Net Worth Update (June 2017)

Posted on

Previous update here. Quick Summary: Last month, my plan of attack was to replenish my emergency fund. Plan executed. I added $1250 and saved a further $400 (post -tax) to my retirement account, which means the government co-contribution of $500 applies (contributing a total of $1000). It’s a small concession – I couldn’t contribute a cent pre-tax […]

Aussies Get Free $50 With ING Direct…

Posted on

This post shamelessly includes an affiliate link. But only because i) I use ING Direct for my emergency fund to get 3.00% p.a. interest on their savings account, and ii) we both get free money out of it. Read on if you’re interested in opening an account…if not, give this post a miss. If you’re an Aussie […]

Net Worth Update (December 2016)

Posted on

Previous update here. Quick Summary: December flew past as I kept up hours at work as best I could. The biggest change that occurred was moving house into a small studio apartment closer to work. This cuts my commute by 2 whole hours each and every day, with 10 extra hours each week I can use for producing income, […]

2016 Goals Review

Posted on

Earlier this year, I posted about how I set goals and listed a bunch of financial and non-financial goals for 2016. Now that 2016 is coming to a close, it’s time to take a look at how I did. I was far more diligent in the first half of 2016, and since October let my focus slide […]

Net Worth Update (November 2016)

Posted on

Previous update here. Hey there! In a strange sense of déjà vu, November seemed to slink by quietly, like a whale migrating south for winter. Mostly I enjoyed the month, formally worked 4-days/week in my new job and scrambled on the other days to complete work for the University then get a little relaxation (no progress on the PhD, actually I’m now […]

Net Worth Update (October 2016)

Previous update here. Hey there! I feel a bit like the late kid to the party this month. I’ve taken my sweet time sitting down to write this net worth update for two reasons – i) I’ve been busy starting my new job and ii) the numbers aren’t too exciting. October tasted pretty sour in some […]

Net Worth Update (September 2016)

Posted on

Previous update here. Hey there! I was hoping to do a couple of blog posts in September (actually, in August) but I placed blogging on the back burner – as much as I love you guys! October was productive, in that I continued working 3 jobs (lecturer, tutor, academic) and setting up my own business. My PhD […]

Net Worth Update (August 2016)

Posted on

Previous update here. Hey guys! I’m pretty excited to share this post. Last month was epic, truth be told. I’ve written before that I’m intending to start a small business, and it’s becoming a reality faster than I anticipated. During August I spoke with two accountants and a lawyer for advice on how to structure the business […]
