A "thousandaire" is my made up term to describe those of us who aspire to be millionaires but have failed to this point.
Look, I'm a millionaire in the making here, until I'm not. There is still hope. The real question is what happened to slow down the accumulation phase of my life?
I've reflected on this for three or four minutes . . .
There are times when I feel like I'm not doing too badly in terms of having enough money to quit the job and do something else. Then there are other times when I'm seriously wondering about what I've been doing for the past 45+ years of my working life. I seem to have so little to show for it.
