Instead of providing monthly updates, I will be providing biannual updates so I can actually tend to my other projects. I started this series to reflect on our goals and share some things I learned while working towards our financial goals.
I hope you get some value from this and if you haven’t already, check out the free tools I use that are helping us keep our financial house in order.
Our Progress to Financial Independence (FI)
To Financial Independence
Those of you who have been following my story for a little while know that I am quite the workaholic. During my last update (December 2019) I talked about reducing my hours at work. Well, it turns out I did, but not by choice. The outpatient PT clinic I used to pick up 8 – 16 extra hours per week closed down due to the pandemic. While they have recently opened up, I do not anticipate they will need me to return anytime soon.
On the bright side, my full-time job as a home care physical therapist has ramped back up to almost 40 hours a week. It is the first time that I have returned to a 40-hour work-week since 2015 so I am finding more time on my hands than I am used to. This doesn’t mean that I am spending my time lounging around though.
I have been working on a few projects, one of them I should release by the next update if things go well. Stay tuned!
