Hey everybody! Oh wow, it’s December already. We’re within the house stretch now. This yr, we’re having a low-key vacation season. We spent Thanksgiving with associates then I flew to Thailand to see my dad and mom. Mrs. RB40 and Junior will go see her household for Christmas. This yr is so low-key, we didn’t even trouble placing up the Christmas tree. Oh properly. Subsequent yr, we’ll have a greater household Christmas.
On the private finance facet, issues have been good in November. Inflation appears to be moderating and the inventory market carried out properly. Consequently, our internet price recovered a bit. I’m getting extra optimistic about 2023. We’d get right into a recession, however I believe our investments will do fairly properly by the top of 2023.
Our money move for November didn’t look nice, however it’s nonetheless good for the yr. Truly, I can’t wait to do the year-end wrap and see the way it all works out. We spent more cash than regular this yr on account of journey and surprising bills, however our investments additionally generate good earnings. It ought to all work out okay.
In the present day, I’ll share how I’m doing on my New 12 months objectives. Then, I’ll present you our month-to-month money move. Listed here are the main points.
Right here is my 2022 objective spreadsheet. It really works rather well. Strive it out for those who can’t sustain along with your New 12 months objectives. The secret is to go over the spreadsheet a minimum of as soon as a month to trace your progress. That approach, you’ll be able to see which objectives want additional consideration.
I’m not doing so properly on my objectives this yr. The progress could be very uneven. I suppose subsequent yr I’ll should set higher objectives.
- Actual Property Crowdfunding $200,000. I invested in an condominium renovation in North Carolina so we’re slowly getting there. Nowadays, the tasks on CrowdStreet end their funding section in a short time. Many buyers are taking cash off the inventory market to diversify. Actual property is doing a lot better than the inventory market this yr. It’s a good way to generate passive earnings.
- FI Ratio > 110%. That is my important objective for 2022. The FI ratio is passive earnings divided by expense. To date, our FI ratio is 128%. That is fairly good.
- Promote rental apartment. Our tenant determined to remain for an additional yr. He’s an amazing tenant so I’m okay with it. The value isn’t nice in that space anyway. Portland remains to be battling lots of points. Anyway, this objective bought a fail.
- Speculate crypto $10,000. I bought off my Crypto in November. The craziness is just too scary for me. All in all, I misplaced about $1,000. I would get again in subsequent yr.
Well being Targets
- I bought a brand new health tracker! Subsequent yr, I’ll set an achievable month-to-month step objective.
- Journey 180 days – I spent 162 days touring this yr and I’m exhausted. We spent the entire summer season on the street whereas Mrs. RB40 was on a sabbatical. She may retire if she desires, however she is again at work.
- 1,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel. Presently, we have now 1,445 subscribers on our YouTube channel. I don’t suppose I’m lower out to be a YouTuber. I simply don’t have the character for it. However we gained some subscribers this yr so I met my objective.
- Sizzling air balloon experience, zipline, and Disneyland. Horrible. We didn’t do any of those actions in 2022. I’ll attempt to get a minimum of 2 out of three subsequent yr.
- Happiness > 8. My happiness degree recovered a bit in November. We had a great month and no extra surprises. I’m additionally joyful to see my mother.
Internet Price (-10.3% YTD)
Wow, the inventory market did fairly properly in November! Our internet price recovered fairly a bit. We’d get right into a recession in 2023, but it surely looks like the market is poised to make a turnaround. There can be extra volatility, however I’m optimistic we’ll see a brand new excessive by the top of subsequent yr.
I’ve been monitoring our internet price since 2006. It is rather motivating to see the progress. The ability of compounding is unbelievable. Our internet price normally will increase greater than we earn nearly yearly. Nevertheless, 2022 is popping out to be a horrible yr. The inventory market crashed and dragged our internet price down considerably. We diversified with actual property and different holdings so our portfolio is a little more steady than the inventory market. The lower in our internet price isn’t enjoyable, however we’ll proceed to speculate for the longer term.
***Essential*** My greatest recommendation is to remain the course. Don’t cease investing. It’s good to preserve investing when the inventory market is down. Finally, the inventory market will get better and you’ll do very properly so long as you retain investing by way of the downturn.

Grilled rooster, papaya salad, and sticky rice for about $4. The grilled rooster was so smokey and tender. Thai eating places within the US don’t make something this scrumptious.
Fried noodles with rooster and egg for $1.50. Inflation is excessive in Thailand, however avenue meals remains to be very reasonably priced.
