If your “other income” has a steady flow, you are not late.
If your “protection” is equal to the worth of your life for near and dear, you are not late.
You can delay all investment decisions you probably should have taken, if all the above are as per your standards.

Talk to me if you don’t find tail wind. I am always here.
