We ended the year in style this year. 2021 flew by way too fast and it was a roller coaster ride for sure. The biggest changes probably happened to our youngest son.
Seth in 2021 got his Drivers Permit back in June and drove a car on the road for the first time. He went camping for the first time with his girlfriend’s family. Then on Seth’s 16th Birthday in December he went and took his Drivers Test and Passed. He got his Drivers License. Then he applied to five different companies looking for work. He got the sorry letter from the first two but got hired by the third place for his first ever job. Then when in Minnesota he got to drive a car on snow and ice for the first time. Then he got to go Tubing with Family at Buck hill in Minnesota for the first time. Plus, he had many more first. As you can see Seth had quite a year.
Darlene had a busy year also with five trips to Minnesota this year. The best trip for Darlene was probably spending Christmas in Minnesota with family, it was the first time in Minnesota for Christmas since 2013. Her folks stayed with us for three months over the winter months. She left her job and went to another company. But when she found out Insurance was going to be about 50% of her take home pay, she decided to go back to her old company, she had a crazy busy year with life and work for sure.
Logan also had a busy year. He left one job for another. He also finished up College on Line and got a call from the Navy asking him if he wanted to give the Navy a try again. So, he leaves in two weeks for the Navy as I am writing this blog. I hope he runs with this opportunity and makes the best of it. If he likes it, he could do thirty years in the Navy and Invest most of his money for Retirement. He also started dabbling into Digital Currency Investments this year.
This year my big change was a golf swing change that has helped me a lot with my golf game confidence. I didn’t play as many golf rounds as I have in the past but had fun. The time I wasn’t golfing I was busy with the family and getting our boys prepared for life. I figure 2022 I will have more time to keep improving my golf game.
Our family business keeps growing slowly. We continued to make Podcast Episodes and blogs. We also Invested more into Digital Currency this year and bought 9 Digital Real Estate Properties. We hope for even more growth in 2022.

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”. By Albert Einstein. I would also say the definition of insanity is believing you can live a financial responsible life without tracking how you are doing, having a budget and goals. I like following others who track their finances to compare our also. I enjoy helping people with their finances and goals.
We want to give our boys the best chance to have their money last them thru their retirement years and have them reach their Financial Freedom goals. They need to live somewhat with a frugal mindset and spend less than they make so they can Invest towards their Financial Freedom goals. The boys will need to maybe put off Net Flix or buying a New Video game or going to the movies until they are on the path to Financial Freedom.
