I am often intrigued by articles that say things like, “How I paid $80,000 off in 6 months,” and “I slayed my student loans in under a year!” But once I read these articles, I find out that these individuals make over $200,000 annually, live in a low-cost area, and have roommates.
After 5 years of completing one credential right after another, all of that education is finally paying off. Yes, I am getting a raise!
So far, so good is all I can say at this point. My quarterly increments are working out quite well, even though I’m a bit behind on the savings portion of this quarter’s plan.
I’ve only recently begun to plan 15+ years out for my future. Until now, it was hard for me to imagine where I’d be (realistically!) in 5, 10, or 20 years.
