Shardae, that is a well-worded question!

First, before I answer, let me set the stage by saying that I am 55 years old.

My goals:

  1. To retire by age 62, 60, or sooner. I initially established this as a goal when diagnosed with a non-life-threatening, but serious, illness (2013). I reaffirm the goal on a daily basis, because I work for a company where I am not appreciated, and have a boss I cannot stand!

To reach that goal:
a. Periodically consult with a financial advisor to make sure I am on track.
b. do not take any money out of my investments. I am no longer adding to them, as I saved a lot when I was younger.
c. Make extra house payments, so my house is paid off by that time.
d. Maintain my car in good working order, with regular preventive maintenance, so I can keep it as long as possible before having to buy a new one.
e. Stay as healthy as possible.

  1. To get my Masters in Legal Studies, with a certificate in Paralegal Studies, with graduation to coincide with time of retirement. I made this goal in 2016. I am single, and dabble in legal activities as a hobby. Having this to look forward to as a 3rd career looks exciting.
    a. Take one class per semester.
