I recently had to liquidate my 401k due to an unforeseen between jobs situation. I still have some of that money left, and would like to find out the best way to achieve my goals:

1. Rebuild this back up to its previous levels, in an accelerated fashion (but with tolerable risk)
2. Make a plan on how to continue a fast growth plan in order to retire properly
3. For the sake of argument, lets say I have $10k that I want to grow to $50k to regain what it was at. Stock market investing seems like the best way to do this. How should I split up my investment portfolio? 10 x $1k? 5 x $2k etc.?
4. Whats my best strategy from the $50k point onwards?

Newly Foolish, trying to be less of a former fool, and a better Fool going forwards :)
