We may be doing it wrong. ... I don't know ... how many years do you have to do this to be credible?
What is it you think you are are looking for?
Clearly a poor choice of words (credibility
) on my part, for that I'm sorry. Not saying everyone's opinion's are valuable. But in the context of quite a few strings I've seen here that started with a pre-retiree asking if he/she had enough money or was emotionally ready - and others who have answered to the effect 'I FIRE'd 2/3/6 months ago and it's great. My advice is to go ahead.
' How could someone who has just retired know if they timed it right WRT having enough money or being emotionally ready? Would take a lot longer to be sure IMHO - but then I'm not RE so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. Again, apologies...
Nords, not sure I see what's redundant...
