Hello, World! I’m Anon. I might choose to reveal my identity later on, but for now, let’s just be friends.
The objective of this blog is accountability. I’m not all that great at sticking with a plan, or mapping out my goals. I get excited about things for a couple of weeks and then slip back into the same old bad habits. I listen to different podcasts about money, personal finance, financial independence, and yet I still struggle to follow the principles taught by them. I tell myself: “It’s just that you don’t make enough to pay off your debt.” And: “If only I had a little more breathing room, then I would be financially responsible.” Well that’s a load of BS. I can fool myself, but I can’t fool the Internet. I won’t want to admit to wasting money on a blog about personal finance, but I’m committed to being honest.
Whether I’ll have any visitors to this blog, who knows. But it will act as a journal of sorts. Hopefully I can look back and be proud of my progress. I hope I’ll make it to my goal of being a millionaire by 40.
My first few goals are to establish a written budget with my wife, cut out expenses any unnecessary expenses, and work as much as possible to generate income to pay off my $8,000 in credit card debt.
I’m currently looking to break into the IT career field, hoping to eventually be in CyberSecurity. Meanwhile, my wife works part-time and is in college studying to become a RadTech. We live in the South-Eastern US, and our big goal right now is to save up enough money to live comfortably in New York City within 3-5 years. We’re both extremely busy and we have a lot of work ahead of us, but we both know it will all have been worth it when we look back on these days.
What to Expect From “My Financial Adventure”
- Regular blog posts about financial progress (or mistakes)
- Suggestions on reading material, podcasts, and YouTube videos
- Photography from my wife, Mrs. Anon (Which will replace all these stock photos)
- Opinion pieces on FI, leveraging debt, and credit cards as I try to figure out where I stand on these topics
I hope you’ll enjoy this blog. Thanks for viewing.
