It’s time for another financial update, so let’s check in with my YNAB account:
My current net worth is $102,746.75. That’s up $5,463.23 from my March net worth of $97,283.52. Total freelance earnings for March (including self-publishing royalties) were $7,388.57, so that was part of it, but my investments also did pretty well; according to Vanguard, I gained $1,896.37 in investment returns in the past month.
I spent $2,676.47 in March on personal expenses and $212 on business expenses. The personal expenses number is higher this month because I started making purchases towards both a personal vacation and a family trip, both of which I’ll take in June; February’s $1,212.15 represents a more typical personal expenses month. (Yes, that includes rent-bills-food-fun-everything.)
According to the financial independence calculators, I should hit FI in April 2030, eleven years from now.
I’m still going to try to beat that goal. ❤️
