Portfolio update November 2019


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.

Mintos

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?

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 use my referral link – click here –.

Omaraha

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€.

#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’.

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.

Finance Freedom

Hi! My name is Lukas, I am in my mid 20’s, a simple dude from Estonia, who started investing at 2014. 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.

  1. Congrats on another successful month!
    I can see that some of your investments are listed as private and some as a company
    As I also live in Estonia (not an Estonian tho), I was wondering about the reason you made a company. Does it have any benefits? Is it easier to tax? I’d love to read more about that in a post or a comment

    1. Hey Invest Hero,

      Thank you for the kind words.
      When I started investing I was making my first investments under personal accounts, hence the privately listed columns. But then I started generating money with my companies and decided to start investing under my company accounts.
      It most definitely has bigger positive side, especially the part where you can postpone income taxes until you pay dividends. So you can keep the money in for year and years and not pay the tax until you want to make a payout.
      But if you invest under your private account, you have to pay 20% in taxes every year of the profit you make.
      And now, if the compound interest works it’s magic, the difference is quite clear, why it is better to invest under a company rather than under your private account.
      Also, I suggest you to take at Kristi’s blog article, in where she explains the differences between investing as a private person and a company (in estonian though, you might want to use Google translation) – https://kristiinvesteerib.ee/eraisikuna-investeerimine-vs-ettevotte-alt-investeerimine/
