Sometimes it feels like I’m not making much progress, but then I look back at views like this and it puts things in perspective for me. In just over two years that I’ve been tracking my net worth, It’s gone from about $70k to over $210k in two years. That’s insane and something to be proud of. To those who may be feeling the same way, zoom out a bit and see how you’ve done over the last few years.

Another month that I made a few strategic bets. You may be wondering why my “investments” section didn’t go up more given how well the market has done lately. The answer is I moved a bit more money from my taxable account into my crypto portfolio. Crypto has done really well lately and I continue to feel good about its growth over the next few years. Plus, all of the money I do have in investments serves as a buffer in case crypto goes to zero. I still believe that’s a possibility, so I don’t put any more into crypto than what I’m willing to lose completely.
I’ve also got a bit of debt still on my 0% APR credit card from my wedding, but I expect to pay this off in the next few months to get back to debt free. As much as I want to pay it off immediately, it actually doesn’t make as much sense because I can earn more interest in my high-yield savings account (3%) than I would paying off a 0% APR card.
Have you guys done well lately? I hope so. Until next month!
