The LTNE Report -- September 2014

Here are the highlights from this month:

Our net worth continues to grow, though those following the markets know that this month has been tough.

After much soul-searching, Jen has decided to undergo a job change-- this will either result in her returning to working at home (and saying goodbye to that secondary income!) or she will move to a new position.  We should know soon, but we're prepared for either and both are deliberate and intentional courses of action.  As such, I'll be temporarily adjusting our monthly investments from $5,000 each month to $2,500, until this is resolved!

Our net passive income continues to be negative due to the difference between our rent earned on our rental home and its mortgage.  We are 16 months away from our break-even point on that rental home mortgage (all things staying the same, the value of the house will then equal our principal-- the decline in the housing market has killed us with this!).  

Sources of passive income this month included:

Amazon affiliate income from your Amazon purchases through our site!  Thanks!

USAA credit card leads (Our USAA AMEX card is our primary cash rewards credit card).

Our cash rewards cards generated a total of $201.96 in passive income this month!

We generated a total of $194.57 in interest income from our Prosper and Lending Club P2P lending accounts.

The real value of this month was that much of our future has been clarified-- I now know that certain opportunities that I thought might exist for us won't actually materialize.  Though this seems to be a bad thing, it really isn't, as it provides clarity and will allow us to begin to craft next chapters with more fidelity.  (One thing that I have learned, though, is that unexpected things happen; the key is to bend probability curves your way and see what happens!).

Enjoy your October, friends!  I appreciate your stopping by!
