Hey everyone – I thought this would be worthwhile since I received a lot of good feedback after publishing $1 Million Net Worth… Now What?. I’ll update this on a monthly basis moving forward:
My intent is not to boast. If you’re on the path to financial independence, I hope this inspires you as others have done for me (particularly Joe at Retire by 40).
I came out of college with student loans and a ton of credit card debt like a lot of you. My job paid well, but it was definitely not excessive – I wasn’t making doctor or lawyer pay by any means. We kept our expenses low and just continued to save and invest as much as we can.
I’ve made a lot of financial mistakes along the way, but I’ve since taken control and, as you can see, we’ve built a solid nest egg for our early retirement.
