------------ Vision - Multi-Millionaire

I'm glad that works for you, but it's not for me. I've opted for the buy, hold, and wait a few decades, all while adding to the pot by living below my means. TMF Stock Advisor (and Hidden Gems before that) choices made me a multimillionaire, so it seems to have been a fair strategy. Now I have mostly VFINX (and the NFLX I can't bring myself to sell) and it chugs along just fine for me.

The best investment plan for someone is the plan that they understand, believe in, and can remain consistently invested in the market with. Let time and the magic of compounding do all the heavy lifting.

But maybe that's just me.
