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.

April 2019 Net Worth Update

With another month in the books it is time for me to calculate my net worth and share how it has changed month over month and year to date.  I am not sure how many people actually track their assets and debts outside of the personal finance world, but I am sure that if more people did the state of America’s finances would be in a better place. Thoughts Before Calculating: I usually have a feeling as to how my family has done over the past month.  I am pretty sure this is going to be a negative month.  March 2019 was an amazing month [...]

Leasing vs Buying My Next Car

One of the things I like about running a personal finance blog is that it provides me with the opportunity to write out my thoughts while working through a real life problem.  I have done this a few times over the years with quick examples being whether to purchase a rental property and whether to put solar on my home.  Right now, I am trying to figure out whether 1) should I lease or buy my next car, and 2) if I buy what kind of car should I buy. From the age of 17 to about 35 years old I had [...]

March 2019 Net Worth Update

I have been keeping track of my net worth and sharing my gains and losses on here for years.  Honestly, I can’t believe how long it took me to start tracking my net worth.  I am not sure how many people actually track their assets and debts outside of the personal finance world, but I am sure that if more people did the state of America’s finances would be in a better place. Thoughts Before Calculating: I usually have a feeling as to how my family has done over the past month.  Last month was probably one of my biggest gains ever.  I think this [...]

Net Worth Update February 2019

I have been keeping track of my net worth and sharing my gains and losses on here for years.  Honestly, I can't believe how long it took me to start tracking my net worth.  I am not sure how many people actually track their assets and debts outside of the personal finance world, but I am sure that if more people did the state of America's finances would be in a better place. Thoughts Before Calculating: I usually have a feeling as to how my family has done over the past month.  The past few updates were rough mainly due to end of year spending and the atrocious [...]

2019 Goals and Objectives

I can't believe this will be the 10th one of these I have written one of these blog posts!  When I wrote my first "goals and objectives" post way back in January of 2009 I could not have possibly imagined my life today.  I am sure I am not alone in that sentiment, hell, I am sure everyone that takes a look back on their life after a decade feels that way!  These posts, like my net worth updates, are what actually keeps me blogging and this website alive.  They give me something to look back at and ask if I have [...]
