<<I have a couple friends who were offered "a package" to sweeten early retirement, and we make a point of getting together every so often. I have yet to find a downside to ER, other than switching from portfolio accumulation to disbursement. But there's a point when you're 99% sure you "have enough," and next year I may be able to "pull the trigger.">>

After ten years of early retirement with zero earned income, from 2007 to 2017 (which included the recession) I calculated the affect of having no earned income on my net worth.

Over that ten year period of time, my net worth INCREASED by 50%.
