This is a personal blog about money, markets, and finding meaning. I'm a husband of 20+ years, father of 10+ years, and management consultant/ business owner. Born and raised in Wisconsin, I now live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm fascinated with investments and the economy. fastfollowinvestor.com is my personalized take on Tactical Asset Allocation (TAA), an investment strategy. It's my niche. First, TAA generates stock-like investment returns while you pursue financial independence. Then, TAA protects against severe losses, so you sleep well once you've become financially free. More DIY investors should know about it.
