|Why I Joined
|NetWorth IQ was abandoned. I will try this site.
|Best Financial Decision
|Paying off mortgage in full 12 years ahead of schedule. This was during the "Lost Decade" of the 2000s when every market index was down for the decade. So much for the theory that investing your disposable income is always better than paying down your mortgage.
|Worst Financial Decision
|Not starting saving until I was 40. Moved to LA when I was 22 and spent the better part of 20 years focused on wine, women, and song. I had a hell of a lot of fun though.
|Current Investing Strategy
|I retired on 07/07/2015 at 59 and am now living off my investments. I do not plan on working ever again. I will stay on top of my investments, live a non-profligate lifestyle, and enjoy myself.
