I am fairly young, 30, and I have just reached the 6 figure income mark. This is new for me, and I want to put my money in the right placed - where it will grow! I have no credit card debt at all, I have a house that I rent out (rental income is minimal), I have an emergency fund which has $4500 in it, I have $4500 money stocked away in a diversified portfolio (betterment.com) which I contribute 500 a month towards, I also contribute to my retirement fund though my job and I have my own IRA (but I put only 25 dollars a month in) - almost pointless to have that but I am planning to increase that. I have 13k of student loan debt from Sallie Mae and 29k student loan debt from HESC.
I am just now at a place where I can continue to grow my worth, investments, etc. My question is what should I tackle first or in what order? Student loan debt, funding my portfolio, then retirement accounts? Build up my emergency fund, travel and then worry about student loan debt last.
I do have a Nissan 350z with a car loan but I am selling that tomorrow, so I will even be car loan free! I now drive a used Infiniti with no car loan.
