Finally reached $1M net worth. Since I am not an OT'er, it was a long time coming and took a lot of sacrifices and saving early on. It sounds odd but with multiple kids and the costs to retire it does not seem like that much money....

How much does it cost to use a mortgage broker? I would pay a couple hundred dollars for that, but if it was an extra percent interest or a thousand dollars then I would feel obligated to do it myself....

[quote]Reaching $1M is a satisfying milestone also. [/quote]Net worth is one thing, but that would be a lot of money in a 401k. I wonder how early somebody could reasonably become a 401k millionaire....

I will be mortgage shopping soon and am looking for some tips. There was nothing that I saw in the FAQ thread, but feel free to link something if I missed it.

My phone upgrade date is coming up soon with Verizon. Currently I am using a Motorola Droid 4 phone, since I really like having a physical keyboard.

- Father and grandfather taught me about compound interest at an early age (along with lots of other math)
- Started buying XOM stock in fourth grade with a DRIP. Parents matched 100%, so I would throw in $10 or $20 here or there, often more. It was worth over $50,000 by the time I finished colle...

| O-T Lounge|| re: Spinoff: engineers vs. PE's - Bayou Tiger on 1/14/15 at 5:01 pm|
As a registered PE, I don't really care who calls themselves an engineer. Anyone who is going to pay my salary or consulting fees know the difference.
On that note, the PE designation is not an indicator of excellence - just competence and the motivation to jump through hoops and get licensed....
