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€.

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!

In August the blog and referral comissions generated 6,57€;
Other side hustles generated: 444,09€;
Total income from side hustles: 450,66€.Blog and side hustle income in euros august 2020

More detailed payout from TargetCircle/CircleWise:

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.

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.
