2014 was better than expected :)
« on: January 02, 2015, 04:06:12 PM »
2014 turned out to be an amazing year for us and I just wanted to share our badassity with our fellow mustachians.

-First of all I want to share an accomplishment more important than money........ my wife is pregnant and we are expecting our first child in July :).  I think a child will make our journey to early retirement easier since the kid will probably require all my attention :).

This is our first year as hardcore mustachians and we hit the following milestones:

-Paid off the house... We send the last payment actually today. My goal was to pay off the house before I turn 30 on January 16th.
-Maxed out both our 401K's for the first time
-Some how increased our Net Worth by $110k
-Total Net Worth hit $250K.... we are quarter millionaires haha

The 2015 goal is to have $100k of total investments.
Long term goal is to retire with $700k-1M of total investments hopefully in 7-8 years.

Thanks for everyone's help
