But at least they spelled my name correctly and got the facts pretty straight.
Thats the most you can hope for. In my (Bloomberg) interview, I was vilified and blamed for all the woes of the US economy for retiring early

Congrats!

Excellent article. I'm very happy to read an article in Fortune magazine about someone we know that has given so much advise to so many people in this forum.

Good job Nord!

I'm just happy that it's grown faster down the back than it's receded in the front. I'll bet people think the photographer was using a flash instead of the glare reflected sunlight...

Kudos, connie!

Great pics and article. It's especially inspirational given that you are single, with kids and yet able to swing ER.
