Another solid month. The key highlight to this month was stated in the last post. Another highlight was that M started on a new job. This job was lined up almost 10 months ago but the start was purposely chosen to be after the unofficial end of summer (Labor Day). We had one domestic and one international trip, each a week long, during the time M was enjoying time off between jobs.
One more thing of note. With the job change, and the corresponding change in salary, our combined annual income has gone past $250k. We will put up an income post for 2019 when we have the full year number.
The next near-term goal is to get the total assets up to a $1M by end of the year. Of course, a lot depends on the markets. As we have said in numerous posts, and will continue to reiterate, we fully acknowledge the huge role the bull market has played on our current state of affairs. We know the bears are bound to come at some point. We will ride those periods out.
