Next month, Sep 2016 will be the last month that Uncle will be monetizing his time, energy and effort as full-time employee earning salary.
He will move from owning part-time business to full-time.
It is business of minding his own business with no suppliers, no customers, no staff, no peers and NO bosses setting KPIs for him.
Now, he sets his own KPIs based on 3Ms - Method, Mind and Money Management. It is something that he has done before over the last 16 years; more or less he has made it autonomous. It doesn't matter whether he meets his KPIs or not as there is no penalty or performance appraisal by bosses.
He is his own boss!
Earn more. Spend a little more!
Earn less. Spend lesser!
In investing, once our Mind is seasoned and salty and we are ready at all time mentally and financially to write it off.
It is less stressful as knowing that we just need a few good ones to overcome many sour ones.
Once we know ourselves we can choose to ignore whatever investing theories or concepts that are advocated by others. When we know we are not Nail; why are we looking for Hammers for inspiration and guidance.
So it is important that we know ourselves and our track records will rightfully point to the way forward how we should be minding our own business.
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.
