Contact Me

You can reach me at mike@obliviousinvestor.com.

A few quick notes before emailing me:

  1. I cannot (and do not) offer personal financial advice. If you’re looking for such services, I would suggest searching for a fee-only financial advisor. (The Garrett Planning Network and NAPFA are often good places to start a search.)
  2. I am not currently accepting guest post submissions.
  3. I am not currently interested in selling any advertising spots.
  4. Please do not ask me to review or promote your website, book, software, service, or other product. All such emails will be marked as spam.
