Bill Spetrino is a professional investor who has earned millions for himself and his investors solely through strategic investing. A trained accountant, he graduated from John Carroll University in Ohio and spent a decade teaching. A lifelong entrepreneur as well, Spetrino set out to understand and codify a simple dividend investing strategy for life, an idea that eventually led to the creation of The Dividend Machine. He wrote about it in his book, Consume, Consume, and Consume More, covering how to pick the kinds of dividend stocks Warren Buffett or the late Sir John Templeton would recommend, long-term cash generators with handsome appreciation as well. His dividend picks now generate all of his family's living expenses and more, and they keep on growing. He consults with a worldwide base of clients on investing and tax planning from his home in Ohio.
