A place to share info and have discussion, mostly on dividend stocks, but including ETFs, CEFs, mutual funds, and other income producing investments. The overall goal being to build a growing income stream, portfolio growth being secondary. With an abundance of very intelligent and experienced posters, and no real functioning retirement board on SI, imho a good place for any retirement questions or concerns.

My personal favorite book to give any young person. The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason 

Two thread favorite reads:

The Single Best Investment: Creating Wealth with Dividend Growth by Lowell Miller 

2006 Edition available as a free PDF online. Introduction and first 46 pages required reading imho. 

The Ultimate Dividend Playbook: Income, Insight and Independence for Today's Investor by Josh Peters 

Descriptions of Achievers, Aristocrats, and Champions, with a link to a printable list:
