So, one of my goals for the year, financially, is to make 10% of my salary again through other things. This includes any bonuses or raises I earn, as well as investment income and side work. Well, I just found out my bonus for the year- not too shabby (I'm going to invest every penny). It was basically half a paycheck. Tack that on with my employer's dollar-for-dollar match on my 401K (up to 6%) and a rough estimate of my interest income- I'm well on track to meet that goal.
