Teacher with a part time job that allows me to spend a lot of time grading papers and learning about stocks and the stock market. Self taught on everything..except the teacher gig, went to NYU for that. Live on the beach in the northeast and living the dream, except for the working part, and I'm working on that. Looking to retire in 2024 at the age of 60 by learning to be proactive with my finances. I'm married to a fantastic guy that served and continues to work for the department of defense. and I have an adult daughter that lives far enough away that she can't do her laundry here but can still call to borrow money. I am not an expert on the stock market or finance, but feel I have more knowledge than most and sometimes get it wrong. I hate bullies that say they're only opinionated. I love to change my mind.
