The recent thread below has some "poo-poo" comments cited. Why? Is this not a learning forum? Is this forum mostly read/posters
by those over 50 years of age and no longer have a need or desire to learn much? I don't know the personal answer. I wish that an incognito survey could be performed here to identify age brackets of members over a month period. If there are not basic learning links and personal experiences placed here, especially for the younger members; then the future will be bleak for this forum. From observations over the years at FundAlarm and here, there will be "x" number of we folks who will no longer post anything here within the next 5-10 years, including myself. This, of course; is a result of the A.G.E. syndrome. A few of us are gonna be outta here folks. http://www.mutualfundobserver.com/discuss/discussion/35561/christine-benz-will-coach-you-to-improve-your-financial-life-in-21-days
I have noted the below linked book several times, over the years. Are you the millionaire next door? Have or do you share your knowledge and experiences, being a mentor to the younger ones? The numerical data in the book is out of date, due to inflation; but the methods of attaining financial well being and independence are not.
A few personal and proud periods over a long time frame related to personal finance and investing being a mentor:
1. Two married couples who were never exposed to proper monetary habits.
2. An investment club.
3. The high school crowd. Mostly seniors, all ladies (the guys already know everything, eh?)
How about helping with a survey/study was the question, and I'll pay you $20 for your time and help.I'm going to "ADD" more later.......appointments call.
