So I talked to a broker at Scottrade today

and my mother’s broker, so hopefully in the next week or so we’ll get things moved over.

I know DR suggests that your investments be divided equally into 4 types of mutual funds:
growth and income (large cap)
International
Aggressive Growth (small cap)
Growth (mid cap)

Does anyone do % differently here? At the end of the day, it’s not going to be a huge dollar amount which comes my IRA way, so while in theory 9500/4 x 12% is the same money, it sure feels different when it’s just 9500 x 12%.

I am SO torn. I guess it’s because I really want it to grow “fast” since there’s not a lot of time between me and “retirement” and we have paid so much stupid tax in our lives. On the other hand, I am grateful, for real. This is not money I ever expected to have, so I do want to be wise with it.

Thoughts?
