WHY (THE NAME) SLEEPY CAPITAL?
Investing takes time and patience. My goal (and hopefully yours to) is to take the simple approach of value investing over the long-haul. Sleepy, in a sense, is attributed to the long-run nature of the strategy but even more so to dispel the complexities and anxieties that often come with investing. My goal is to sleep well and build wealth over time. As you periodically check in on Sleepy Capital, you will find investment recommendations, opinions, personal finance and other related content.
ABOUT THE WRITER
My name is Chris and I’m a financial analyst living in the Midwest. I grew up near Warren Buffet, and always had an interest in finance, investing and capital markets. Outside of finance I enjoy reading (audiobooks too), travel and running. I read about one book per week. If you’re interested in seeing what I’ve been reading, please go to recommended reading.
I started Sleepy Capital in April of 2016 as a way to connect with other investors, refine my process and continue to learn alongside others.
