Apparently, I compiled my net worth update for March 2019 and then never posted it. I saw that I hadn’t updated online since November and realized I needed to call out that I received a small stock windfall before I posted numbers showing a wild swing in fortunes. And so, best intentions became regretted delays. […] The post Net Worth Update – April 2019: $120,612 appeared first on Money Prowess. ...

Do you remember the Monopoly Community Chest card that says “From Sale of Stock you get $45”? Well, sometimes those windfalls happen in real life too. I got $41,194.20 from a stock payout late last year. Here’s how I spent it: I wrote a $6,000 check to pay back a short-term loan from a family […] The post I blew almost $40,000 in 5 minutes.

Net Worth: $61,960 Stock slump got me down Whoosh! 10k in value gone from my retirement accounts in a few days. What an awesome amazing problem to have. It also doesn’t matter. Like it matters, but not to me, not right now. It would matter if I was about to take out money from my […] The post Net Worth Update: November 2018 appeared first on Money Prowess. ...

Net Worth: $78,909 Dutiful Tracking, Deplorable Sharing I’ve still been dutifully tracking my net worth month over month. I’ve been terrible, however, at posting it publicly. The story’s getting more complicated, which is why I’ve had a hard time committing numbers to the world.  Since it’s been so long, I’m comparing October’s numbers with what […] The post Net Worth Update: October 2018 appeared first on Money Prowess. ...

How long does it take to hang 10 blinds? If you were thinking a few hours, you’re off by an order of magnitude. It’s been weeks and half my windows are covered with shabbily taped up paper while blinds sit rolled up in a chair, waiting to be hung. Something else always comes up. Or […] The post I Own a House and Now I’m just Tired ALL THE TIME appeared ...

Net Worth Update: $50,070 I Fell Off the Net Worth Reporting Wagon for 5 Months! It didn’t seem like it’s been that long. Apparently, this is the first of 2018 and I’m totally not prepared for it to be momentous. As I said, I bought a house. And not just any house, a three family […] The post Net Worth Update May 2018: $50,070 appeared first on Money Prowess. ...

I closed on a 3-family house! I realized last night that I didn’t buy my personal home (although I will live in one unit), I effectively bought my first business. I’m now a landlord and property manager, hoping to earn revenue and good returns off rental income. On January 5th, I didn’t even know this […] The post I didn’t buy a house, I bought a business appeared first on Money ...

I put an offer in on a house and it was accepted. I’m now deep in the weeds of validating this is a good idea before my 10-day inspection period expires and I lose my deposit if I later decide to back out. It’s a gorgeous 3-unit house in a great neighborhood. But It feels […] The post I’m buying a house! appeared first on Money Prowess. ...

Selling on Ebay is a great side hustle. I listed a pair of Lu’s outgrown shoes for $12 or best offer. I got $10 for them. Subtracting the Ebay and Paypal fees, that’s $7.26 in my pocket for a few minutes snapping pictures after Lu went to bed. Say it took me 20 minutes total […] The post Ebay: The Perfect Side Hustle appeared first on Money Prowess. ...

Net Worth Update: $80,471 Woot! Officially over the $80,000 net worth barrier. After reading the Globe piece noting median net worth in Boston ($8 for US blacks vs $247,500 for whites), it puts our position in further local perspective. We’re sooo close to have $200,000 in retirement savings alone. As the year wraps up, I’ll […] The post Net Worth Update December 2017: $80,471 appeared first on Money Prowess. ...
