Portfolio update October 2019

Hello and welcome, here is my portfolio update October 2019.

October had a pretty slow start, just like my e-shop sales. But everything worked out and looking back at the results, it was pretty solid month. 
Sadly the blog stopped growing, no records this time. It had to happen, I saw it coming, but it still hurts. Hence, both the referral side hustle income and viewership numbers took a small dip, but nothing to worry about. I’m still pleased with the results.

Anyways, enough of words. Let’s dive right in.

This “Fur Processing company” project at Crowdestor’s platform was probably the most discussed topic in October. Interest rate was at enormous 26%.

What’s your opinion about it? Would you invest into something like that? Leave it in the comment section below.

Let’s dive deeper into the numbers

In October I invested another 370€ to a B2P loan and Estateguru finally opened secondary market!

My total passive income from investments from January 2018 to October 2019:

Total passive income from investments Financefreedom.eu


Total of 5000 euros invested in Mintos and the platform generated me a total of 53,39€ of interests.
I don’t know if it’s a thing now, but my Mintos account is STILL encountering heavy cashdrag. I do not want to lower the interest rate any lower, it is already at 11.2%.

If things don’t improve, I guess I have to withdraw money from Mintos.

In October I earned a total of 6,05€ of interest in Envestio.

Invested the rest of my free to use balance into 2 different projects. Spare parts wholesale company financing-part 1 and Development of a large dolomite deposit-tier 4.
Both have pretty high interest rates at 17,5% and 18,5%. If I would withdraw money from Mintos, Envestio would be one of the alternatives for sure.

In October Estateguru released a feature called Secondary market, which provides an option for extra liquidity and an early exit.

My Estateguru accounts interests income in October 2019: 13,4€.
Still no action on the private account, where I have 111,82€ invested. 2 of the loans I have invested in are full bullet loans, which means no interest nor principal payouts until the date is due.

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€!

My company’s Omaraha account is having same difficulties like my Mintos account, cashdrag … At the end of October, there was something like 150 to 200 euros available.
Even though the numbers are way smaller than in Mintos, it’s still a worrying sign. On the plus side Omaraha has almost double the interest rate, investment terms are at 21.7%. Mintos auto invest is at 11.2%.

Omaraha’s company account interests 88,59€ and loss from sold loans 13,07€. Which means the profit was 75,54€.

Under private account there was a total of 5,96€ of profit, which means a total of 81,48€ of profit from Omaraha.

EXIT from Twino still continues. As I’ve mentioned before, I will exit with my companies accounts, but will still be investing with my private account. So you should be expecting the Twino income to drop down close to 1€ a month.

A year has passed since my initial investment into UpSteam and the value has risen from 340€ to 1513€.

Side hustles

In October I 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 of some of you have waited for!

In October the blog and affiliate comissions generated 499,41€. I had a hunch that those good months won’t last forever and the income will take a dip. So overall I am still very pleased with the results, because it’s still the 4th best blog income ever. 

My blog’s main reason is to log my own investments and share/receive information with all of you. But if you wish to create an account and invest on the same platforms as I. Check the referral links throughout my blog which usually provide bonuses. Remember, investing is marathon not a sprint, every single cent counts! Blog income in euros october 2019 More detailed payout from TargetCircle: TargetCircle sidehustle, earning with blog affiliate links, october 2019 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.

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

Octobers’s total revenue: 598,89€.

Shipping costs: 70,9€.

Total profit from sales: 237,49€.

Why is “shipping cost” numbers different from the picture’s “charged for shipping”?
It is because I offer free shipping, if the shopping cart is worth more than 30€, that’s why the number is different from the photo displayed below. 

Average gross daily sales were 19,32€ and a total number of 27 orders were placed in October.
The beginning of October was very slow, no orders for 6 days and then it spiked.

October’s goal was to maintain 500€ revenue and earn ~200€ of profit, which was accomplished.
My goal for October was to maintain the 500€ revenue line and earn ~200€ of profit. 

For November I am hoping to reach over 600€ revenue and 250€ profit.

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.

    1. Hey! As the e-shop is a niche shop, I can’t really discuss about it in lenght, all I can do is show the stats and how the shop is performing.
      I guess the bumps in the traffic are due to the fact that I have posted my portfolio updates into several FB groups, Reddit and forums etc.
      Organic traffic is slowly but surely increasing. I really hope that in the future most of the traffic would be from Organic sources.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this information.
    I already have accounts in a couple of p2p and re companies, but you made me discover Funderbeam and reinvest24.
    I will open accounts using your links.

    1. Hey Elmar,
      I’ve used regular SEO tips for the Google to rank my blog and get organic viewers from there. Also I’m guest posting as often as I can, posting in forums, reddit and Facebook groups etc.
      Doing all of those things and some more have boosted my viewership to the level it is today.
