and I needed to build a nest egg for my future. At the time IRA’s did not exist.
At twenty five I began investing money and over the course of the next 15 years I used a variety of investment concepts. Having always worked, and knowing a nest egg for retirement was the goal, what happens when retirement comes was something I did not truly comprehend until retiring at age forty. It’s like a man telling a woman he knows how it feels to be pregnant. He can read about it, listen and vicariously go through the process. However, only by becoming pregnant can he truly understand it.
After a brief time in retirement, which I explain in, The Seven Deadly Sins Committed By the Individual Investor, I returned to the real world and developed a strategy for investing. This strategy is what I apply today for my clients.
