Want to start by thanking the group, especially the moderators who maintain this great resource. Been reading and learning from everyone over the last several years and figured I should introduce myself. Been living my name since I started earning money. Married with 3 kids. All three are doing well. 2 out of college with tech jobs and the last has two more years of college. Originally planned to retire at 50, but the money was just too good to pass up. Finances are in great shape. Have always done my own investing. Mainly individual stocks. Finally pulled the plug from a high stress job at the end of 2015 at age 53. My wife and I plan to do a significant amount of travel. I hope to contribute to the discussions going forward. Thanks again.
