Bondora 

In June 2018, I decided to exit from Bondora. A year has gone by and I don’t even miss Bondora! It was the first platform I started investing in with just 10.1€ being the first deposit. Crazy right? It has served me well, even though I made lots of rookie mistakes, I am exiting with positive vibes. Farewell Bondora!

Exited from Bondora with a loss of 65,57€!

I do not recommend investing at Bondora, but if you still want to, be sure to read my Bondora review first!

Envestio

As we all know, Kuetzal announced it’s shutting down on January 12th 2020. But just few days later on January 16th 2020, Envestio sent out a press release about “Envestio reacts to Kuetzal panic”. And as we again all already know, all of that was just BS. Envestio is also down and a scam just like Kuetzal was.

My Envestio “interest income” in euros

As most or maybe even all of the projects at Envestio might’ve been fake, I don’t think that it’s wise for me to even consider “interest income” from the previous projects and just write off my initial investment of 500€.

Side hustles

#1 Blog income: TargetCircle/CircleWise and Bonusway

In June 2020, I decided to put the blog income from affiliate/referral system and other side hustles incoome into the same graph, hence the numbers are a bit bigger now. This is the part where it gets interesting.

In May the blog generated 42,64€;
Other side hustles generated: 390,08€;
Total income from side hustles + blog: 432,72€.

More detailed payout from TargetCircle/CircleWise:

TargetCircle blog income report may 2021

I display two different incomes under the blog income. One is referral income from TargetCircle and the other one is affiliate income from Bonusway. Bonusway – I use it to save money while e-shopping or booking ONLINE. Read more at https://financefreedom.eu/save-money-when-e-shopping-or-booking-online/ A really simple way to save up money, especially on housing and from them random orders on AliExpress … (You know what I mean, we’ve all done it!) Considering this blog is mostly dedicated to finance and logging my pursuit on becoming financially free, the TargetCircle referral links usually earn me a lot more than Bonusway affiliate links or any other side hustle income.

Finance Freedom

Hi! My name is Lukas, I am in my mid 20’s and I am an engineer from Estonia. I started investing at 2014, so I have been investing for over 6 years. In addition, I was 20 years old, when I started my first company and just 21 years of age, when I made my first investments. I was hooked instantly! In this blog I will be documenting my journey towards financial freedom.
