Maybe your answers will help someone else too. I am 50 years old and knew for a few years I haven't been foolish enough about preparing for the future. Then I came across the Foolish Two (David and Tom) and knew they were serious and honest about helping others about the market. I devoured their books along with Robert Sheard's. I found the Motley Fool web site and am as confused as ever. So many choices from so many people smarter than I am. No man is an island, certainly not in the markets. I've been embarrassed to ask for help until now. The Dow F4 is smart for long term, but I feel(probably panic) I've lost ten or more years of investing opportunity. Should I plan on living a century and go for the Dow approach entirely? Should I go mainly for growth with small and midcaps in a Breaker portfolio or a combo of both? Any help would be appreciated.
