As from April 2013 my Journey in Investing is to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

Currently; it about 54% to destination!

The Hard Truth

Not all of us can succeed in climbing the corporate ladder.

By late 30s and early 40s; we should already know it.

We should then switch to climbing investment ladder by all means.

Where is the climb up the corporate ladder?

Really boring at 4.8% CAGR over 18 years!

Climbing Invest Ladder
It is less boring with CAGR of 9.7% over 14 years.
It does help him in wealth building for an average worker like Uncle8888.


  1. Why not measure CAGR of your earned income after tax today?

    Is the number a surprise to you?

  2. It shows uncle is more suited for investment than corporate ladder type of lifestyle ;)

  3. Account size matters in climbing investment ladder and that has to come from climbing corporate ladder first. :-)

  4. Well you need money to make money!
    Of course you need to have good income before you have the investment capital to create wealth.
