For most of my life, I have been a fairly liberal, loose-swinging person. I generally went against the mainstream and was comfortable seeking my own level and being relatively nonconformist. It served me quite well career wise.

I am still known to my grandchildren as “Crazy Poppy,” but I have definitely turned toward the right, not politically, but certainly from the financial/business standpoint. That may be the reason why my two superb financial advisors (and to be ethical, I can’t name them here but if you want to know, e-mail me) are basically of a conservative bent. They don’t take undue risk and this I find refreshing, especially when it comes to my money.
