I will admit that the path to my current wealth has been a combination of factors and events, everything from hard work, to luck, and just about everything in between. In the personal finance blogging community I seem to find few bloggers in the same financial standing as myself. For our age, (29 and 30), my husband and I have accumulated a sizable net worth, including two homes. We have no debt other than our mortgages and our primary home is set to be paid off before we turn 40. On Wednesday I was considering removing the details of my net worth from my blog, but Alex’s comment led me down a different path.
Rather than removing the details, (for now), I have decided to blog about the details of my financial journey. How have my husband and I managed to save so much money in just a few short years. Obviously, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and it has taken many years and a lot of discipline to lead us to our current financial status.
As with any story mine cannot be duplicated, but some of the principle decisions and turning points in my life certainly can be. If you are reading this blog you may be too old for many of the decisions, but if nothing else I hope you can impart the thoughts and ideas on your own children.
My thoughts and feelings about finances were formed at a young age, but important decisions in high school, college, and just after graduation have been the largest factors in transforming my wealth. The posts that follow will retrace the steps of my journey.
