My Money Now Prints Money So Why Don’t I Feel Rich' We have entered “the zone.” Not only is a kick ass stock market helping nudge us along, but we’re generally at the tipping point that our money is printing more money. Our assets keep growing without us lifting a finger. Maybe soon we’ll be […] The post Net Worth Update November 2017: $78,361 appeared first on Money Prowess. ...

Bold Life Changes Derek and I have big goals. When I started publishing our net worth, we were -$4328. It’s hard to get to early financial independence saddled by a big debt burden and low net worth. We’re now up to over $80k! But, we still feel (and are) so far from the type of […] The post Behind My House Hunt: Deciding to Make Bold Life Changes appeared first on ...

Net Worth: $65,977 Month Change: +$8035   Check out those Assets! My 401(k) went up by almost $6,000. I didn’t crack the stock market. I had a big fat bonus check so 14% of that went into my 401(k) in addition to my 14% of my regular salary. That plus some gains (and potentially timing of if my last reconciling included July’s contribution or my employer’s match) equals “Whoa big money!” You can also see ...

I’m teaching myself how to build an effective website at the same time I’m figuring out how to produce useful content and distribute it to grow an audience. I’d like to take you behind the scenes into what it takes to build up this business as I go along. Here’s my first foray. I’ll tell you all about making website buttons. But first, some background. My Content Management System of Choice I’m ...

Do you want to make money by barely lifting a finger? Who doesn’t! Referral links are a powerful tool in a marketer’s arsenal. They’re basically outsourcing marketing to end users, who they’re hoping will happily and readily encourage others to sign up for the product too in exchange for a little incentive. I now have a slew of referral links from some of the core products and services that I ...

As I’m building up this site, I’m hyper conscious of the fact it’s costing more to build and maintain than I’m able to earn from it. I’d love to have a web developer and designer on retainer who I work closely with to realize my vision. But, it’s not realistic right now for me to spend the time or money to make full brand guidelines and custom graphics. Enter free and ...

Recently, I spied bed slats, nicely bundled with tape, next to the trash bins in front of a building a few doors down from our house. I scooped them up. Lu’s spent the past few months sleeping on a mattress on the floor of her room since we upgraded her from a crib. We need a bed frame, but I don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on particle board ...

So you went to college! Hooray! Hopefully you even grabbed a degree or two before you got out. If you’re like us, you’re one of the 44.2 million Americans who have student loan debt. I enrolled in college twice and got myself two degrees in total. My husband enrolled in maybe three or four different degree or certificate granting programs at different times. He took courses, on and off, for ...

Our net worth leaped up over 16k in one month! This is all due to investing in a speculative new stock that increased 10x overnight. Just kidding. That just about never happens. I finally got paid an annual performance bonus in one large lump sum. Net Worth: $57,943 Bringing in the big bucks What do you do when money rains down on you? I received a sizeable performance bonus in last month’s ...
