In May of 2011, after 5 years of endless turmoil, I graduated from college. I was the first person in my family to do this. It was a proud moment.
One month later, I drove 1,500 miles and started my new life in New York City.
As of today (3/1/13) I have spent $23,550 in rent. RENT!!! And trust me, I live a frugal lifestyle. NYC just happens to be one of the most expensive cities in the world.
That’s why I’m publicly announcing a huge financial and personal goal: Within 12 months, I’m going to live rent free in NYC.
How do I plan to do that? Buy purchasing a multi family home via an FHA loan and renting out the other units.
I’m currently working two jobs as an interavtive designer (one is full time and one is part time) and I am actively freelancing.
Just a little more about me…I’m also a newlywed. I got married in September of 2012.
Is this ambitious? You betcha’.
Is this crazy? Possibly.
Will I actually accomplish this in 12months? Hopefully. But if I miss my deadline…well, you know what they say:
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.
