I'm fairly proud of my financial prowess, and my earning power.
I used to think I'd be able to retire pretty easy, but recent events have hurt my prospects.
I had a 401k going earlier, but I ran into unemployment for a while, and wound up living on those savings. The next job I found didn't offer benefits of any kind, and neither did the one after that. I can't help but wonder if this is a spreading trend, or if THIS motley fool is missing the jackpot.
Then I found this link, on another forum I frequent, and to be honest with you, it just gives me the willies!!
