Finished to this point!!!
I have read, listened, and watched each link along the way. I feel reprogrammed and I am thankful for it.
Not too long ago, I started reading and watching hours upon hours of Mr. Bogle’s interviews. I wish I had learned about Mr. Bogle and this particular website, years earlier. I had once believed my investing goal was to try and select the right funds to beat the market. I have banged my head on the proverbial wall for years trying to find the right combinations that would last. The same type combos that would have then caused me to question this simple method just like those who have posted here with the “what about adding this” type questions…
While reading a while back, I learned to pay more attention to the expense ratios and after doing so, I had an unintentional consequence. I simplified my portfolio some, which was good but, not good enough. Of course, I have learned much, much more now and I will fine tune to this 3 fund portfolio, which I really like.
I still have some questions and I will ask those in the appropriate “help with personal investments” section - I learned a lot from Lady Geek in terms of that
At any rate, I have nothing of real substance to add to this post, but I really felt compelled to at least use my first post to thank the original author, Taylor; and the many people who have made this thread so enjoyable/valuable. This information is priceless.
A sincere thank you
