Plodding Along to Road to Balance Sheet Affluent

October 12th, 2010 at 03:25 pm

I haven't sat back to see where we were on our journey to Balance Sheet Affluent (formula is there on my sidebar if you're interested) for quite awhile. Today I had a "sit back and look at the big picture" afternoon and decided to do an update. We're at 1.72 times expected net worth, which means we are solidly on track (actually, a bit ahead of schedule right now).

I guess we'll just keep plodding along, doing what we have been doing: working, spending sensibly, saving, and investing conservatively.

In the folder where I track our net worth and our journey to BA, I have a sheet of paper with the following words in big bold letters. These are what Dr. Stanley (author of "The Millionaire Mind") says are common characteristics of those who are Balance Sheet Affluent:
Integrity
Discipline
Social Skills
Supportive Spouse
Hard Work

P.S. - I bought my first Series EE Savings Bond recently! I will blog about that next.

P.P.S. - Way off topic, but has anyone heard from Brooklyn Girl? I wonder & worry how she is doing.

    I'm working about Brooklyn Girl myself.

    Why the EE? Smile

    I was wondering if she responded to Laura's (momscents) invitation to e-mail her.
