Happy 28th Birthday Evan

Happy 28th Birthday Evan

I can’t believe it has been a year since I wrote my 27th birthday post to myself!  Well, since it happens once a year and I have been blogging for about 18 months on November 10 I turned 28 years old.  After reading the post over, it seemed like I had a few goals for myself:

  • Start a Family – I have a family now, but we want children
  • Start to Look for a New Place
  • Get out of Credit Card Debt
  • Get Admitted to Practice Law in the State of New York
  • Get working on multiple income streams

Lets tackle each goal, one by one.

My Journey to Start a Family

Well as I discussed pretty openly, The Wife and I attempted to have a baby, however, we eventually lost the baby due to a miscarriage.  Well hear me Creator/God/Universe  I want my Child before I turn 29!  That is priority and goal #1

My Journey to Start to Look for a New Place

I am actually pumped that I didn’t accomplish this goal.  The Wife and I are in a great place right now.  Granted it will be a little tight with a child, but its cheaper than anything we’ll ever find again, but more importantly we have amazing neighbors.  I don’t particularly want this goal to come true by next November, but I wouldn’t be against it either. It certainly isn’t a goal.

My Journey to Get out of Credit Card Debt

GONE ALL OF IT! and it happened on this blog’s first birthday.

My Journey to Get Admitted to Practice Law in the Sate of New York

DID IT! I am admitted to practice law in New York.

My Journey to Work on Multiple Income Streams

Well I have been working on this blog a lot lately, I hope everyone notices! I know Google has.  More importantly, I have started drafting Wills and Trusts outside of my job as back office support in a financial planning firm.

So what do we have for next year?

  • Get to baby making and
  • More Streams of Income, preferably more passive forms

  1. Congrats! Sorry to hear about the miscarriage. I'm sure you guys will succeed!

    Can you tell us more about your thoughts on passive income? Does blogging count? B/c, as far as I can tell, it's A LOT of work publishing original good content!

  2. Blogging is in no way a passive form of income! It takes a lot of work to keep the site fresh, as I am sure you are aware of (Huge fan of your site). Practicing law on the side is no way passive income either, but provide alternative form vs. my steady paycheck.

    I see passive as literally doing nothing – which means getting more into dividend paying stocks, prosper.com and muni bond funds.
