Who am I?
My name is Ryan O’Donoghue and I write and edit the entirety of Spending Done Right. I am 25 years old and have been on the path to FI since approximately April of 2018. There have been numerous setbacks and I haven’t made much progress, but I have stopped the downward slide. So overall I’m happy with my progress so far! I do have a couple of goals that I want to accomplish however:
1. Have an emergency fund with $2,000 in it by December 2019
2. Make $1000 of passive income by January 2020
3. Either increase my income or acquire new side income worth $1000 a month by January 2020
4. Pay off all of my student loan debt (look above for the current total) by January 2023
5. Be worth $1,000,000 by February 2034 (my 40th birthday)
