Phi's April 2016 Update

phi's april 2016 updateThis month, I've slightly expanded the graphical content which I first implemented last month and was able to see (in the "Track Phi" graph) a visible difference in the accumulation of wealth!  (I'm also trying to write less in these monthly updates, as I believe these articles will be enjoyed more for their math and pictures than their words.)

Phi's March 2016 Update - Snowdrop Flower

Phi's March 2016 Update

Phi's March 2016 Update - Snowdrop Flower

This month I'm changing the way I do my monthy reflections.  I've felt something wasn't quite how I wanted it with my monthly updates, but couldn't put my finger on it until today - they lack reference!  I want StairwayOfPhi to be a place where newcomers can use as a tool of reference and having to sort through my articles to pull out and track net worth, liquid assets, income, etc. isn't alright!  From now on, I'll be showing real-time just how quickly wealth really accumulates!

Starting this month, my monthly updates will be a lot more cut-and-dry.  All the work will be done for those who want to analyze my efforts and progress.  Rather than having text updates condensing what's happened in the past 30-ish days, my monthly update articles will have hard figures (visualized in the form of graphs).  In the event of a deviance, I'll give specific explanations as to why my figures grow/shrink/perform unexpectedly.  And, as always, if something doesn't make sense, feel free to leave a comment!

On top of the new mathematical reformat, I will STILL be doing my monthly book reviews.Continue reading

Phi's February 2016 Update

Phi's February 2016 Update - Almond FlowersIt's monthly review time and I'd like to start by saying that this has been the most successful, slam-packed, crazy month I've ever lived!  I knew that for the first half of the month getting things together for the new house would be a time-sink and money-sink, but going into that expectation I was under the impression that the second half would let up on me.  Boy, was I wrong!Continue reading
