From Route to Retire …
Growing up I was always good at math. I pretty much ran circles around the other kids in elementary school and had no problems throughout high school as well.
Then college happened. Some of the classes were easy peasy, but then there were subjects like business statistics and macro/micro economics. I think my grades in those tougher classes accurately reflected my understanding at the time – not so good.
Fast forward to today and I’ll tell you something that not a lot of folks know about me. I don’t know the intricacies of my FIRE numbers like a lot of others do.
