Net worth milestone reached: $100,000!

Post by LiterallyIronic » Sun Mar 05, 2017 4:55 pm

I know it's peanuts compared to most on this forum, but I didn't really want to brag about it to family, friends, or co-workers.

On the first of every month, I tally up the balances of all our accounts, and as of March 1st, for the first time, our checking, savings, 401k, HSA, and two Roth IRAs add up to just over $100k!

It's been a long road for me. When I started college at 17 I was ahead of the game. But I couldn't really handle the difficulty of my courses (maybe I was dumb, maybe undisciplined, maybe both) and I did not do well in them. I would barely pass most and some I retook. I eventually gave up on studying Computer Science and switched to Information Technology, which I turned out to hate. Floundered around a bit before switching to Business Management. The classes were somewhat interesting, but they were at least passable. I graduated with a 3.32 GPA right into the 2009 depression at age 25.

Getting a job was very difficult, and I ended up taking a tech support position in a call center, making $9.50/hour. Before graduating, I was making $10.50/hour doing student tech support. I eventually switched to an outbound sales call center which really sucked, but at least I was making $11.50/hour. Too bad the company went bankrupt.

Then I turned to a temp agency. They got me an office job making $13/hour. I was there for a couple years, doing some office stuff and some rudimentary computer programming in a language that makes Visual Basic look complicated. But the company eventually ran out of funds for temps and I had to look elsewhere.

I managed to talk my way into a Visual Basic programming job. I was actually up to $16/hour. This job was the job that made me realize I needed formal training in programming.

I quit just in time to start a school semester at the local university. Studying Computer Science, of all things. At age 29. I really enjoyed my classes this time, and I graduated at age 32 with a 3.72 GPA, finishing Cum Laude. During my senior year, I got a real programming job, starting at $48k and got raises up to $60k over my first year on the job.

During all this, my wife has worked as a machinist, making $12.50/hour. We had to use a lot of her income to pay for my education, since the university doesn't provide financial aid for students not on their first degree and FAFSA runs out after 180 undergraduate credits (I finished with 262).

After all that, you can understand that we came out from behind the eight ball to get our lives on track. We started investing 29% of our combined gross income as soon as I landed my first real CS job during my senior year. Our retirement savings are behind where I would want to be, but we have nearly finished saving for a 30% house down payment (I'm not comfortable with the size of the monthly mortgage payment at only 20% down).

Not only that, we finally managed to have our first (and possibly only) baby one week ago after struggles with infertility that had us on the brink of spending $20k for IVF - but we got pregnant one month before that was set to begin. Now we're proud parents.

Yes, we're down to one income, but we still invest 20% of gross and our life is amazing! (FYI - my wife will go back to work when the baby starts school, so we're just a one income family only for a few years). We have sufficient income for our needs and no debt whatsoever. We're in great shape!

In conclusion, even if you hit a rough patch in life, you can do anything if you set your mind to it!

Congratulations to you. Keep at it. You'll see the next $100k will come faster than the first and so on. Investing is a marathon and not a sprint so you'll likely be investing for a very long time. Slow and steady wins the race!

Thank you! And, you know, that's a good idea. We did have alumni guest speakers from time to time in my CS classes. I could touch base and see if they'd allow me to do that.

One word for you Young Man!!! You are Awesome!!!!

Keep it up and FYI $100K net worth is not peanuts especially at your age. I didn't start saving until my 30s and was way behind you. Good Luck with the baby, she or he has a smart father.

Great story. I like how you worked your way up and didn't give up.

Financially you are in great shape. You have a paid for degree and no other debt (besides mortgage). You say your wife is a machinist, depending on what her skills are they can be highly in demand and make great money.

The next $100k will come easier, and the next $100k even easier than that.

You know what? You're right. While there are plenty of people with a higher number than that, when I look at it written down "$100,000" it's feels like a really monumental accomplishment. We've done pretty well for ourselves, all things considered, and I hope I can provide advice or such to help others also better their lives.

You are doing really great! Keep it up. Being a boglehead, it is easy to forget that something like 70% of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck with little to no emergency savings. Let alone anything saved for retirement.

We're still researching which policy to go with, but we're looking at 20 year term with $500k coverage on each of us. We should have it in place sometime this month. I do have disability insurance already, though.

Congratulations! The absolute amount of net worth relative to others on the board isn't the important thing (they have different life situations and may have had many more years to accumulate). You've worked very hard to get to this place, and learned a lot of valuable lessons. I'm sure this won't be the last $100K in net worth you acquire! And especially, congratulations on the addition to the family. :)

Congratulations. Between my husband and I, we're at about 150K right now in 403b, IRA and brokerage funding for retirement. We're both 30 and we may not be where we should be due to getting multiple degrees and being in school for longer than usual but I suppose it is the experience that counts more :)

Having the peace of mind offered by that cushion of savings/investments is a fantastic place to be. I know too many people that have spent the majority of their life in debt $10k+. For some of them it's like they're always grasping for air and can never get ahead, others seem to keep getting into debt like it's just an expected 'normal' thing to do. The discipline you've shown to get where you are means you know how to build wealth. Keep at it. Congrats!

Your story shows that you can set goals and realign them when necessary. LIfe isn't a straight line, if it were, how boring would that be? I'm sure so many of the more seasoned members of this forum have certainly tacked and jibed a few times too. But most importantly you found a great life partner! Stay the course. ⛵

Congrats on family, work, savings, everything!

The key is coming up with a plan, sticking with it and adjusting as the market and your needs change. You've shown you're able to do that which puts you ahead of 80%+ of the people out there.

Let me add my congrats too! My first 100G took a loooong time ... the second came much faster, and I suspect you will find that true also! :sharebeer

Stay the course!

Nice job and congrats!

I remember well the struggle to reach $100,000. It took 5 years after college graduation. Every $100,000 after that became much easier.
