New and grateful to be here

Hi...I’m John and I’m looking to learn and share. I admire everyone that is facing their financial health in the present and future tense. I am open-minded to others’ advise and perspectives, and I look forward to respectful and reciprocation in our sharing of ideas.

Welcome,John. You will find a tremendous depth and breadth of experience here.
I personally came late to the party, retiring at 70, so some issues did not impact us. However, if you want to retire early, this is the right place. We wish you a Happy & Healthy New Year.

Welcome to the forum. How about some information about you? Age, location, status toward retirement, etc.
Lots of excellent knowledge and experience here, stick around and read up. Share your ideas and we all benefit.

Welcome!

I think you just gave yourself the best advice possible. Face your present financial situation honestly, and think about where you want to be in the future.
