Great news and even greater plans!

I received my offer this afternoon. :-D

I tentatively accepted the position because I wanted to fully understand what exactly was on the table. I was able to get off work an hour early and headed to the HR office. I only had to renegotiate a couple of items. Once I was satisfied with everything I accepted the position. My new position is higher than what I applied for and I also received a 3% pay increase. I signed my offer letter, took my benefits package, and left that office one happy lady.

My new salary, which will be a little over $75,000 per year, opens new doors and opportunites and offers a shorter and better paved route to those goals I have set for myself. Here is a list of some of those new/revised goals:

  • - I will be going for my MBA come this spring.

  • - I will be credit card debt free before the year is over.

  • - I will be a home-owner within the next year.

  • - I will have my personal loan paid off before the end of 2009.

My detailed plans on achieving each and every goal is to come. It will be very aggresive so I am not sure on my savings goal. I want at least a month's of bills to be there at all times, which equals to approximately $2500. Not much of a safety net but it's something.

Anyways, once I get a more detailed plan laid out I'll post it on here.

I really don't want to go back over the last 3 months to create financial reports. I KNOW its going to be time consuming and just pure terror. I may just do one for August and call it a day. Start off fresh for this month.
