Do you still work? If so, what is your motivation?

      You should not kill yourself. Also should not joke about it either.

      Yea man. Don’t kill yourself. It’ll get better. Acceptance of a problem is 90% of the solution.

      A light hearted kill myself isn’t very different than a similar I’ll kill you. Doesn’t require such a somber reply

    Tell me where a family of 3 can retire with 2M in total assets.

    Probably some shit Trump country state only. I’m gonna keep working my ass off.

      Your choice to work is yours. I DGAF if you work till you die. Even after death.

      You don’t get to make up “facts” without being called out.

      And the other answer is BONDs. Multiple muni bonds are 4% yield or higher

      So, again, you still have no clue what you’re saying.

      🤣😂🤣🤣😂

      Oh man, muni bonds. Yes let me put 100% of my assets on munibonds and retire in Alabama. 👌

      You’d be fine in Pittsburgh or Atlanta or plenty of other Tier 2/3 cities.

    $1M in ready cash with a house, car, wife, kids and passive income of 20k/month is retirement....not $1M TC with no time for anything else.

      One must have a wife and kids in order to retire? What if I have a husband and only one kid... Am I still eligible?
      Jul 7
    • Amazon thx1137
      Clearly you must trade that husband for a wife.

    I am a millionaire. But all the expenses of a family still add up. I also like to help the poor. Google matches upto 6k. Sometimes i feel like not going to work. Then i think of the hundreds of kids who cannot goto school if I don’t work. So i work. It motivates me to put up with all the BS. My ego and selfish desires cannot be so important. I know one day I will explode and show the finger. But then I hope God will have lined up the next gig to help me do better.

    $1m is not enough to retire on comfortably. Try $5m and paid off house.

    1.8 M. Mid 30s. Still working but will probably stop this year or early next year. I was working until now because I enjoy being an engineer. Now I want to spend at least a few years traveling and relaxing

      That’s awesome. How much of that is disposable liquid funds? I’m assuming 1.8 M includes your house too?

    • Uber / Eng fujgvceu5
      No house. It's all stocks, funds, bonds, CDs

    $1m is a lot of money. It puts you at 91st percentile of NW in the US.

    It may not be enough for many here to live on, but it remains a number unattainable for most people in a lifetime.

    I expect to live for 50 more years. One million dollars in investment should allow one to spend about 40 thousand dollars a year (using the four percent rule). That isn't enough for housing and food in any place I have lived!

      Meanwhile I comfortably spend less than $40k a year in the bay area, I lack for nothing and if I didn't have a couple of expensive hobbies it would be closer to $30k a year.

      My goal this year is to spend no more than 40k total. I'm in Seattle. I think I will fail, but not by much, and only because of a major unexpected expense.
      TC 210k
