I am really not new here. been lurking for a long time. I work in the medical field and started investing about four years ago in November of 2011. It was then when I decided to learn how all this worked. Before that I only had what my employers contribution to my retirement plan. I had a bit over 12000$ in my retirement plan on the above date, 4000$ down from 8000$ after the 2008 crash. Since then I have contributed the max to my 403b retirement plan every year, and opened a roth, maxed the last 2 years and 2 taxable accounts.
Recently retired after over 15 years with Vanguard and currently reside in Arizona. Mostly an income investor, primarily BDCs and REITs in IRA with emerging market and commodity ETFs/stocks in Roth.
Early retired 18 months ago. Now full time putterer and bum living off and managing personal investments. Kayak, motorcycle touring, hike, golf, wino, sailing. Miss the paycheck and comfort it affords but glad that burned out feeling is gone. Loving it!
