I just tried posting a long drawn out post about my current situation and it didn't show up. That's good because I went back and read what I posted a couple years ago when I first signed up and it was pretty much identical
except that I've padded the cushion some.
Quick re-intro: Turning 52 soon and self employed. I have 2 kids left at home 12 & 14 and my net worth is around 3 million. That includes our paid off house and some land for a possible cabin. Without those, around 2 million invested.
I have an interest in hearing what others who've retired early have to say about the stress they didn't realize they had until they pulled the plug. I really believe stress is the elephant in the living room.
