I am new to the idea of investing and managing my own $$ and am not sure how to start. I am 27 and have accumulated about $200K in mutual funds that since I was about 12 (Between summer jobs and putting each nickel into the market from grandma and such). I have no debt car payments etc. I read about the Fool 4 and all of the Foolish books (execpt new one) I read O'higgins book. Two of my concerns are:
1) I've missed the boat on investing. I should have started in the early 90's and now would have done even better than my funds.
2) I'm a Mutual fund addict. Since I started so early in mutual funds, letting them go seems like it will be painful. Also selling them all to invest could have a serious tax consequence.
Any advise on where to start and how to sell the funds to minimize taxes?
