I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed 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!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

How boring 'secret' to being rich

invest, thesundaytimes, Jan 5, 2014

What is the secret to getting rich?

1. Born Rich

2. Marry Rich

3. Start your business

4. Climb Corporate Ladder

5. Climb Investment Ladder

Uncle8888 strongly agreed with 4 and 5.

Especially on No 4.

Climbing corporate ladder is the sure way to become rich.

Young people should at first attempt to climb corporate ladder instead of investment ladder.


In climbing investment ladder, your Account Size Really Matters!

Where to find your investing capital?

From your earned income and saving. Right?

Read? No Goal. No Aim. No Dream. You are more likely to end up as an Average in your 60s! (2)

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.

Investment Ladder

By then, we may have reasonable Account Size to climb investment ladder.

Get it?

  1. Uncle, you must be thinking of becoming rich every day to come out these fanciful stuff.

    At your age, you should learn to let go. At your deathbed, only your loved ones will be by your side. You cannot bring money to the grave.

  2. Ha! Ha!
    Actually, when we are living, we are always worry about running out of cash before running out of life. No matter at what age.
    Alas our worries almost always make us over react. Such that we are worth more when we die than we are living.
    In other words, it never easy to balance your living or anything in life.
    You either under or over compensate trying to balance anything.
    For me, looking at and imagine how the Poors live overdrive me into learning how to invest and safekeeping my money.
    i am always haunted by the images of people landing in the "poor house"
    And yes, i hate opic's politics and money politics.

  3. true if u r non entrepreneur in nature!

  4. Is there any blogs on how to climb corporate ladder? I will sure follow haha. :P
