Doug holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Arizona State University, a Bachelor’s of Arts degree and a Bachelor’s of Science degree from South Dakota State University. Doug was raised in a family with 11 children and is currently married and has four children of his own. He knows the value of the dollar and the importance of working hard for your money. But just as important, he understands the need to get your money working hard for you. Doug retired from a fortune 100 company with a desire to make a difference in the lives of the ordinary investor. He firmly believes that when investing one should consider investing for the long term when possible, staying diverse in your holdings, and trying to "be" the market rather than paying extra to try to "beat" the market. Away from work, Doug enjoys golf, hunting and fishing and time with his family.
