The Motley Fool

Dave Gow

Dave Gow has been a Motley Fool contributor since May 2018. After deciding the traditional 'rat-race' wasn't for him, at age 19, Dave began saving aggressively and became fascinated with the world of investing. From age 19 to 28, Dave worked as a Storeman and Forklift Operator while investing heavily, first into property and later shares. In 2015, he stumbled on, and fell in love with a different investing approach - buying shares for their growing dividend stream. By early 2017, Dave reached financial independence, and is now slowly transferring his savings from property to dividend-paying shares. Enjoying his early retirement and newfound freedom, Dave spends much more time at home with his partner and dog, works on his personal blog - as well as exercising and writing some investment articles from time to time.
