I’m looking for some elementary teachers who want to exchange letters written by students. Letters need to be read by the teacher before being sent to make sure they are school appropriate. Letters are mailed to school addresses not to student homes. It would be fun to get a network of participating classrooms from all over the world.

Posted this previously in another bowl but thought it'd make more sense here. Was watching world's most extraordinary homes in awe and for the first time in life I felt like I really wanted to be rich enough to own one of these. Did some quick math assuming $150k annually in index funds earning 10% annual returns, but figured even 25years is barely enough. With this as a life goal, what strategic tips are there that a 30 year old consultant could do to get there? Surely salary is not enough!
