You'll learn how to choose stocks for your own self-directed portfolio.   A software program is also available, free, with the purchase of this book.... Ian MacDonald will show you how to choose 20 stocks for your portfolio, each yielding at least 6% in annual income. The income from your chosen stocks will provide a comfortable retirement.  This is more than just another self-help book. It can be a lifesaver."...ALLAN



"...some great advice and very easy to follow....The school system should make it a mandatory read by at the least grade ten or twelve. Chapter 11 is worth the price many times over as a life lesson for young folks.  I wish I had seen chapter 4 many years ago...You must be a very patient man to have researched and written chapters 13 to 16".....WAYNE



"...This book is great.... Thank you for the great insight!".....GENE

."I have not put your book down I since started reading it"...ANDREW



"...I am already a DIY investor ... and will use your scoring system to double check against my current stock picks.... I’m interested to apply the scoring to my US stocks."...GORDON



"... I was trying to find an adviser who could review my portfolio and provide self guidance. I found that most advisers are either Asset Under Management, Brokers, Insurance or Annuity salesmen. They either charge a big fee to manage or upfront fee to purchase an insurance or annuity policy.  I found a few people online who really want to educate people. Here are a few I follow: Paul Merriman, Chris Pedersen, Michael Kitces, Roger Whitney and now Ian MacDonald!"...RON

                      IAN DUNCAN MACDONALD



Raised in a Northern mining town, Ian paid his way through university working in those mines. This employment gave him insight into the problems of commodity investing e.g. constantly fluctuating world prices, unionized workers, remote job sites, absentee owners far removed from the source of their wealth, government interference, etc.

His first job, after graduating from McMaster University, was with the large international commercial risk information company, Dun & Bradstreet. Every morning, he interviewed business owners and every afternoon he wrote reports on the viability of those businesses for banks, insurance companies and trade suppliers. His business education was further enhanced when he progressed to selling D&B's marketing information to sales managers, advertising agencies and marketing managers.


At the age of twenty-five, he became General Manager of that Marketing Services Division for Canada. At twenty-eight he was promoted to General Sales Managers for all divisions of the company. This included a sales force of a 100 sales representatives in a dozen offices.

When told that he could not become president of the Canadian company without first working for D&B in the USA, he left and joined a Canadian conglomerate. Here he was simultaneously General Manager of Screening Systems International (a service that screened senior executive job applicants) and President of Inter Continental Collections ( a small collection agency).

When an opening, as Ontario Regional Manager, arose at Creditel of Canada Limited, he left to learn more about the collection agency business. It had intrigued him that millions could be made from discarded "bad" accounts. Creditel was the largest commercial collection agency in Canada, with 15 branch locations.


 A few years later, he sought out the job of Senior Vice President of their money losing, credit reporting division.  It quickly became the largest source of revenue and profits for Creditel.  This made it an acquisition target.


 Equifax Inc, another large, international risk information conglomerate. bought Creditel to acquire the new technology that Ian had created.  They quickly sold off the collection division.   Ian retired from Equifax 9 years later as a Vice President in 2005. 


In 1996, he had incorporated Informus Inc to manage the anticipated sales of his art, writing, and consulting services.
