    Its sad and our system is not build to make people save money by design.
    Having kids, Bills, without a strong discipline and habit of saving is a disaster.

    $10M seems like a good number. But then I think about that movie sequel, Wall Street. When asked how much money was enough, Josh Brolin said, “More.”

    Father,

    Very sad. I took your advice years ago and now am close to becoming a millionaire and debt free before I am 50. Avoid debt, save and buy good blue chip dividend stocks and cut expenses. Cook food at home and make coffee for cheap are the way to go to success. I have friends in debt and they are living hand to mouth one bill away from being on the street.

    Best,
    Scott
