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. ...

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 ...
