First Quarter Update

The first quarter of 2019 was a welcome change from the end of 2018. It was also what I consider the beginning for us in terms of our pursuit to achieve financial independence.

We had purchased our new RV in the middle of 2018 for which we used a significant amount of cash. Then I stumbled upon a blog by Mr.1500 at which peaked my interest in the #FIRE movement. Following his blog and journey to #FIRE was an awakening for me. It made me question our lifestyle and ultimately helped set us on our own journey to achieve a life detached from the constraints of a required work day. It’s amazing that such a simple concept can change one’s life so dramatically.

Here is how we ended the first quarter of 2019.

Portfolio- $935,504 (Cash and Investments)

Portfolio Goal – $1,500,000

Amount needed to reach goal – $564,496

Our portfolio increased by $104,025 which is about 12.5% from the end of 2018.

Net Worth – $1,125,231
