Oh, I wouldn't worry about it. The fact that you're on this forum and have an early retirement mindset probably puts you ahead of a good 90% or more of the general population

I always based Net Worth on investable assets without real estate.

Age 46 for the first million.

Took another twelve years to reach five million.

Age 51 when we first noticed it. We've recently hit 5 million 7 years later.

Don't think it matters one way or another since you are here too. It's not how much you have so as much as what you MAKE of what you have. Reading the posts many have "won" and "lost" a million.

Yep... since I can live a kingly existence on less than 30k annually, my 2M feels more like 5M.

... and since my yearly expense is about $90k here in Bay Area/CA, my 2M feels more like $500k. ...

You guys still gonna talk to me, or will it be one of those things that over time, I notice I'm not being invited to as many events as I used to be, or I see you guys in a group on the other side of the room talking - and I'm not part of that group.......or I walk into the room and it goes strangely silent

However, with a 760K portfolio, an AA of ~60/40, and a draw that is ~2% of the current value, I occasionally wonder when I'll hit $1M.

I guess you will be asked less frequently for the Grey Poupon going forward...

Va,

To help keep things in perspective:

- Over 22,000 registered users on this site and
- Less than 100 responses to this thread.

I think we have a wee bit of selection bias in these responders.

Also have you tried to put a dollar number on the value of your accrued SS benefits? I suspect this may be quite a large number. Any pensions would also help things.

Bottom line - Don't get discouraged!

-gauss

I'm not sure what this means due to inflation, but it's still somewhat interesting.

For us (household) net worth hit 1M at 38. This is about 9 years after I got out of grad school.

But if it involves putting it all in one stock, well, I am too chicken for that. And if it is about working for some companies for stock options, I am too old and tired for anybody to want me, and then I am also retired.

Darn, it's hard to keep up with the Jones when you have no earned income to buy stocks, let alone drawing down your stash for home repairs, buy health insurance, put gas in your motorhome. And then, I got reminded that I needed to halve my number because I am married. There goes the "multimillionaire" label.

I feel poor!

Yes, Vancouver. With brief respites from the rains in the Baja. And summers in the Gulf Islands. No kids. No debts. Modest home. Inexpensive hobbies.

It can be done. And we do.

A smart man only believes half of what he reads and hears, a wise man knows which half to believe.
