Eventually found my way back into real estate and in the past several years I've been slowly growing my own real estate investment portfolio. Planning on some good things happening with this in the next year (expanding, bringing in partners).

Quick update because the plans have changed a little. It's been a busy start to the year with acquiring more properties, networking, traveling and doing a lot of due diligence. Through meeting some great people things have kind of evolved from a "buy and hold" strategy to now I've been offered an opportunity to join an investment banking firm. My focus will be on the syndicated/institutional real estate side of the business. So I've just started working on getting the securities licenses that are required.

Don't forget about all us poor people. :-D

I am retired.  I'm 62, and I've been retired for 2 years. 

I helped a guy start a really weird little business 25 years ago.   We did well, and here I am.

I hope to join you in 3 years. We were frugal and saved a lot. I'll be 59.

Nice!

My wife and are are frugal, but haven't managed to save much of anything. What little we saved is going to pay college tuition for 2 kids. I'll be lucky to retire at the official age of 67. After 67, my dream jobs are to become a Walmart greeter and a course ambassador.

My day job is in Commercial Real Estate finance as an Analyst.  I also coach soccer, play poker, and play golf anywhere but the fairway.  Anyone can play from the short grass, but it takes a true talent to play from the tall grass...or the sand...or the trees.

    • Day 164 (22 May 22) - worked on getting weight on lead foot - used the reverse stork drill and 3w.  Key was to stay as balanced as possible, did okay.  Followed with some lefty swings with the Dunlop lefty 7i, focused on the pressure of my weight on my lead “right” foot.  Then turned it back around and completed the drill session with full swings with my SLDR 7i and the hard foam balls. 
    • Correct. The R10 is much closer to the Mevo, not the Mevo+. Yeah. 😄
    • At $300 and requiring only 3’ for a radar unit, I don’t think it’s going to be very accurate. So no, it’s not going be dominating the Mevo market anytime soon. There are those of us who didn’t get the Garmin R10 at a fraction of the price of a Mevo+ (and Pro package) because of questionable accuracy. Hell, the gifs on their site show people “playing” the simulator without even hitting a ball. It’s basically a video game at that point.
    • Yet another question about the technology for filming a swing. I read Erik's updated "Filming your Swing" blog post as part of researching my next phone purchase. My current phone, which is on its last legs, was able to record video up to 1080p at up to 120 fps (Pixel 3XL).  However, that camera isn't great at the moment (various reasons unrelated to its specifications) and I'm going to get a new device soon, too.  Its likely successor for me is only able to do 30fps at 1080p, so that won't work for filming a golf swing.  It can do 720p @ 480 fps though (device I'm likely to get is a Galaxy A42).  Will that work for this?  I realize the post says "at least 720p video," but I don't know if I should shoot for better than that (such as if it is expected to be outdated soon).  It also seems odd to me that a camera could do only 30fps at 1080p but 480 fps at 720p, but I know almost nothing about these things. I am also debating getting a separate camera for golf swings if this won't work;  my prior separate-camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110.  I believe it tops out at 720p / 30 fps;  if there's a reasonably priced camera that works for my golf swing filming, I'd be happy to get that and not sweat the camera on the phone. Other than filming my golf swing, my phone is pretty much a communication device and podcast player, so I'm not going higher end except if doing so is the most effective way to get a good camera for my golf swing. (Apologies if this should have been a separate thread, but I figured it was on-topic here and I didn't think there was another forum than Member Swings where this would be an appropriate top-level post)
    • Day 127: Played 18 this morning. Tried to simplify the mechanics of my priority piece (which is two things) into a feel but didn’t work great, so just settled on on of them after a few holes. Played okay except for a dumb triple bogey on #12.
