This is a personal journal to track my progress to accumulate enough wealth to retire by 40 (Year 2016).
I start to keep track my personal finance in June 2002 when my net worth was around US$47k. By my current estimate, I need to have a net worth of US$1,000,000 to comfortably retire with my wife back in China (my home country) and experience my other interests. I believe this goal is achievable with hard work, discipline and smart personal finance management.
I plan to analyze my progress at least monthly, and write down day-to-day thinkings about personal finance issues regularly. This should be a good journal for anyone who is interested in accumulating a meaningful moneypile from scratch.
If you have any suggestions or questions, please feel free to contact me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
