My Financial Situation

As someone who writes about how to earn more, save more, and invest wisely, I think it’s helpful to share a peek at my own personal financial situation.

On this page you can find my monthly income and my net worth since I started tracking it back in January of 2017.

For those who are curious, I track my cash flow using Mint and I track my investments and my net worth using Personal Capital.

Monthly Income

I earn income through four unique websites I run (Four Pillar Freedom, Collecting Wisdom, Statology, Wander Cincinnati) along with dividends from REITs and stocks I own.

The following  chart shows my total monthly income from these sources since January 2017.

Note: This chart only shows my monthly online income. Before I quit my job as a data scientist in June 2019, I also earned a 9-5 income.

Net Worth

Current net worth: $127,590
