So before I can get to what my problems are, a little bit about me:
This year has been a lot of big changes, one right after the other. I got an associates, took a job in a new rural city, became debt free, found my own apartment (for less than 30% of my monthly income), purged most of my belongings, got my car all fixed up. I've scored a 2.5 mile commute, finally bought a bike and start riding to work next week! I've started automatic withdrawals each week to be put in to savings, which isn't much, but it's something. Got two promotions and a raise and seem for all intents and purposes, seem to be doing really well.
Now here's what I need help with:
Riding this oddly elevator like path to the top of my company, has left me searching for the next challenges. I experience post-achievement depression pretty hardcore so I try to keep busy and find something new to work on.
As a very baby Mustachian with a very baby income, I'm not super sure what my next financial goal should be once I get my savings up to 1k. I'd like to start something for retirement...I think? The goal is to be FIRE, with a paid off house, a paid off bachelors, and two dogs by the time I'm 36. So I've got 13 years to get there, but there's no time like the present.
I have, for better or for worse, also set my sights on improving my leadership skills. I'm a fairly shy and fairly eccentric individual so the thought of working out the social aspects makes my stomach swoop a loop-de-loop. I'm essentially running the company and am having some trouble connecting with my entire team as the youngest (by a lot) and as a female (in blue collar, rural, Americana).
Any advice is always appreciated!
