Net Worth October 2022 & FIRE 🔥

November 6th, 2022 at 08:46 pm

I gained $83,955 over September's net work to finish the month at $1,129,958. $22,000 of that was cash while the rest is investments. 

Pardon me, if I already posted about this. I've thought of it often but can't recall if I ever did. My former co-worker FIRED! By that, I mean she & husband retired early. She was my first lead tech when I got out of school at 22. She was about 5 years older & pregnant at the time. She never spoke much about money, but I recall her mentioning that she & her husband were paying off their home early. I never knew anyone so young talking about paying off a home. Fast forward 22 years later and she has officially retired! They were both state workers so retired with a pension. Their boys are both in college I believe. I wouldn't be surprised if they both had scholarships. She has been posting pictures of their travels on Facebook since they retired. They seem to go non-stop. I'm so excited to know someone who actually FIRED in real life. It's so inspiring.

    It's amazing what planning can do to help people retire early. Glad your friend has succeeded.

    Good deal on your net worth increasing. I did mine comparing this September from last September and it was grim. We have lost a lot in our retirement and investments.

    I wish that I had been more financially "plugged in" to frugality and the FIRE concept when I was younger. I made so many financial mistakes. I am glad I educated myself when I did and made some big changes in time to have everything paid off and a small but decent nest egg.
