People don’t Learn Finance; They Learn How to be a Slave

Posted on May 20th, 2017.

On my way to $1 000 000

Posted on May 9th, 2017.

As I wrote in my previous post, I’ve decided to invest 33% of my income instead of 10% to reach my long term goal of $1 000 000 in equity. I changed it from 10% to 33% since I do not need more than 67% to pay for my mortgage and living expenses. My first investment (10 000 NOK = 1 200 USD) was in the Corporate Bond Fund...
