Not sure where to post this. I tried sending this to an Admin back in 2014 but I see that my message is still sitting in the Outbox as opposed to in my Sent mail. Not sure if it ever went through or not. Anyway... I belong to several online communities, and I can't think of one that has a member's u...

1. Real Estate - Whether that means buying a fixer / upper and selling or renting out I am not sure at this point. Have you entertained the possibility of getting your real estate license and selling? If you are willing to work evenings & weekends, it would be a good way for you to learn your l...

I suggest you come up with a plan for the years between 55 and tapping your tax deferred assets. In my opinion the online tools and many financial advisors do a spectacularly crappy job of dealing with early retirement. To make it happen you need to hunker down and learn to do it yourself. Be caref...

Your diligent investment with measured frugality, which results in a far above-average nest egg, is admirable. But it seems to be like too many eggs in one big basket. If you recall stock market crashing many times in the past, no funds, where your money have parked, are escapable. They could go do...

Allocation is probably a bit aggressive for your age. However, given you expect to retire in 10 years, this is probably a good allocation providing you are willing to work more if the risk you take doesn't pay off and your portfolio drops in value. You don't mention how much assets you need to reti...

target funds, or funds of funds, can be beneficial if your nest egg is pretty simple. But, as you are most likely figuring out, it may be better to invest in the funds you need, in the proportion you need it over various accounts. So, what are your 401k options? and have you read about tax efficien...

Some of you might remember some of my prior threads regarding my retirement planning. My last thread was in December and was called Analysis Paralysis, and I am embarrassed to say that I have yet to make any significant changes because I am still unsure of what action to take. Below is our current h...

Thank you all for the responses. They really helped me regain my focus.

I did not make any moves with any of my current holdings, but I did adjust my future contributions for Bonds from 10% to 20%.

I am sure some of you have seen other threads by me. Thanks in large to input from this site, I have come to the realization that my early retirement goal needed revised with better planning. But this thread is more about staying the course when the market is struggling. I am heavily invested in sto...

Thank you both for your replies. I am definitely coming to the conclusion that I am going to have to delay retirement at least a few years. However, as I am mulling over what to invest in via a taxable account, my wife is sending me quotes from RBS. "Sell everything except high quality bonds,&q...

Most financial planners recommend 3 to 6 months of EXPENSES in an emergency fund, not 3 to 6 months of your pay.

Personally I would save until I had 3 months expenses in an EF, then start contributing to the Roth.

It has been almost 18 months since I posted on here, and I regret to say I haven’t taken much action since my last visit. Although I will suggest to my wife we need to come up with a plan, the conversation never takes place. It is pretty much left up to me, and I let analysis paralysis deter me from...

Congratulations Samantha. Have you met with an advisor yet about your retirement goals? My wife and I also hope to retire early, but right now almost all of our money is in tax advantage accounts (401k & Roths). Had I found this website at an earlier age, I would have came to the realization tha...
