|As at March 1. February was another excellent month for earnings, eclipsing December 2016 as my 2nd best earning month of all times. In the face of significant expenses having to do with my Father's health, my home insurance, home repair (bloody termites!) and community involvement I managed to achieve an S&I rate of 56.9% - exactly the same as last month. Consequently, my liquid reservoir ('CASH") has been bumped up to quite a healthy level. The truth, though, is that 2017 is projected to be a high-spend year for me and it will take quite a lot to keep my reservoir flowing north. The plan is to cram as many of these extraordinary expenses as possible into the first half of the year. The expense load for March and April should be particularly heavy. Here's to continued strong earnings.
In other news: Stocks did a little northward jig; Passive Income for the month came in at just under $2k and is now at $4,758.82 Y-T-D, representing 44.84% of Y-T-D spending. This is a very key metric that I will be paying very close attention. I expect it to decline over the course of the next few months before rising to - at the very least - 52% by the end of the year.|
