You still didn't give us those 5 and 10 year averages. 30% up today and 40% down tomorrow seems a common trend while predicting a down turn eludes most of us.
This original post had to be a joke, just read the poster's screen name and signature. Had to be a prank. I posted with humor in mind.
I do have a financial advisor one of several over the years, none of which seem any better at predicting stocks than the other.
I don't "have" to move to Belize, I want to move to Belize. And depending on when I'm able to make that move I'll need to earn a little more than "a little extra spending money". But I have no pie in the sky ideas that I will "become a mllionaire in Belize". I haven't accomplished that here! I do have a goal of earning enough to pay routine bills but little more. I think this is a reasonable and obtainable goal. I may never be able to obtain a Belize medical license but I'm sure going to try.
I'm also a pilot, maybe Tropic or Maya will hire me for island hopper flights. Point is, I'll find something / someway to work it out because moving there before we get "too old" is our goal and has been for some time now.
One last bit of info for you to understand that our desire to live there has little to do with money. We recently adopted a creole baby girl. We live in the south where there is still a fair amount of racism both from whites and from blacks. Since she is both, then she is really neither. Therefore, we are concerned that she may not be accepted by either race.
From what we have seen on the island, children of all shades of color seem to mesh well with each other. We want her to be able to attend school there surrounded by other children of various races and color.
