Monthly Net Worth Update – January 2018


It’s a new year and so much has happened already. I am a little late with this report… almost 3 weeks. But I have been very busy. So busy in fact that I am now ENGAGED!

My girlfriend and I were over in Melbourne for the past few days and I finally decided to pop the question. She said yes of course, now we have the crazy planning stage coming up. I think it should be fun but definitely looking forward to having it all finished and be married.



Net Worth January 2018

A nice little increase this month. I believe that this year will be used for more debt paying off rather than investing but that is alright as it increases my net worth in the end so I am still happy to do that. And now I have a wedding to pay for as well!


Forward Paying Dividends January 2018

Dividends reinvested to create more forward income. I don’t expect this to increase dramatically but you never know. Fingers crossed.


Dividends Paid

I was paid by one company in January 2018. I was paid by Rural Funds Group.

I was paid $37.86 cash and paid $0.00 in tax as this is a REIT. I reinvested this cash to purchase another 16 shares adding a total of $1.60 to my forward dividend income.


Overall a pretty solid month. Net worth increased 5.55% and some really exciting things happened in my life. Looking forward to the new me.

I hope I can invest over the year but as I said this year will mostly be used for paying off debts. I am still investing in Crypto and I hope that can help explode my net worth.

How was your January?

    Congratulations on getting engaged BHL. Looks like a solid month pushing your net worth north, and now the next few months sounds like a fair bit to focus on. But exciting!

      Thanks WFT. A big year ahead for me so really going to focus on saving as much cash as we can while still playing around with my crypto and other investments. Looking forward to 2018.

    Congrats on your engagement! Just remember there are many ways to have a wedding, expensive and cheap – eloping to Hawaii is a nice option if you want to save a few dollars!! But I guess it’s usually the girl and / or extended family that determine your wedding requirements…

    Congratulations on engagement BHL!

    Have a fun wedding and don’t go crazy. I found people loved my backyard wedding because it was simple and people could just relax.
