7 digits net worth!
« on: July 12, 2014, 10:38:09 AM »
Mr. Geek just had some company stock vest, and the market is hovering around 17k... so we hit our first magic million milestone.
Seeing '1' as the first digit on Personal Capital this morning was awesome.

Next one is a million without counting the positive value on the house (Zillow - ZillowIsWrong - Mortgage). And I'm sure the market will fluctuate down at some point, but from here on it only gets easier.

WOOO!

I'm Ms. Geek (sorry for the vague grammar) - Mr. Geek's stock vested :)
We're celebrating by smiling badassily to ourselves.

Great new! It only gets easier from here, as even a conservative return of 6% will start charging ahead very quickly.

I also hit $100k late last summer, and am looking forward to $200k in 2015! (fingers crossed)

Great stuff!

Yay! Congratulations.

We're almost there and should hit the 7 digit NW at the end of the year, or next spring, depending on the market.. We're saving almost 75k a year between 401ks, Roths, after tax contributions. I can't wait, and then like you, it will be on to excluding our house!

The first million usually takes the longest and the rest will follow once you are over that hurdle.

Thanks to compounding, it's an ever-easier trip to the next million! Congratulations, that's impressive.
