In Ask Sherry

Ask Sherry: The nicest compliment I’ve ever received was…

You asked, and I am answering every Friday once I have enough questions!

What is your favourite book of all time?

Right now, hands down, The Glass Castle. That book opened my mind, helped me see things differently, process life in another way.. it is a memoir on her life, but WHAT a memoir.

What is the nicest thing someone has ever said to you?

My mother, who when I was young, feeling like I had a fat chubby body, acne, glasses, totally uncoordinated and ugly, said: I had no idea I had such a beautiful daughter.

Even very recently, my mother compliments me in photos I take with Little Bun.

She told me the other day she couldn’t even recognize how beautiful I was, I looked like a movie star.

She isn’t the type to lie at all either. When she thinks I look tired, older, and that my skin is aging, she tells me in an alarmed fashion: Please take care of yourself! So many bags under your eyes!

Still have a burning question?

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I have that book on my shelf for a long time. I’ll have to read it this year but I have to finish first the “Walden.”
