This 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.)
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→
It'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→
As a part of my New Year's Resolution, I've decided to read one book relating to financial education a month. This month I was an unstoppable reading robot hell-bent on covering as much ground as possible. Due to my tenacity, I completed not one, not two, but three financial education books! Below are the titles and a brief review, as well as my recommendation.Continue reading→
