FIRE by 2018

Hello!

I'm another Young Dreamer shooting for FIRE.* I've been reading posts on this forum for over a year now and have posted in the past using a different handle.* I want to reintroduce myself as fire2018 as I now have a more specific goal in mind than I had in the past.* I also recently joined the personal finance bloggers network and have been slowly trying to put my financial pieces together.

While I have done particularly well in Real Estate, I struggle to achieve financial savviness in the securities market.* My more immediate goal is to learn as much as possible in the areas of investments in stocks, bonds, and CDs.* I recently picked up Ben Stein's "Yes, You Can Become a Successful Income Investor!* Reaching for Yield in Today's Market."* I hope that's a good start.

I will be updating my progress on my website, and I will no doubt ask lots of questions in this forum.* See you in Young Dreamers.

Re: FIRE by 2018

Welcome.

Just a word of warning: the frst rule of successful income investing is "don't reach for yield". I have seen more instances of retail investors turning into yield hogs and being sorry for it than I care to recall.
