Forty Year Old Millionaires Explain Their One Million Dollars : Final Net Worth Update December 2017 (+0.34%)

PEACE OF MIND WITH MONEY SHOULD BE A FIRST STEP TO FINDING YOUR RICH   It’s just one million dollars that bridges the gap, not that big of a deal really. Or is it? As your wealth grows the less attractive previous money goals become only because society has groomed us to believe that more wealth is power. For the average person It just buys more shite, that’s all. Last night I watched Drug Lords on Netflix and not only did it open my eyes to the billions of dollars in the drug cartel but just how fast wealth can create a power so terribly wrong that everyone suffers. Greed is a nasty evil that will always come back to bite you in the arse. You don’t have to be a drug dealer to become that powerful person who makes people around you suffer because they are less fortunate or because you believe you’re entitled to be that way. We have more than enough high-society snobbery to  handle that part of the problem but we interests me the most is how many people we’ve met that aren’t that way. How much money you need to live your rich life is […]

Happiness Has Become My New Rich : Net Worth Update June-Aug 2017 (+0.43%)

BE THAT ONE PERSON WHO PUTS HAPPINESS FIRST AND YOU WILL FIND THE GOLD YOU TRULY SEEK.   The richest man or woman is the one who believes that happiness comes before money. In a sea of unhappiness because of job loss, minimum wage, health and all things related to money be that ONE person who puts happiness first. I knew the time would come where I’d have to write a post like this and tell everyone, we spent a large amount of money. Don’t worry I’m not crying over financial loss rather I’m jumping for joy because I understand more than ever what happiness is. I talk to many people daily while networking on social media many of which are not rich in numbers but seem to be content. They don’t have everything they’d like to have but they get by and still manage to have a laugh and create fun instead of buying it. You don’t have to sail around the world to be happy, only YOU can do that. Money doesn’t buy happiness, bla, bla, bla. I know you’ve heard that and it is the single most smartest thing I can agree on in personal finance. My […]

Achieving goals ahead of schedule: June 2014 Net Worth Update (+1.31%)

JUNE NET WORTH AT A GLANCE   It’s been a busy year so far and we are finally ahead of where we want to be in terms of achieving goals with our finances. After the ups and downs of previous months dealing with unexpected costs and circumstances we weren’t sure where we would be financially. Since running the numbers we now feel confident we can stay on track. As of December 2013 I started to log how we were doing in relation to meeting our goal of hitting the million dollar net worth mark and it stood at 6 years meaning that December 2019 would be our million dollar target date. The monthly changes moved the time frame around a little depending on how we did financially that month but nothing really jumped us ahead or behind.   Achieving goals   I have noticed in the last four months that a trend appeared where we have increased our average net worth yearly average causing our forecast of hitting the million dollar mark to happen 6 months earlier than predicted. That means we are achieving our goals faster than we expected which is great news. I would contribute this increase to […]
