It really an eye opener when you have to watch your brokers, your managers, your relatives (well they shouldn't be in your business).

Lately, we have been sitting down with our broker at least four times and year to keep them on track to what we want. However, it's not their money. So when they blow it, or place your investments in some vehicle that's not giving you the return of the market. you have to call them on the carpet.

We neg everything. From home repairs to hotel rooms. We have to watch our retirement egg because if we don't, who will.
