I haven't read this board much and probably am not on the road to being FIRE yet. I found this thread when I read the original post which is the post of the day today. Anyway, I found all your stories of wealth accumulation interesting and am astonished that you all seem to have accumulated so much wealth at such young ages. (FYI, I am 32.)

What I am wondering is how many of you have kids. I feel like I am at a disadvantage in accumulating wealth because I had kids at a (fairly) young age. (I won't go into how little about money management/saving I learned from my parents.)

I own the book The Millionaire Next Door but have not read it yet. Perhaps I should make the time to do so.
