Hi everyone! My Ex highly recommended this site (he's planning on retiring by the time he's 50). I'm a new professional on the second round. The job market was horrible when I completed my first professional degree. So investing was something foreign and was not offered to me because I worked at several different jobs at a part time basis. So I'm a few years behind in my investments, but I'm only 30. So right now, I'm just trying to educate myself as best I can to understand how to make a really stable future and not be taken advantage of by financial advisers who drool when they see a person walk into their office knowing nothing (which almost happened to me, but thanks to my ex, I avoided some bad decisions).
