Like my handle, I work for a large financial corporation.
Married with 2 kids with another on the way, we live in the NYC area.
My wife is a RN in a ICU of a major trauma center.
So nice to be in the company of likeminded folks.....the road to financial success has been lonely and hard.
After two decades of busting our butts, saving pennies and making smart /aggressive investments, we've reached some milestones:
200k combined income
700k in retirement (rollover, roth, 401k, 403b, ESOP, union pension)
80k in 529plans
rental property/no debt worth 120k
100k in various aftertax investment accts
250k primary residence with 97k left in mortgage
pair of trusty old Volvos (pre-Ford) with 120k miles each (good for another 100k or when the wheels fall out
minivan for the growing brood
Really wanted to make the 1mm mark for the 40th birthday and I did it.
Now, I need to set new goals and try hard not to lose the 'hungry attitude' until we can retire early.
I look forward to all of your feedback and suggestions.
God bless this wonderful country of ours that allows us life liberty and pursuit of happiness.
