Wow. I did it. On March 13, 2013 my total portfolio value (including cash) exceeded $100,000. That’s six-figures folks. And I did it before my 31st birthday.
How did this happen?
Well, let’s take a look back. In January 2010 I found myself with $7,000 in my checking account and over $25,000 in student loan debt. I realized that I was worth more as a baby ($0) than I was at 27 years old (-$19,000). That’s a problem. Something had to change. And change it did.
