This is the beginning of this blog.
I had an earlier blog in which I chronicled paying off a mortgage in less than five years. That mortgage happened to be a liability of my wife and myself, so I had a personal interest in the matter. It's been a year since I wrote anything in that blog, mainly because once the mortgage was paid off, there wasn't much else to say on that topic.
However, I have some other things to say, and other goals to set and hopefully achieve. That is where this new blog comes into play.
I think I was far too verbose in the last blog. I'm going to try to post more frequently here, but with more brevity.
Let's start by throwing out a goal, or a mission statement, or a purpose.
Our goal is to accumulate enough income-producing investments that both of us can leave our full-time jobs within the next ten years.
The purpose of this blog is to record our success or failure in achieving that goal.
I guess I don't have a mission statement yet. I'll work on that.
We've already made some progress in accumulating some investments. You can see them on the Portfolio page. Feel free to applaud or deride our choice of investments as you see fit.
