Wow!  2018 flew by!  Happy New Year!  2018 was another blessed year for our family.  We were on track to hit all of our goals until the stock market dropped at the end of the year.  Even though we only hit three of our five 2018 financial goals, I still am counting it as a very good year.  Here are the details:   1) Pass our 2022 Net Worth Goal  - FAIL We had a very good chance to hit our 2022 net worth goal of $721,500 but the market dump at the end of the Read more [...]

2018 Financial Goals

Happy New Year!  2017 was a great year for our net worth but we somehow only hit three of our five 2017 financial goals.  I hope we have better luck hitting our goals for 2018.  Here they are:
