very much for writing your book “Income And Wealth From Self-Directed
Investing”. The simple, yet detailed step-by-step instructions on
purchasing and maintaining a portfolio are life changing! I feel very
lucky to have found this book"...MOODY
"This book provides an
education in investing, for those who want to take
control of their own money. 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 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
...Finally, I have found the way to reorganize
my investments... It fits my investing style
and goals perfectly. I have been a self directed dividend/growth/value investor
for the last 5 years after bailing out of advised management provided by
various firms since about 1998...."..ROBERT
"... 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
"I purchased this excellent guide in
January 2020" ....DAVID

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