Many have listened to the experts speak on building wealth, but those presentations could leave you more confused than when you started. How about listening to an amateur, who has actually done it on his own?

Herman’s low key and common sense approach which he defines as, “success through simplicity,” has helped him achieve about 12% annual returns for 25 years. The presentation, based on his newly published book, shares his wisdom from many years as a very successful amateur investor. It will take aim at, and debunk, MANY long-held perceptions about stock investing. While starting young is beneficial, any age group can benefit. Investing can also be a very interesting pursuit in retirement.
