Looking to sever ties with my financial advisor and take matters into my own hand. I’m 27 with 250k cash (flipped a house), 50k in 401k, 30k in brokerage. Medium risk appetite / hoping for FIRE. Recs?

Recs regarding? If you intend to manage it yourself, you can look into a discount brokerage such as TD, Schwab, etc. they provide minimal services at a low cost, while allowing you to access a large number of low cost index funds.

Seems to be working fine for me.

I’m going for FIRE too. I’m worried I’ve been putting too much into 401k which won’t give me flexibility... have about $250K net worth, about $150K of which is in 401k. Thoughts?

I stopped contributing to my 401k bc I’d rather be more liquid and dunno if I’ll be around come 65, or 67 whatever it is now haha
