Hello Everyone, this is my October 6, 2017 Net Worth Update.
My stock portfolio has increased over the past year with very little outside contribution. My dividends are averaging a little over $500 dollars per month. I have mainly been adding to my emergency fund to reach a goal of $10,000.00 which I have just about accomplished. I know my goals keep changing. This is because I am not sure if I will be working at my job after December, so my goals are very short sited!
My plan for the rest of the year is to add 95% of my paycheck to my 403b. I am doing this for three reasons: #1 to take advantage of some extra hours that I am working at work, #2 to decrease my taxable income, and #3 to cut my paycheck down to almost nothing so that I can feel the burn and hopefully this will spurn me on to focus on building up my paypal account through reselling. If I do not earn enough money to cover my bills through reselling I will have to use the money in my PayPal or charge to my credit card. 🙂
My goal is to earn money outside of work through reselling and eventually quit my day job. My day job pays well but I am looking for a way out of the daily grind… I would like to have control of my time and this control is becoming more important to me the older I get!
