Travel, investing, and philanthropy are the elements that make up my definition of retirement.

Fantasy - now. Reality - 50.

I wouldn't. I'd get bored. Dad was forcibly retired for health reasons at 69 and he's bored to tears. I'll always do some type of work. I'm working now to "retire" from consulting to get back to volunteering with nonprofits

I want to FIRE. IRA and 401k are beyond my definition of the ‘RE’ idea since they can only be withdrawn without penalty at 55. Is the only other way to save for retiring at 40-55 an individual brokerage account and just accept the tax upon withdrawal?

Is it a bad look as a senior associate (on the path to manager within a year) to be driving an expensive car like a C7 or C8 corvette that is $70k+? I don’t think it is and here’s my rationale. I’m making over 6 figures, maxing out my 401k and IRA accounts with extra $ going to a brokerage account, I have a 3BR 1300 sq foot home with finished basement and garage for $170k. My two loans are only $240k combined. Heck most people spend more on a house alone. Work remote so vette isn’t daily driver.

Received an invite for a superday very quickly after applying to Goldman. Recruiter never sent me the zoom password and then the password failed to work so everything started a full 15 minutes late. Interviews went great including a “they’ll definitely be a second round” but then I received the rejection email the next day. Do we think the tech issues played into that significantly or just my interview not stacking up to other candidates?
