I ended up scrapping the sofi account in favor of some Fidelity mutual funds. My 401k is through Fidelity so I figured I would keep it all together. I made small investments in large growth, mid cap and total bonds funds for now. Only invested a little to get my feet wet. I noticed back in 2013 I invested a small portion of my 401k into a real estate fund. Totally forgot about and come 2021 that real estate fund exploded.
Somewhat related to investing, I leased a Chevy Trax in 2019 right before the pandemic as a commuter car. The pandemic hit and I've worked from ever since and the car has remained parked with low miles Now with this chip shortage, I have dealers fighting with each other to buy my Trax. I have offers upwards of $5,000 over the lease payoff. They are literally offering more than what I paid for it new. Who would have thought a Chevy Trax would have appreciated in value?
