No shame if you haven't as no one has poked you to do so. Now you have know it and yet you don't bother to verify. Shame on you!
When Uncle8888 started out his retail investing journey, he too seek out "Gurus" for advice and guidance. Days and nights visit "Gurus" forums, blogs and chat boxes. Hanging out there days and nights with the rest of seekers waiting for "Gurus" "wise" words and their "wisdom" to appear. Uncle8888 tended to trust those "Gurus" who have claimed that they were on "mission" as guided from the above. Year after year; some "Gurus" faked away or passed away; but new "Gurus" and Seekers are born!
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
