A new leaf

August 9th, 2019 at 10:27 am

My job interview with the private school went well and I was offered the position (part-time). I start right after Labor Day. The pay is enough to cover our mortgage and continue funding my ROTH IRA. It is 1/3 of what I used to earn but it was expected. Not having credit card, student loans or car debt to pay as well as a healthy emergency fund has given us more freedom to earn and work less and still be able to live a meaningful life. We have to continue being resourceful, but it's a trade off I'll gladly take.

    Congratulations. Being able to pay mortgage and retirement, and to still have plenty of time left over to find work-life balance is wonderful.
