I'd echo both parts. Many congratulations to you on your achievement!

But, as they say, 'all work and no play...' You might find yourself being happier if you let off the throttle a bit now that you've achieved that milestone. And even if/when your net asset figure drops a bit, you still have quite a sizable nest egg

Well like others have said, markets brought me back down, and up again, so I have now reached the 1M mark for the second time already

This is awesome to read

I can't seem to find an investor even right now. I'm struggling hard and harder not having my money work for me.
At 33 you are killing it.

It was pretty easy to make the $1 million mark last year...lots and lots of opportunities...

One of my goals from last year was to get another $ million and then this year try to compliment that with enough that I could draw out the $1 million and pay all the taxes owed so I would have a $ million tax free in the bank...

I missed the $ million by $7K, not so bad, but still off target... this year is proving to be a little more of a challenge... the markets are in a strange flux right now...

a lesson learned - this is more like a job than a real job... you have to watch the pre markets, the daily market and the after markets all day long and every day.. sometimes even on the weekends... it has taken many many hours to make this work... but it is doable..
