98.6% of this discussion forum is teasing one guy who retired early with not nearly enough in the way of assets. His self-reported net worth at retirement was about 90th percentile among all US residents and it was not close to enough. He is a demonstrable early retirement failure.

I doubt Dana is looking for the likes of Rob Bennett, although it would certainly be interesting to get a detailed view of the finances he's keen to allude to and yet reluctant to detail. Is he a trustafarian? Is he a welfare case? Is he on SS disability? Is he making ends meet as a midnight shift fry cook? It would be great to know something more about him than "Look at me, look at me, look at me!" That is unfortunately this forum's voyeurism.

But I digress. Dana wants an early retirement success for her article. If someone in the 90th percentile of net worth is a failure due to lack of assets, then she needs someone worth more than that. At least a million bucks is in order, probably something more like at least a million investable. Some readers here have that, some might be wishing for it, but very few in either category would be interested in having their names, faces, cities, and finances splashed across a national financial publication. I suppose it wouldn't matter if you had billions and could hire security to keep the golddiggers away but that's not exactly the exemplar that Dana is seeking either.

Say you have a million or two million or even ten million dollars and you retired early. You wouldn't put your name and net worth in Money magazine unless you were insane. Second cousins would crawl out of the woodwork. Your friends would expect you to pick up every restaurant check. Every stockbroker and realtor and Lexus salesman in the country will call you. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of letters and emails would come from Nigeria. Your children and grandchildren would be targets for kidnappers.

No sane person would volunteer for this.

I agree.

So, I wonder when Robert "Hocus" Bennett will be contacting them...?
