One of the things I thought I would touch on before I actually start my mad dash for the double would be to continue on the topic of how I was able to get into the position I am in now. I started this conversation in an earlier post, but when I thought about it, realized there was much more to it than just save, save, save. Over the next several days, I will dive a little bit into my personal life and let you all in on how I've been able to get where I am today, creating a site where I just might blow $20,000.
I didn't do all of this by accident. If there is one thing my life has been, it's been deliberate. I've been relatively successful in my life, and I think it's very important that you understand just who you are getting in the car with before we all take this journey. More importantly, I think I can share some advice and insight on the one thing I have been really good at doing thus far, managing my career and saving for retirement.
My ability to start this little project of mine is a direct result of my ability to manage my career and finances. These are two things I think are vitally important to people of all ages but especially so to people like me who are in the earlier parts of their career. I might go off in some strange directions that don't make sense at first, but believe me, it will all come together in the end.
