Net Wealth Updates


This section is where I post about my numbers and net wealth in general.

It’s a long and winding road to FIRE, come on the journey with me!

My numbers revealed…September 2017

First post on this! Circa $1.1m at the time.

January Net Wealth Update…January 2020

Second post and a fair time between updates… $1.42m

February Net Wealth Update… February 2020

Ah abit of consistency now! Still $1.42m

March Net Wealth Update… March 2020

Let’s not have too many March 2020’s… absolutely rollercoaster that was. Somehow still $1.42m by the skin of my TEETH.

April Net Wealth Update… April 2020

Whew, so volatility has eased but we haven’t escaped, deliberately marked down valuations in the real estate portfolio… $1.33m

May Net Wealth Update… May 2020

More stability, which isn’t the worst thing! Australia’s social isolation is easing… which means the chance of a 2nd wave is rising, will it happen? Eeked out a small gain… $1.34m

June Net Wealth Update… June 2020

The calm before the storm? Certainly the 2nd wave is approaching… End of Financial Year as well, what a rough 6 months it’s been! Still, a small gain… $1.37m

July Net Wealth Update… July 2020

2nd wave is here now, but the markets haven’t reacted the way I thought they would. Also ripped off a HUGE bandaid, cost me $25k in realized losses… holding onto $1.37m

August Net Wealth Update… August 2020

No big moves for August, about as steady eady as she goes. Although have to say, slowly positioning for the “big” one, if it ever comes… tipped over to $1.38m

September Net Wealth Update… September 2020

US Presidential elections coming up, I’m more excited about that to tell the truth! Portfolio is another steady month, just a tax refund and some small trades for pocket money… chipped over to $1.39m

October Net Wealth Update… October 2020

2nd and 3rd waves fully in effect overseas right now, very grateful to be living here in Oz. Although not too shabby on the investing front, well poised for a huge month in November… etched into $1.4m
