So, here is the deal. I want to find a way to retire by 50, send the kids to Harvard, own a bar in the tropics, and have less than 3 heart attacks along the way.

I am 28, married, with an 8 month old daughter. I live in Maine, just moving up from Boston, Mass this year. So I have to find a way to buy that bar with a college friend of mine within the next 22 years. Coming from a zero net worth posture (I just got out of school) to what I would expect should cost several million (the bar, retirement, two houses, kid's education, etc...) in 22 years is daunting to say the least.

Anyway, thats an intro. Any info will be appreciated.

Bouna Fortuna,
