I have been lost the past couple of months.
But Mark, you seem like a guy who has most things under control. Why were you lost?
I wasn’t lost for the reason that I had no job. I wasn’t lost because I didn’t have things to do. I wasn’t lost because of drugs.
No, my friends. I have been lost for a worse reason.
I didn’t track my money.
So my net worth has decreased.
Net Worth: -21.720,92
That’s dramatic. More dramatic than any Netflix show.
In order to hold myself accountable, I will post a money update with every blog. I shall enter my transactions in YNAB whenever I have a transaction.
If I want to build a future, I need to work hard to get myself out of debt.
Money management is a fickle issue. Need to make that consistent.
I learned this from writing and counselling and talking to my mother, who is very good with money.
For anyone who wants to get rich and free, it’s important to spend less than you earn. It’s important not to build up debts.
Last few months I have spent needless amounts on working on my blog in coffeeshops. The amount of ground up coffee I could’ve bought for that amount is enormous.
Fuck chai tea lattes. Fuck the hipster status those give me.
Hurray for drinking coffee at home.
I can still be out of debt when I leave university. But this guy has got to stay on track.
I aim to be free. In order to be free in this world, you got to have money.
No silly, of course there are things that money can’t buy. But money does buy freedom.
The game is to break free from the game. One day we’ll make it. But we have to take the correct steps.
That means discipline and budgetting. That means starting a business of my own.
Keep following this blog for a couple of years. You’ll see my net worth increase.
Until next time.
