Your approach is as easy as falling off a log. I don't want to fall off a log.

Hmmmm, I retired over seven and a half years ago at age 38. I spent 13 years saving and investing 20% of my gross monthly income into the US equity markets.

I'm married. I have four children. And I achieved FIRE before age 40 in a third world country whose standard of living is 20% of that of the USA. That said, many of you could FIRE just on the value of my personal residence <grin>.

Your approach is far too tedious and +complicated. Your ROI is far too low for my needs.

Finally, when I'm in the mountains, at the beach, or out of the country enjoying the scenery and a comely young woman, the last thing I want to get is a call on my cell phone about a clogged toilet in some freaking house, apartment, or office I that own.
