Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have 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 have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. 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 suppose? I mean, I get the point of this… but we’re not islands. It’s not like Chicago could have anywhere near the production it does without shipping things over to New York, or helping to move California passengers from across the country.

    But yes… we make a lot of stuff…

    I guess Philly is part of New York. Very interesting and thought provoking infographic. Never thought we would be like Austria; just kidding.
