Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Hello friends if you are reading this you will soon learn all the milestones I achieved in 2013. I want to do this every New Year as a way to remember what I accomplished and as a way to help me set up my new goals going forward. I hope you succeeded in completing a few goals of your own. This past year was a very memorable one, I can’t complain as I am one step closer to reaching FI and hopefully becoming a full time blogger one day.
Now this is not a post to brag, but a way to recognize that I am finally keeping track in a personal finance capacity and that just transforms me to keep superseding past goals. I want to give you a few milestones relating to several topics, but the majority will be related to personal finance or money management.
