Should I include the self-assigned value of my personal brand?

Then there is a sticker, "You ran a marathon? That's cute." At first I assumed it was someone making fun of run-bragging, and then I learned that no, it was probably someone who does 50- or 100- mile races. Bragging taken to a whole new level of competition.

It's human nature wanting to know how we do compared to our peers. In school, weren't our works graded on a curve? In work, we got promotions or raises if our results exceeded the norm.

So, it is natural for an ER to wonder if his/her LBYM effort has led to a savings comparable to that of peers. The problem of course is that people here have all different lifestyles and circumstances, so we do not really know who our peers are.

That said, I feel quite comfortable looking at the poll results, to see where I stand. However, a better comparison can be made with my past coworkers. We made comparable salary, but I have been able to retire early and many of them are still toiling. Several are poor savers, or made poor investment decision to buy high/sell low. We do not share networth info, but I think I am doing much better.

I thought I'd wait awhile as it seemed that people were getting "poll adverse"

550k in liquid assets which is all that matters IMHO as I'd have to replace house if sold and replacement = current value

Pension (2300m net after taxes / health insurance) also not included as it cannot be sold

OK, I'll get on it.

I'm thinking about how to "balance" this out to give everyone a fair shot.

No biggee, Robbie. My pension (2300m) easily covers everything including a solo trip each year. It's the 8-9 person annual family cruise that needs me to use some of my dividends. Will easily be covered under standard monthly income once I tap SSA

Guess I live cheap (due to no mortgage & Prop 13)

Networth is 999,999.99. Let's see what the stock market does on Monday, will I be in the $500,000 - $1,000,000 crowd, or the $1,000,000 - $2,500,000 crowd ? I will get back to you before the poll closes
