"My DH and I also hit the net worth = income goal at 27 (we're 29 now)"

I never thought of it this way. I guess my net worth = my income last year when I was 25.

I just turned 26 last month. I started saving into my IRA since I was 19 at about $166 - $200 a month. I bought my first house when I was 23, and did improvements like finished the basement and landscaping without hiring contractors for even higher equity.

I guess I can thank my parents for putting in the idea of how important putting investments into action was for me.
