I have had an amazing month of work. Contracted out 47+ hours per week of work. Several web design projects and a new one heading into October. I am so grateful!
Being consistent and persistent has really paid off over the past year as I have rebuilt my business from the ground up. And I truly love what I do.
While work is relatively steady and I really do not have the capacity to take on any more regular work hours. I am remaining diligent about continually marketing myself and applying for different projects.
The Financial Side
I think it goes without saying that with all the work I have been doing. And with the quiet steady life we are living these days. My bank account is growing.
Other than paying regular bills, including debt, I have not really touched or looked at it. Just letting it grow.
There was one unexpected expense…but I pulled it out of budgeted money. I had to buy Princess an expensive graphing calculator. To the tune of $130! Ouch! I guess it’s pretty standard these days. And I was grateful that I was able to easily afford it without stressing. But I sure did emphasize to her about not losing it. She is taking 3 math classes this semester and picking up an engineering class in the spring so I know she will use it.
I going to continue this same plan into October…just pay bills and let the money grow. And during that time will evaluate all the advice given regarding balancing saving for retirement along with my debt payoff. I mentioned in the comments somewhere, that I’m forecasting my EF will reach the 6 month level around the end of the year, first of next year…
Overall, I truly am living my best life. Settled, quiet and truly enjoying each day. It’s such a nice place to be after the roller coaster of the last few years. But I know I still have a ways to go.
