I know $1M isn’t the same as it used to be, but it’s a goal I set 10+ years ago for myself, so it’s nice to finally reach it. Nor was this overnight. It’s been a long, slow grind.

I didn’t come from money. Quite the opposite, as only one parent graduated high school and we sometimes lived paycheck to paycheck. (I remember a few drives with my mom to pay the electrify bill & get the lights turned back on.) I graduated college with >60-70k in debt. ( in today’s dollars, adjusted for inflation, it would be ~90k.)

I’ve learned a lot about money the hard way and a made lot of mistakes over the years. But I stuck with it, and figured each time, it was simply the price of learning each lesson. One of the great things is that I’ll be able to pass those lessons on to my kids (hopefully).

I also find that I’m motivated by others success stories, so I thought I’d share mine.

Even if you’re in the hole, hang in there. You may not get rich over night, but with persistance, you’ll get there!
