18 months ago I felt I needed a big change so I spent every extra minute on investments and education related to my investments; it has paid off.

I just turned the big 4-0 this month. My wife and I will both retire in a few months with about $15M. The interest income will replace our salaries.

We have about $1.5M in real estate notes; personal home and investment properties. No other debt.

I love my work. I currently commute 3 days a week though the commute is brutal. I will probably ask to tele-commute 100%. If that fails then I can easily find a contract minutes from my door.

No matter what I will be working but my job may be simply managing my own investments. I'd like to continue to grow the principal savings.

Such a great topic. It's interesting to see the spread to the 'what's your number' question, and the thought that goes into it.

Working from home really makes w*rk a lot easier on the psyche. Working ~9 months a year helps a lot, too.
