Hello and welcome, here is my portfolio update November 2019.
Overall November was a terrific month.
New opportunities and dramas, which I will talk in the future, and I had the time to take close to 2 weeks off just for myself.
Also, e-shop and the blog are still generating value, but as I took the 2 weeks off, they both suffered quite a bit. Try to ship something out 2 weeks later than it should be, I can guarantee you my clients were not happy about that, eventhough they all were notified before that.
Anyways, enough of words, let’s get cracking!

Let’s dive deeper into the numbers
In November I invested another 370€ to a B2P loan. The average passive income from investments has been steady between 220 and 240 a month, which is close to 2.5 times average Estonian salary these days. So overall I can’t complain. But there is still a lot of improvements do be done in the future.
Total of 5000 euros invested in Mintos and the platform generated me a total of 48,34€ of interests.
Still encoutering heavy cashdrag @ Mintos. I really don’t want to lower the interest rates … By the end of November, I had close to 1800€ just laying around on the account. What should I do with it?
In November I earned a total of 7,95€ of interest in Envestio, which translates to 2nd best month since the start.
Also, Envestio published 4 projects in November, which isn’t something spectacular, but it’s something.
Sign up to Envestio through my referral link, you will get a 5€ bonus when you deposit at least 100€. In addition, you will also get a 0,5% cash back on all your investments the first 270 days. That’s 9 full months!
My Estateguru accounts interests income in November 2019: 15,29€.
And finally some action on the private account! Only waited for 11 months. New personal account interest income is now at 4.07€.
Crowdestate produced me an income of 1.55€.
In November I also published Crowdesate review. Be sure to check it out and leave a comment – https://financefreedom.eu/crowdestate-review/
Nothing much to add, the business to peers loan have been going well and the interests keep on coming!
Apartment #2 is now SOLD, selling date was in the middle of September 2019.
Total investment 37 450€.
Property #2 sold for a price 41 300€ – cost = 40738€.

Apartment #1 Income 16,05€. So far no problems with the apartment nor the rent payments. Overall a superb tenant!
Private real-estate Sold the private real-estate apartment.
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 use my referral link – click here –.
Just like in October, November had similar cashdrag probems. I decided to lower the interest 1%, but still the loans weren’t going out. Hence, I lowered them 1% even more, yet still nothing.
I guess I have to lower them even further to get some loans to invest in.
Total profit from Omaraha accounts were 61,37€.
The EXIT from Twino is close, I can feel it!
Perhaps in the beginning of December I can do it?!
In October 2018, I made a small investment of 340€ at Funderbeam into the company called UpSteam. As of November 2019, my shares are worth 1649€.
More than a year has passed since my initial investment into UpSteam and the value has risen from 340€ to 1649€.
Probably one of my best investments ever.

La Muu Syndicate

Shouldn’t be nothing to worry about as colder months get closer, ice cream sales go down.

29,03€ of loss at the P2P site Omaraha. Don’t get me started, once again a way too high loss from sold loans. I hope this isn’t a sign of the collapse …
In November, I also published 2 new Peer-to-peer platform reviews.
#1 Blog income: TargetCircle and Bonusway
In June I decided to put the blog income and affiliate comissions into the same graph, hence the numbers are a bit bigger now. This is the part I get as excited as you guys!
In November the blog and affiliate comissions generated 287,21€.
November took a fall that I knew was going to happen. Since I was taking close to 2 weeks off, I knew the blog would suffer and overall there shouldn’t be nothing to worry about.
As I am producing more quality content and the older posts get ranked, I should be ranking higher and higher. Atleast I hope so … I hope that December will be kind to me.
Still nothing close to the record, but I will keep on side hustlin’.
More detailed payout from TargetCircle: 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.
#2 E-shop income
Novembers’s total revenue: 564,25€.
Shipping costs: 42.00€.
Total profit from sales: 216,84€.
