1. I haven't done an assesment of this yet. I think that could be something this board could help me with. Just by estimating, I'd say about 2 million.

2. Indexing. But I also plan to start my own business. While this may not be the best way to become FI, I'd rather make less money working for myself than more working for someone else. That's just the way I've been raised.

3. A long time, and close to 0%. I havent graduated college yet though, so I've got time on my side. I'll be starting a Vanguard account hopefully by next month. That will put me officially on the road to FIRE.

As you can tell, I've got alot of questions that need answering, but can also provide a unique point of view on other issues. I look forward to participating in this board!
