Hello, everyone!

Newbie here. I'm glad to have found this great online community. I recently had the thought of retiring perhaps, when I'm either 40 or 50, still contemplating on it, however, I realized that I still have a lot to learn about this matter. I'm hoping to learn more from the other members here. Cheers!

Welcome aboard. This is a great resource, wish I’d found it even earlier than I did.

If you have to choose between 40 or 50, most here would recommend 40.
