I'm pretty open about it. My immediate family knows the big picture, I don't bother them with the details like what I am invested in specifically. They all know that I am working towards early semi-retirement and that I'll probably get there in the next five years.
A few people at work also know the big picture. Be careful with that though, in general its probably a bad idea.
