Goal Update: End of August 2015

At the end of each month, I post an update of my goals, including a brief discussion of any notable events that might have occurred during the month. The latest month's figures can always be found under the Featured menu in the menu bar at the top of the blog.

Last updated: End of August, 2015
Current value: $15,148
Change from last month: -$606
Percent of Goal:  13.93%

Note that the funds in this account are invested in stock, so there will be fluctuations in value that are outside my control. I never withdraw money from this account, so any dips are purely due to stock price changes.

Events Of Note Last Month:

I made it through the big stock market drop at the end of the month fairly well. Realty Income stock wasn't really adversely affected. I think it dropped about $1 per share and quickly recovered, although it's down a bit overall for the month - hence the drop in value of my account from last month. I'm still above the $15,000 level, even though I did not add any income from my online courses sales this month. As I mentioned last time, I sent this month's course payments to the IRS as an estimated tax payment. I did reach a milestone for my courses this month however: I hit $5,000 in lifetime sales!

I received $8.15 from my online book sales, including what I think is my first sale in Canada.

Nothing much else of note happened this month.
