Hey Plutus Family! Have you ever thought about retiring early, but life brought you back to reality. Check out this great article, “Failing at Early Retirement”.
Here’s what we wanted to share with you this week.
It’s Time to Work. [Of Dollars and Data] — “Most people don’t get rich through their investment decisions; they get rich through their income. They get rich through their work. Even those who do get rich from their investments, typically, had to work to get the money they used to invest in the first place.” (Submitted by J. Money.)
Experts Say This Is a Key Sign You Have an Unhealthy Relationship with Money. [The Zero Report] — “When it comes to money and budgeting, it’s often easier said than done. You may have the best of intentions — you’ll eat out less this month and put the money into your savings account instead. But then life happens. Just like working through any other life, fitness, or wellness issue, a little introspection is often the ticket. If you want to get your finances back in order, a financial psychologist or money mindset coach can help. It all starts with getting your head in the right place.” (Submitted by Tarsha.)
Failing at Early Retirement. [Go Curry Cracker] — “The idea that earning some income is equivalent to failure for an early retiree is common, but I think it is misplaced. There is no right/wrong or moral weight to the decision to add or subtract dollars from a retirement portfolio, so if something doesn’t feel right and you think work would help… then work.” (Submitted by J.
