How To Retire Early And Live Well With Less Than A Million Dollars
In 1981, at the age of 29 the author of HOW TO RETIRE EARLY AND LIVE WELL WITH LESS THAN A MILLION DOLLARS (February 15, 2000; $12.95 trade paperback; 256 pages) began living off his investments of just several hundred thousand dollars. In the intervening years, Gillette Edmunds has made more than $5 million in investment profits. Edmunds was not an investment advisor or a commissioned mutual funds sales representative: he was a financial journalist and an individual investor.
HOW TO RETIRE EARLY AND LIVE WELL WITH LESS THAN A MILLION DOLLARS describes step by step how a retiree can live comfortably on $500,000 or less. Americans will discover that they can walk away from work in less than five years.
This is the first book to tackle these topics that is written by an actual retiree. Using simple, original investment strategies and formulas, the book shows how to assemble your nest egg and achieve steady, tax-advantaged returns every year for the rest of your life.
In Part One, the reader is shown step by step how to determine if they have enough money to retire, and if not, how to get enough. For those that have enough, Part Two shows how to divide their money into different asset classes like stocks, bonds, real estate, foreign stocks, and small business interests so they will achieve steady high returns every year. Then for each asset class, they are shown how to get the highest returns with the lowest taxes. Part Three shows those still saving for retirement how to quickly amass their nest egg. Finally, for the rare years when all asset classes go down, The Epilogue shows the reader how to prosper emotionally while waiting for the markets to come back.
Top Ten Films of 2008
I won't claim to be as big of a film aficionado as my friends Zachary, Sei Jin, or Robert but I do love a good film when there's not a great band playing on that night. While it's true that I'd probably see more films if I wasn't as avidly into music and photography, I still think I picked some good ones. Note: I still have not seen Burn After Reading, Revolution Road, or Doubt which is why these films may not have been included in this list. In addition, I haven't nor do I plan on seeing The Wrestler...I'm conflicted because I love Darren Aronofsky as a director but I hate wrestling. 1. Synechdoche: The best film of this year was Synecdoche. I saw it in the theater twice. It's the kind of film you can see multiple times and still gain more and different insights about. It's the kind of film that brings you back to the years when films were pure and where you actually felt a huge range of emotions about the characters and what happens to them...and it's the kind of film that you can relate to in a way that feels so personal. In typical Charlie Kaufman fashion, this is like bringing a work of experimental fiction to the screen. It is disjointed, with mixed up non linear time frames and the main character's perspective, who it seems the film takes almost complete direction from, is just as confused. This is not a film you see to entertain you. This is the kind of film you see because it reminds you how to be a human being, Beyond that, there's something incredibly personal in this for me. I didn't grow up in Schenectady (or Synecdoche), NY but there's the same feeling that pervades this town that one could sense in Rochester, where I did grow up. Philip Seymour Hoffman, who is probably just below Daniel Day-Lewis in terms of acting ability, is actually from a suburb of my home town. His mother is a judge there and he's come back several times to the local independent theater to thank his supporters. What he brings to this role is immeasurable. It's really something. There's a scene where he reads the obituaries in the paper in the morning and I swear my mother in law did the exact same thing in the exact same way in Rochester the day after Christmas. It's almost uncanny the way upstate NY is represented. In addition, there are all kinds of connections between creating art on a massive and minute scale and NYC vs. a rural domain. It's about creating something real from the human story. Most of all, there is love but it's not about love. There is loss but it's not about loss. There is theater but it's not about theater. More than anything, pure and simple, this is a film about life. 2. My Winnipeg If, like he states, every film is autobiographical, then Guy Maddin grew up in a lighthouse that was half bordello, half hairdressing shop and orphanage where his parents harvested cerebrospinal fluid from children every night to stay younger. And I'm not even going to get into the glass legs full of beer that an ex lover wears. Needless to say, considering the range of bizarre and creative scenarios that I've seen in Maddin's films, it's hard for me to think that they are truly autobiographical. In My Winnipeg, there's a feeling of relatively less of the fantastical even though these elements are present, just a bit more subdued. So, if unlike me you haven't seen Guy Maddin's other films, you might actually believe that this time he's really showing you an honest portrayal of what it was like for him to grow up in Winnipeg. I think there's something magical about the way Guy Maddin has perfected the art of using what seems like low fi black and white filming to create something truly magical. My Winnipeg continues this tradition but what was unique to this film was how he chronicles the changing of the city and you can tell it's an utterly personal and painful thing for him to watch it all happen. Last, Maddin is utterly Canadian, especially here, and I love that. 3. Young at Heart I don't know why but I tend to not really like documentaries. I'd much rather sit through a work of Michel Gondry work of super creative fiction that go see a documentary. Like I said, I really don't know why because I am really fascinated in general by the unique human experience but when I pay for a film and invest the time and energy to watch, I think a big part of me wants to escape. That said, Young at Heart is easily one of the best and most unique documentaries out there. It's about the Young at Heart chorus, which you have to be 70 years of age or over to be eligible to join. These are seniors in their last throes of life that suddenly have a huge meaning to get them through their days, something that undoubtebly makes the sorrow of losing so many loved ones just a little more bearable. The Young at Heart chorus has performed all over the world and the bright personalities of these singers is nothing short of inspiring. On a personal level, what really made this film a joy f
Day 29: My Excessive Love for Body Products
PHOTO: Sephora Deluxe Sample Givenchy Play for Men If you know anything at all about me, I am a bath and body freak. That is, I love body products. This include anything that you can apply to your body, spritz, spray, waft, or cake right on in a variety of colors. One mascara is not enough. No, no, no. 10 is about right. I have invested so much money in Sephora and beauty/body products that it is just sick. I'll spend $80 on shampoo and conditioner, but would never purchase myself an $80 article of clothing. I'm not sure why. I like the luxury of feeling and smelling good, maybe. Or maybe they just have really good marketing. Anyway. Kenn asked me yesterday, "do you get a rush from getting things for a good deal?" And me, well, I thought about for a minute. Yes, yes I would say that I do. I have way more than I need, so really nothing is necessarily necessary. And I'm not sure why I never feel just content with what I've got. There always seems to be something that I want or feel that I just have to have. I fight that urge a lot by just not going to the mall or stores that I enjoy entirely way too much. I have more clothes than I can fit into my closets and dresser. Last month, I donated 3 huge garbage bags of clothes and 2 big boxes full of even more clothes, and I still have more to give! Part of the problem is that my weight is always fluctuating. In the summer, I am smaller, and in the winter, I put on some winter weight. It is all that good hearty food that is just YUM. And mashed potatoes -- my weakness. C'mon, everybody has a food weakness!! Whats yours?? But I digress, again. So, I have been trying to be good lately. That is, not buy anything that I don't need. That means not going to the grocery store and just eating up all the food that I already have. I have full cabinets right now, but it seems to me there is nothing that sounds good. I doing this will spark some creativity in the food department. Back to Givenchy Play. We went to the Sephora store when Kenn was here and talked to the scary old lady at the store who I think kept hitting on Kenn, and she convinced us to try a few different colognes. Givenchy Play Intense was one of them and I really liked it! Low and behold, when I placed my order with Sephora, I had gotten enough points to get a deluxe bonus sample which was this little bottle. The thing that I keep thinking about is that I have way more than I need. I have beau-coups of make-up and body washes and perfumes and etc. I want to throw a lot of it away. I want to make the plunge. I want to live more simply. But, why am I holding back? Why is it so difficult? It is that fear of... well, what if I need it?? When, I am sure that I won't. I mean, I use the same things over and over again... It is funny -- the difference between my mom and I. She chucks stuff out like nobodys business. If it is in her way, TRASH. If she doesn't want to see it anymore, TRASH. She is VERY minimal. I remember being a kid and looking for something and asking "Mom? Where is the...." And she saying, "Oh, I threw it away because I thought you never used it." Maybe this is a weird subconscious revolt against that. Regardless, I think maybe I should go against the grain and just do it. Throw whatever I don't use out. *cringes*
