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.

    Thanks for the link. That family of gardeners is doing something really cool. Canada doesn’t have the nice sunny weather that they get in California but I’m sure it’s still doable up here. Growing your own food is one of the best ways to make the environment a greener place. 😀

      I’m really considering it once we move to a permanent place and I can build those things on my balcony.

    The part prompting me to comment is the note about being quiet when negotiating compensation. I spent many years negotiating contracts as assistant general counsel for a tech company. People are generally uncomfortable with silence and will do anything to avoid it, such as filling up silence with words. Words that usually operate to hang the person speaking and/or give me something I can use to work in my favor. My favorite negotiation tactic was the mute button on the speakerphone. Worked all the time.

      YES!!! But in person, it’s just sitting there calmly.. waiting.
