"As for investment advice, I'll repeat: spend less than you earn, and have a contingency plan if your earnings get interrupted. Park money in retirement accounts, especially those offered by employers up to company match, at least. Put as much of that into low expense equity index funds as your personal tolerance for volatility can stomach. Let it sit for a couplefew decades as you keep adding to it. Again, always spend and budget as if your income was 10-30%+ lower than it actually is (yeah, it's gonna stink at first, but once you get ingrained in that mentality, the habit becomes a lot easier, especially as your income grows)."

Yes, yes and double yes to that.
