|December 31. A grinding kind of month to end a mixed year. Main headlines for 2017: Job Revenue increased by 9.91% Y-O-Y but still fell way short of my (over-ambitious?) target; Office expenses were kept under control; Personal expenses skyrocketed to an all time high and recorded a staggering 25.85% Y-O-Y increase. Primarily as a result of this savings came in at a very sub-par 21.41% WAAAY below my usual target of 40% and my adjusted 2017 target of 35%. The main culprit was a VERY expensive, but thoroughly enjoyable family Disney trip. Still, a very difficult pill to swallow. On a brighter note, passive income came in above projections at $30,205.20 representing 51.35% of 2017 living expenses; NW increased by 27.81% YO-Y and by 275.36% of 2017 job income; I am now in the process of starting a small taxi service as an additional path to my Great Escape - I expect it to be fully operational by March.
I expect 2018 to be a year of quiet progress and discipline and restraint.
BEST WISHES TO ALL.|
