|Well that first half of 2021 went quick. But it was also a prosperous one. Thanks to skyrocketing property values, net worth has increased at the fastest rate since beginning this whole tracking business. But the journey isn't nearly done yet!|
Some mid-year rebalancing needed to take place. I've loaded up the investment brokerage account to reach a 15% savings rate, with more going in at the end of the year in order to hit the original 18% goal. I'm thinking of investing in international ETFs to round out my US-heavy AA exposure, but waiting (as usual) for a sizable pullback before tossing that dry powder in the cooker. Extra money has also been put aside for the kitchen "refresh" coming up in 6-9 months. That'll probably be a $10k project but I'm already past the halfway point for that goal.
Next month should be a nice advance with a freelance paycheck coming in, as well as annual residuals from a network TV show, which is projected to be very sizable compared to years past. That $1MM goal is still off in the distance, coming closer with every step. But economies can change on a dime, so we can only hope for the best outcome in the months ahead. Cheers!
