How Does the LA Economy Compare to the Rest of the Nation?

The city of Los Angeles has come a long way since its quiet start nearly 150 years ago. What started as a small farming community with deep cultural and religious underpinnings grew into a bustling urban center, now well-known for its elite residents and big, cutting edge business environment. The city’s economy has grown exponentially over the years, thanks in part to a population of more than 10 million people churning out gross domestic product of nearly $700 billion. The companies that call LA home span widely in industry and size, but there is a notable wind of creativity, innovation, and diversity [...]

Want to be an Investor then Just Do it!

It may be my naivety/optimism speaking, but one of the most amazing things about America in the year 2017 (and arguably for the last 2 decades) that our mature market system along with an unbelievable amount of accessible information on the internet allows almost anyone to become an "investor."  There was no good old days with investing; in my humble opinion we are living it today! I am not advocating that most people should be, or even, should want to be an active investor.  My whole point is that if your goal is to be an active investor your excuses are limited. Why do [...]
