| Recently retired firefighter with attorney wife. 4 kids ages 7 and under.|
|Why I Joined|
|My wife and I have kept a written budget since the day we were married (over 10 years now). I believe in the power of a written plan and tracking NW in an online community like this has helped keep me motivated and I learn from others.|
|Best Financial Decision|
|3 of them:
1) Debt Free. Making paying off all of our $100K+ student loan debt a top priority when we first got married. We learned how to set goals, work together and achieve great things.
2) Real Estate. Buying the smallest home we could find in the most expensive part of town in early 2010. We then renovated it and added on, sold it for 4x our purchase price and invested the proceeds into rental properties AND bought a great home for our family.
3) Budgeting. Using a written budget.|
|Worst Financial Decision|
|Thankfully we have not made any huge errors yet (that we know of ). The small mistakes along the way have taught us great lessons.|
