> I crossed zero net worth at age 25

I hope I can accomplish the same thing.

This was the harderst part, getting to zero net worth. I started deep in debt at 23 due to me and my DW's student loans. I started with my DW loans since they were from overseas, then moved on to car loans, all the while aggresively working to increase my salary. Doubling my salary in my first 4 years has been the key to my success so far.

I'm chugging away, on Feb 15th of last year, I had a net worth of approx -$19,887.60. On Feb 15th of this year I'm sitting at -$3,025.03. I turn 25 in late October.

It should be eaisily doable. But life happens, so I'm not guarenteeing anything.
