I think that it all depends on you. Personally, I wouldn't retire with only 750k. I like to spend money. You can always invest your money. I went with a financial firm called D.B. Landers, and they helped me out a lot. I think in about a few more years I will be able to retire with over 1.5 mil. Check out some financial firms like D.B. Landers and see what they can do for you.

You might be able to retire if you weren't paying DB Landers to manage your money. Your debut post kinda smells.

Unfortunately, you came to the wrong forum to push whatever financial planning company you are advertising. Almost everyone here made it or is making it on their own. And you will not change any minds.

John,

If they are as lax with other things as they in potentially infringing on other financial company's trademarks

(this is from the DB Landers "about" page )




then, I'm gonna take a great big pass.

In fact, just go ahead and mark me down for that pass, regardless.

Nice website: "The requested URL /:2082/downloads/ATVBOOKLET.pdf was not found on this server."

John, How long have these folks been around?

Just got a website a couple weeks ago, and the net shows nothing on them.

Please let us know their history, and how you chose them, I'm interested.

WTF, over?

Does "partnership-based connection" mean anything in legal terms?

I'm trying very hard to not provide the marketing-to-english translation for the phrase "partnership based connection".

Suffice it to say, it usually involves a lubricant. In this case you might have to pay extra for that.

The moderators have been on this since the original post. Naturally, it is a very transparent piece of spam.

But we're enjoying the reception it's receiving so very much that we just haven't found the time to delete it....

Back to the original question.
I have known alot of people back in the hills of east kentucky who lived long lives without ever topping 500 dollars/month. They buy staple foods, plant gardens, use wood/coal heat, hunt, dig ginseng, draw foodstamps and live simple mountain lives. In fact, I've known several who have never held a non-cash job in their life. Never paid taxes, never paid SS. It just never was for me, but they seem to do okay until old age and hard living catches up with them. Even then they get a medical card and usually draw a disability check. So, I guess they are the ultimate FIRE. Granted this is becoming rarer as time goes on.
