10:25 PM [GrannieAnnie] [gtabdinar] You know…soonerpatriot and I get IM’s sent to us all the time. I do not get them sent to me because I am special (sooner does….haha!!). I get them because my fellow Mateys want answers. Answers to questions about where we are in this investment. Answers to questions that arise along the way.
10:26 PM [GrannieAnnie] [gtabdinar] Answers to something I may have recently posted on the board. But the number one reason I receive an IM…….is that someone wants answers about the FUTURE. Answers as to what they should do now to make the FUTURE better and answers to what to do when this is all over….in that order.

10:26 PM [GrannieAnnie] [gtabdinar] I marvel at the scope of questions….and some I shall share along the rest of this voyage….no matter the time we have left (which BTW I think is very short). I get questions about wealth, health, family, love, relationships, investment advice and ideas.
10:26 PM [GrannieAnnie] [gtabdinar] My main point here being….I am not a counselor. I am not an adviser. I am definitely not a guru. And I also cannot predict the FUTURE. I can however…prepare for it. So can all of us. That is what we all strive to do isn’t it? That is exactly why we boarded this ship in the first place…
10:27 PM [GrannieAnnie] [gtabdinar] …preparation…for the RV and the FUTURE…post RV.
10:27 PM [GrannieAnnie] [gtabdinar] Soonerpatriot has given us tons of information to be able to make decisions to “pay it forward.” Deb Tar Heel Girl and Bella Grits are constantly giving us uplifting posts to keep us positively charged.

10:28 PM [GrannieAnnie] [gtabdinar] There are plenty of places to get others to tell us….its all good! So why do I get asked the questions I do? What makes me so special in this regard? Like I said…I am not special…but I am “visible.” Therein lies the answer.

12:02 AM [gtabdinar1] This is all of course, in my opinion. The 75-80% should and better provide enough income to cover all your expenses in the future. If it does not, you need to keep on working at your “regular” job until it does. Do the math.
12:02 AM [gtabdinar1] Income (from your job or business and investments) minus expenses equals profit (or loss). How long can you have a loss ‘til the kitty runs out? Not very long. Think like a businessperson. Like soonerpatriot says….act like you’ve been there before.
12:03 AM [gtabdinar1] Don’t overspend just because you think you can and because you have a big fat balance at the bank. Make choices. Do not rely on luck or chance. Make goals and constantly thrive to achieve them.
12:03 AM [gtabdinar1] Paying it forward doesn’t mean giving it all away either. Wise investments can secure paying it forward. Paying it forward is not a one-time thing. It is ongoing…far into the future. You cannot pay it forward if you shoot it all at once. Think about that. I will get to more later.
12:03 AM [gtabdinar1] Thanks for allowing me to post!!! Alll done........It's been fun....I gotta run!!
