Amount Percentage length totals MTHLY @ 5%

**$1,135,488**5% 10 years $1,849,590.3 $7,233.45 / Month

$1,135,488 8% 10 $2,451,433.43 $9,587.16 / Month

$1,135,488 10% 10 $2,945,163.44 $11,518.06 / Month

**$1,135,488**was the amount I'd have by May 1st 2023 in ESP doing the full 20%, Assuming no gain/loss in stock price (or average 0 gain/loss through dollar cost averaging). taking it out every quarter and investing it with an average return of 8% a year. In 12 years I should have $1,135,488. I’ll be 47, and I can stop doing ESP at this point - unlikely.

Then I take that amount and invest it for another 10 years and I figured 3 different strategies showing 3 different outcomes.

The MTHLY amounts are derived from taking each calculated amount and investing it at something guaranteed at 5% (might be high) and that is my monthly pre tax retirement "paycheck". I could retire at 57.

These figures exclude stock options/RSU and profit share. Based on 77.5 hours a month, no overtime, or training outside the blocking window.

After doing hours of compound calculations, I have a new found respect for what it can do.

For anyone interested in doing their own calculations here's a great online tool.
