/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.

September 2018 Net Worth Update

I can't believe summer is coming to an end! With another month in the books it is time to update my net worth spreadsheet. Thoughts before I calculate my net worth: I usually have a feeling as to how I did with regard to my net worth.  I think this month is going to be an up month.  I don't think it is based on anything The Wife and I have done differently, rather, the market has been on a tear and my net worth is extremely correlated to the market. My Net Worth Calculation My Assets My assets are pretty simple: [...]

Net Worth Update August 2018

With another month in the books I get the pleasure of updating my net worth spreadsheet and then sharing how I have done month over month and year to date. Thoughts before I calculate my net worth: I usually have a feeling as to how I did with regard to my net worth.  I think this month is going to be a down month.  We had a couple of unexpected bills (my dog passing was $800 on credit card that I just was not expecting), and just overall The Wife and I have been spending a lot with my online income decreasing [...]

July 2018 Net Worth Update

Thoughts before I calculate my net worth: I usually have a feeling as to how I did with regard to my net worth.  I think this month is going to be a down month.  It felt like the spending just did not stop, so combine that with a down month over month market and I should have a rare negative month. My Net Worth Calculation My Assets My assets are pretty simple: Emergency Fund – It is a little less than where I would like it, but I don’t calculate it in terms of monthly expenditures.  Rather I think to myself how much cash [...]

Reviewing My Goals and Objectives for 2018

With about half the year gone, I figured it was a good time to check out my goals and objectives for 2018.  See if I am blowing any of them out of the water (unlikely) or if I am severely under-performing where I thought I'd be at this point (likely).  For the past few years I have orgnized my goals and objectives into the following categories, and as such it would only make sense to review them in the same categories: Professional Life Blogging World Online Income World Financial Goals Personal Life Mid-Year Review of my 2018 Goals and Objectives Professional Life [...]

Net Worth June 2018 Post

First of the month, so it is naturally that time to take account and see how I did for the past 30 days or so!  I have said this in the past, but I have no idea how other adults keep track of their finances without a spreadsheet or similar online tool.  Maybe they just don't? I get not having to share it with the world, but if you aren't keeping track of your net worth you are completely doing yourself a disservice.  At the very least it forces you to load up your debt and take account to make sure it [...]
