If you ever leave your current job, you should roll over your 401K to Vanguard and use one fund: VTSMX.

I respectfully disagree. There is no "one size fits all" investing option. You do not know the original poster's age, or goals, or risk tolerance, or desire for "involvement" in their portfolio. To me, that means you do not know enough to make a valid recommendation. If you are invested solely in VTSMX then sure, say so and tell us why. But beware dispensing "investment panaceas". If the original poster was a 60-year-old, with a weak stomach, investing for retirement, then your advice would be horrible IMHO. :-)

Thanks!
