Re: Early Starter

When you reach 70, you have to get up for a different
reason. Often more than once during the night.

Cheers,

Charlie

Oh yes I do. One of the main reasons I decided when I was a teenager to ER at 50 or earlier was because I witnessed a lot of old people who worked and saved until they were 65 only to be so sick and old that they couldn't enjoy it as much as if they had retired 10 or 20 years earlier. I'm 36 now and semi-retired. I am working less and less each year and hope to be completely retired by 42.

But thank you for confirming what I thought when I was 16.

Re: Early Starter

Hello retire@40. I felt just the same way and couldn't imagine a worse fate than working your tail off until you were 65 and then being too old and/or sick to enjoy life.
May the force be with you.

Thanks for the replies. What a difference 5 years makes. You guys were right. As time has passed I have shifted parts of my portfolio from individual securities to asset allocation funds. I'm still doing about 1/2 that I manage in individual equities and 1/2 in asset allocation funds in my ROTH and SIMPLE.
