Personal Situation

/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.

Beautiful Switzerland

A friend of mine is currently visiting Switzerland on vacation. She has been posting pictures on Instagram nonstop. First it made me jealous and now it has enticed me to want to plan a trip there for myself. Scenery I think the number one factor as to why someone would want to visit is because of the scenery. From the Swiss Alps to the castles right from a story book, who wouldn’t want to experience this country? Some of the major sightseeing destinations are the Matterhorn, Jungfraujoch, Lake Geneva, Bern, Zurich, The Rhine Falls and Swiss National Park. I will admit that [...]

2017 Goals and Objectives

I can't believe I have the opportunity to write another one of these posts on this blog.  I have been writing these posts and their subsequent reviews for years.  Looking back at these posts is one of my favorite things about this blog; it allows me .  It allows me to look back a year later, review what I was thinking, and actually be honest with myself whether I met those goals and objectives.  This is not a resolution post.  A resolution post usually contain an end result rather than an actionable step to get there.  I find, for me, it is better [...]

Writing a goals and objective post, nevertheless reading it and judging yourself one year later is a fantastic exercise. In January of 2016 I wrote (to myself), Looking back in 2015, I feel like it reads a little too complacent.  I was/am very happy with life right now, and that is a problem/opportunity. Good is the enemy of [...]

December 2016 Net Worth Update

While not everyone may not sure it on their personal finance blog, I think every adult should keep track of their net worth, and so every month I come on here and share whether my net worth increased/decreased and by how much.  I am not comfortable sharing whole numbers, and I completely get this makes my posts not that transparent but such as life. Calculating my Net Worth Creating a net worth statement is pretty simple.  All one has to do is honestly add up your assets and minus your liabilities.  If you build your net worth calculation on lies, what’s the [...]
