Greetings, I’m Kay! I’m a late 20 something focusing on growing wealth, saving money, and investing in my future.
I went from paying off $23k in student loan debt, to maxing out retirement accounts and upping my monthly savings rate. All while living in an expensive city. Time is my most precious asset and I want a future where I can enjoy as much of it on my own terms as I can. I feel that saving and investing aggressively will get me there.
More About Me
I’ve been admiring the FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) community from afar for the last 3.5 years. All while being on a financial journey of my own.
I started making minimum payments on my student loans but soon decided that debt was an emergency. Rapidly, I began to pay down my loans.
Once my loans were kicked to the curb, I turned my focus to maxing out my retirement accounts. Then to my percent of pre tax savings.
I started travel hacking to keep my costs low and still see the world.
I did all of this while living in a high cost of living city, Seattle.
You can’t change your financial situation overnight, but little habits build up and can cause big changes.
I hope my journey will inspire and entertain. Maybe even let others commiserate about their own financial path. Feel free to say hi!
