Net Worth Update – February 2016

Welcome to my monthly net worth post for February, 2016. Each month, I post a complete breakdown of my net worth, along with a chart showing the progression of my net worth since the start of this blog. Posting my net worth helps keep me accountable for what I do with my money, and motivates me to make better choices …

Money, Beaches and Time

Let’s go to Jamaica at the end of the month! There are times when I think that Bryan has lost his mind. This was one of them.
