It may take me a couple years to achieve this, but I'm going to only have 4 funds in my investment portfolio: Vanguard Wellington Fund Admiral Shares (VWENX), Vanguard Wellesley Income Fund Admiral Shares (VWIAX), Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Admiral Shares (VTSAX), and Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund Admiral Shares (VBTLX). My taxable accounts for income and growth will have Wellington, Wellesley, and Total Stock. My Roth IRAs for growth will have Total Stock and Total Bond.
"Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice." - Steve Jobs
“Let people judge you. Let them misunderstand you. Let them gossip about you. What they think of you isn’t your problem. Their opinions do not pay your bills.

Just keep shining like you always do” – Scott Stabile
