Learn More About Peyton
If you had a million dollars to spend, what would be the first three things you would buy?
I would buy an RV and do financial travel writing. A villa in Tuscany. Provide a fund for financial literacy for high school students
What’s the most likely place people could find you on a Saturday night? Well, if I am involved in a community theater production, you may find me acting and singing for my dinner :-)
Which would you pick: Living on the beach or living near the mountains?
I like the beach for about 2 or 3 days. Then I get bored and hot and sticky with sand, so I head to a mountain lake for hiking and a quiet place to read.
Today's leaders seem to have a lot of trouble providing effective government What would you do to fix it?
The United States was conceived as of the people, by the people, for the people. Today? It is one big conflict of interest, and we have no representation. I would repeal Citizens United and get the big money and lobbyists out of Washington.
What does investing mean to you and how do you see the future?
We have a great opportunity to be owners of businesses through stock ownership. And frankly, you MUST be an owner, because it is ONLY the owners of the means of production that make money in real terms after inflation. The future? Markets provide the capital and direct it's efficient deployment, and that is the way it should be.
