Home/Personal Situation

I started my personal finance blog, myjourneytomillions, to share my personal financial situation in an anonymous way.  Sometimes I will highlight things that are going on in my  life that are not financial in nature.  In addition, in this category I share all my net worth updates.

Networking and the Modern World Networking is now an everyday part of life for billions. As I open my smartphone, many of the apps are dedicated to bringing people and technology together; the prevalence of this technology shows the extent to which the networking industry is growing. However, people working in - or aspiring to work within - networking are faced with an extremely competitive job market; employers are on the lookout for those with the most relevant skills and up-to-date, industry-recognised qualifications. In the modern world of computing, more is needed from candidates to demonstrate their ability and understanding of modern [...]

June 2017 Net Worth Update

My Gut Reaction to Net Worth Before Calculating Every month I have a feeling of how I did the previous month.  Some times I am way off and sometimes I am right on point.  I do not think this month is going to be a great month, in fact, I believe it is going to be one of my rare negative months.  I haven't had a negative month since November of 2016.  My lack of negative months have zero to do with my personal finance "prowess", but rather we are in the middle (or end) of a massive bull market and I [...]

10 Year Anniversary at Work

Sometime this month I hit my 10 year anniversary at work! It is amazing to think about where I was when I started the job versus my current life.  It truly feels like a lifetime ago when I started the position.  When I first started in my current role I was in contract to buy a home, wasn't married and had no kids. 10 years later my life looks nothing like the Evan that originally took the position. Why I Took the Position in the First Place I remember it was like yesterday.  Coming out of law school I was having trouble finding [...]

May 2017 Net Worth Update

With another month in the books it is time for me to calculate my net worth and share with anyone reading whether it has increased or decreased.  Since I am not sharing actual numbers, I know this exercise is mainly done for my benefit, however, maybe it'll inspire someone to start their own net worth spreadsheet. My Gut Reaction to Net Worth Before Calculating Every month I have a feeling of how I did the previous month.  Some times I am way off and sometimes I am right on point.  Usually, these are negative feelings, but not this month.  I had a few things [...]

Net Worth Update April 2017

I can't imagine anyone getting any type of benefit in reading whether my net worth went up or down in terms of a percentage of the prior month.  So why do I do it? Purely for selfish reasons.  Giving myself the fake deadline of preparing these posts once a month forces me to open the corresponding net worth spreadsheet and actually looking at my debts (the investment/asset part I check an unhealthy amount anyway). If you want to get deep into some financial voyeurism check out the Rockstar Finance Directory of Net Worth.
