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.

    • That's awesome.    Oh my goodness! This so reminds me of my dad. I started playing golf in my 20's and ever since I can remember my dad has carried more than 14 clubs. At one point I was lugging his huge-ass-cart-bag out to the car and I counted 21 clubs, plus a ball retriever. Hell, there might have been a Golden Retriever in their that damned bag was so heavy. 😓 Anyway, there was never any point in telling my pops that 14 clubs is the legal limit. His response was always the same "Ah, that's a bullshit rule." ... Honestly, how do you argue with that? 
    • I often do, perhaps because I'm so accustomed to watching subtitled foreign language films on Netflix. Watching an English language film, I sometimes can't make out dialog otherwise.
    • My golf game is presently in mothballs until April, but I'll be ready to go. By this season's end, I had my first complete bag overhaul since 2009. I'm also down to a conforming fouteen clubs, which is always a plus. I managed that with 6º gaps at th short end--42° 9-iron and 48-54-60 wedge complement.     After a near non-existent 2020 Covid-restrictions diminished season, the whole club is jabbed and everything got back close to normal this season. It rained most of July, but by August, I was playing somethging resembling golf for the first time in a while.  GIR rate got reasonable.  Doubles minimized.   Looking forward to next season already.  
    • My driver used to be my 14th club as I rarely pulled it from the bag. Now, maybe for the first time since my Titleist Howiter a cuiple of decades ago, I've got one that I can hit from four or five tees in a typical round.   Thus, I no longer have a "14th" club.     
    • A guy on the range yesterday asked me about the MEVO Plus I was using. I showed him what it can do. He said he was interested in the Garmin but it was sold out. I told him this has a lot more features and will have the Pro package add on next year.
