A Path to Retirement--for those far from it
« on: May 06, 2014, 06:33:13 AM »
William Bernstein is sharing the basics of retirement planning in a free pamphlet. "If You Can," the pamphlet/ebook can be purchased digitally for .99 but can also be had for free.

One of the suggestions is to watch out for fees and to hold index funds (stocks, bonds, and international) in equal parts.

Seems like sound advice to me. The pamphlet is geared to younger people just starting out...

Locking thread to keep discussion in one place.
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and are now settled with two kids.
If you want to know more about us, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
