Having discussed our goals with my husband, I think I'm finally ready to put them down on paper (data).
And in the end, it seems best to start simple (if a little high in the aim).
1) 1% growth per month, with the goal being 12% growth this year.
That's it. It's going to be a challenge given how much of our money is conservatively held in high yield savings accounts or CDs, but I think a challenge is just what we need to clarify our goals and help us push our conservative boundaries.
More calculations to come on what it will take to make it happen. Onwards and upwards!
