Broke the $400k mark in NW!  I was reviewing my spreadsheets and it absolutely blows me away that I was sitting with a negative net worth 4.5 years ago! No hand outs, just an eye opening read of MMM and some serious hard work and conscious decisions.

June 1, 2018 - $385,931
July 1, 2018 - $389,444
August 1, 2018 - $393,286
September 1, 2018 - $406,838       + $13,552 m/m

Bigger jump than normal for me as I got my annual pension update and found out I was under reporting for last year in my spreadsheets. Also had a bit of a raise Aug 1.

October 1, 2018 - $412,660      +5,821

Keep on moving closer...

I just cam by to see how long it's taken other people here to get from 250 to 500. Seems like the average is about 3-4 years?

I think I hit 250 somewhere around mid-2016. Took a year sabbatical away from work last year. I think we'll hit 500 sometime mid to late next year. So 3 years with not working one of those year.

I keep going back and forth on how much longer I want to work for money. There are a few irons in the fire that might help me make my decision. Looking at an estimation chart going from 500k to 1.2mil take about 8-12 years which means I don't need to keep working in my current position. I want to find a job that I can travel with/ work abroad in. I think 500k before I'm 30 is enough to say that I should be finding work that I want to do instead of going to full FIRE.

This losing streak is brutal.   Good buying opportunity,  but really unpleasant to look at.

I hope it stays down for at least another week - I get paid next week so my 401k contribution hits then, lol

Mine hit today. Dh's will hit on Monday. I'm okay with the ability to buy more shares than last week.
