Cash Flow

Our monthly Cash Flow report. See how we are doing in the cash flow department. When I quit my day job, we’ll be living paycheck to paycheck for a while. I have been keeping track of the cash flow for over a year and we have been mostly successful in making one paycheck work.


You can also go through all the articles on Retire By 40. It’s a bit of mess though. I’d start with the latest and then go backward. Many of the early articles weren’t that great.

The following two tabs change content below.
Joe started Retire by 40 in 2010 to figure out how to retire early. He spent 16 years working in computer design and enjoyed the technical work immensely. However, he hated the corporate BS. He left his engineering career behind to become a stay-at-home dad/blogger at 38. At Retire by 40, Joe focuses on financial independence, early retirement, investing, saving, and passive income.

For 2018, Joe plans to diversify his passive income by investing in US heartland real estate through RealtyShares. He has 3 rental units in Portland and he believes the local market is getting overpriced.

Joe highly recommends Personal Capital for DIY investors. He logs on to Personal Capital almost daily to check his cash flow and net worth. They have many useful tools that will help every investor analyze their portfolio and plan for retirement.
