//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.

July 2017 Net Worth Update

My favorite post of the month is here. I add up all my assets minus my liabilities and see how my net worth has changed as compared to the month before.  I wish I were a little bit more open about sharing how I have been doing, but I just can't get behind putting the real numbers out here.  Instead, I provide a watered down version that shows if I am up or down and by how much.  Luckily, I have only had a few down months which is a combination of luck in the market, paying down debt, and keeping expenses [...]

July 2017 Net Worth Update

For the past few years, I have calculated my net worth at the beginning of each month and then share how much it moved.  I realize it is a purely selfish exercise being that, even if you were a personal finance voyeur I don't share actual numbers so the peeking in would be less than satisfying.  Prior to actually calculating the numbers, I try to give a guess of how I did for the previous month.  I am pretty sure that my net worth increased a good amount this month to no fault of my own.  There are 2 reasons I believe [...]

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 [...]
