    43. $100K Milestone Achieved!

    "The first $100k is a b*!#% but you gotta do it." - Charlie Munger
    We finally did it! When we started this podcast we promised that we would be very transparent about our own financial journeys. This month we want to talk about a very important milestone: $100,000 net worth. It's been a very long road to get here and we recognize that we both have a VERY long journey ahead of us, but this is still very exciting! This just proves that everything that we're doing is working so far and headed in the right direction. In this week's episode, we'll share with you guys what our portfolios look like and what the key factors were in achieving a six-figure net worth at an early age. There's going to be a lot to relate to in this one and a lot of gems that you'll be able to take away for your own life. You won't want to miss it!
