Onward! Photo credit: Maggie’s World This is the last of our transition posts! IMHO – where H = humble as well as honest 🙂 – it starts to get VERY exciting / challenging – interspersed with long periods of boredom 😛 – from here … …. so, let’s make this a last-but-best post: Mark knows […]

Flying on Auto Pilot

Flying on Auto Pilot… It’s interesting, as Jeff points out, the different views that each of the 7MITs have towards so-called ‘tax-advantaged retirement accounts’ … for example, Jeff views them as ‘investing’ and almost sees his investments in real-estate as ‘distractions’ from his investing strategy … I’m not here to pass judgement on any of […]


201K Photo credit: krodinjw Mark’s experience (50% losses in his 401k; 75% losses in his Roth IRA) prove that it’s not the 401k or the Roth IRA that is the problem, it’s what you put IN them that counts … in Mark’s case, he’s prepared to wait 20 to 30 years to cash them out […]

Between you and me and the fence post…

Josh's Life Purpose

Josh’s Life Purpose My life’s purpose was formulated mostly by imagining sitting with my grandchildren and trying to impart some kind of wisdom that would help make their lives as fulfilling as I hope my life will be. So I deducted that my life must be fulfilling if I was going to somehow guide my grandchildren toward the same existence (and […]
