Uncle8888 is in the camp of earn more; BUT ..... Sometime, we are NOT in control of our body even our mind is very focus and determined to succeed by enhancing our human asset to earn more. BUT; the sad truth is bad thing happened. It may happen earlier than expected to throw out our dream of becoming who we wanted to be. That is Life!
A timeline picture tells his lifetime story of his human asset. Fortunately; after reading this book Rich Dad. Poor Dad in Dec 1999; he has a mind flip and that helped him to begin his search to achieve financial competency to accelerate his journey to the Land of Financial Independence. Finally; he has reached his level of financial competency to implement his Three Taps solution model to build sustainable retirement income for life and exercise that option to retire earlier @ 60. With 17 years of getting his hands dirty in the real financial and investment domain with real practice and applied knowledge on the ground; he has achieved that level of financial competency to share with others - Wa Ka Li Kong! Hee Hee! Who is laughing?
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.
