I was fortunate enough to finally hit this milestone. Feel confident that I am enough over that it will stick.

Welcome aboard!  We've been gaining folks on one side and graduating them out the other at a pretty fair clip this year.

Thank you! The markets have been good to me. I haven't even been putting new money in and have even sold off some company stock for a large purchase. It feels great.

Liquid NW / Total NW

1/1/16: $455k / 675k
1/1/17: $555k / 822k
1/1/18: $735k / 1.071M
1/1/19: $765k / 1.152M
1/1/20: $1.049M / 1.531M
4/1/20: $810k / 1.278M
7/1/20: $1.042M / 1.524M
10/1/20: $1.138M / 1.641M
1/1/21: $1.370M / 1.883M
2/1/21: $1.392M / 1.914M
3/1/21: $1.451M / 1.973M
4/1/21: $1.434M / 2.010M
5/1/21: $1.476M / 2.053M

Money seems like it's leaking out of every orifice to fix up - and own - our two houses (one to live in, one to prep for sale).  Market continues to give back, though; it's mostly been a matter of managing our cash flow and taxes.

I guess I'm graduating from this thread, less than three years after joining it. Not that I've done much more than lurk. I guess the first million really is the hard one. Didn't really think I'd get to this point, but life is full of surprises. Nice when they're good surprises.

Best of luck to everybody here, though if you're here I'd hardly say you need it.

@OurTown , I saw your post announcing you've joined the double-comma club, and I saw your profile picture, which reminded me of LittleFinger's excellent "The Climb is all there is" speech from season III of "Game of Thrones".

1.2 million was my earlier goal. But it now seems like I'm moving the goal post.

Lol funny how that happens, isn't it?  2 years ago I was thinking 1.5M would be just about right, and now that Im basically there, I canít believe how I ever thought that would be enough!

I started tracking finances in Quicken in 1998. Lowest net worth was a few years later at around -$20,000 when I added in student loans. First became eligible to join this club late 2016. Today is the first day showing over $2,000,000. Although normal fluctuations are likely to bounce me below this milestone several times, I'm going to call it today and say that I have graduated out of this club.
