As I mentioned here, I am participating in a series of posts called, “Naked with Cash” at a popular blog called

It’s been really interesting.  Participants in the series update their net worth monthly, and discuss their current financial activity, concerns and success.  I find these kinds of “real” stories to be helpful – even if a particular situation is not exactly the same as yours; it is helpful to have a reference for what other people are doing.  (I always find this helpful regarding parenting concerns as well).

There are a total of seven participants in the series, at different life stages and levels of net worth.  I am commenting on two in particular:

  1. Calvin lives is in his early 40s and lives in NJ.  He is recently divorced and has a teenager.  He earns a good income, but has a lot of debt.
  2. Kathleen is single and lives in Portland.  She is almost debt-free and planning to buy  bought a condo this year.

Both are extremely motivated and have made impressive progress on their financial goals.  It’s great to see how much things can change in just six months!
