Net Worth Update (April 2018)

Posted on

Previous update here. Quick Summary: April was a productive month – one of the most productive I’ve had in a while. I can only put that down to having a bit of extra time over Easter to rest and work on my PhD. The momentum has stuck which is superb. My blog reached a few milestones […]

Net Worth Update (March 2018)

Posted on

Previous update here. I had a relatively quiet start to the year and in February especially. This lead to lower income in March. I suppose it’s part and parcel of being your own boss and not having a regular salary! It really struck me this month how important finishing my PhD is becoming. I’m still at […]

Previous update here. Quick Summary: February was a quiet month at work, which allowed me to get a ton of work done on my PhD – I can almost taste the finish.

Net Worth Update (October 2017)

Previous update here. Quick Summary: I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. It feels like the past 10 months have gone by in three! Kept my head above water in October, just. Cash increased a little. International markets have been soaring of late, and my retirement account breached $40k for the first time ever. […]

Net Worth Update (September 2017)

Posted on

Previous update here. Quick Summary: September became a bit of a blur with so much going on I’ve barely given thought to my finances. Although this blog isn’t the place to talk about those things, they made me realise how unimportant money or material wealth is to me. Not that finance holds zero import – because lets […]
