Millionaire Journey Update

VTSAX Millionaire Journey #9: $95,456.14

Writing about a millionaire journey during all of this tragedy in the world seems like a very tacky idea. So, even though I will post the numbers at the end for administrative purposes I would like to talk about something much more important: making donations.

Hopefully you were able to donate in a meaningful way to you and those in need. I personally donated to 2 organizations that help many different victims but more specifically the victims of the horrible hurricanes that many people suffered through.

The Episcopal Relief & Development & Unidos Por Puerto Rico.

Both of these organizations are meaningful to me and so I am very confident that my contribution will help those in real need.

Anyway, WHAT THE F*** is going on in the world today?

Hurricanes, shootings, hatred, anger and many many other negative things that make me wonder where did we go wrong?

Ironically the stock market is at all time highs which is very scary thought.

Why is it scary?

Well, I remember a time when an event in the world would scare the market. Today nothing seems to scare it. Even the threat of nuclear war hasn’t been able to shake the market for long.

Before I wrap it up I wanted to mention that I am a featured actor in a movie with David Zayas (Dexter & Bloodline) and Alicia Renier (OITNB).

It premiered at the Urban World film festival in New York City. I wasn’t able to attend the festival but if you want to see me on the big screen look for Shine. It should be in theaters soon.

Here are the numbers.

I was able to add in $2,219.34 to my VTSAX position for the ending month of September. That number is a combination of photography, blogging income, trading, dividends, capital gains and option money.

There is now a $8,638.62 investment return since January 10th 2017.

To wrap things up my Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund total is now $95,456.14.

If you need to reach out to me for any reason please do so here.

Until next month.
