Bill Spetrino is a professional investor who has made millions for himself and his clients through strategic investing. A trained accountant, he graduated from John Carroll University in Ohio and spent a decade teaching. A lifelong entrepreneur, Spetrino set out to understand and codify a simple dividend investing strategy for amassing a retirement nest egg, an idea that eventually led to the creation of The Dividend Machine newsletter for Newsmax in 2009. Using his strategy, Spetrino picks the kinds of dividend stocks Warren Buffett or the late Sir John Templeton would recommend — long-term cash generators that also can offer handsome appreciation potential. Personally, he's used his simple system to such great success that in the course of a little under two decades, his initially modest dividend portfolio of a few thousand dollars grew to generate all of his family's living expenses and more.
