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 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’ve had Maui Jim sunglasses for years. No buyers remorse! The company will repair them if they’re damaged. I love that!

      Wow. That is some customer service. I may consider them once my Persol’s go, I already have brown sunglasses.. don’t need another pair 🙂

    My clothing choices are ‘uniform’ in the sense that it’s ALWAYS pants + top. I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I don’t wear skirts as Im in a depot, and there’s little way to wear a skirt and be PPE/safe. So yeah, only really hot days will I break out a skirt, so it’s a handful of time in two years. Jackets/coats/topper are less of a requirement for a lot of the year, due to it being more temperate here in Aust. Still, interesting to read about Adina’s process.

    I once read an Antartica blogger – but it wasn’t about money! Just about the experience of being there etc

      Hmm. I guess I am always in Pants + Top + Topper for cold weather and Skirt + Top + Topper for warmer weather….
