My 2019 Financial Goals – May Update

Here we are for the May Update of my Financial Goals!

The fifth month of 2019 is over and as you probably know at the beginning of the month I like sharing with you the progress of my Financial Goals. If you want to read the April update, you can find it here. I suggest you to read the previous updates in order to understand my progress in each goal.

If you’ve read my last Passive Income Report you may know that May had been a great month for me. Actually, my best month ever from this point of view. I doubled for the first time my goal of achieving a monthly Passive Income of at least 100 EUR.

But now, check out my Financial Goals progress!

#1 – Reach a 7500 EUR P2P lending portfolio 

4100 / 7500 (54.67%)

In May I did not invest money on P2P Lending or Real Estate crowdfunding platforms. I’m still saving money for my first investment on ETFs. For the moment I limit myself to reinvesting the earnings.

My P2P lending portfolio is still stable at 4100 EUR. You can check the composition of my portoflio whenever you want on the page My Investment Portfolio.

#2 – Earn 1000 EUR of Passive Income 

708.99 / 1000 (70.90%)

As I said before, in May I earned 201,92 EUR of Passive Income. If I add them to the previous total I obtain the incredible (for me) amount of 708,99 EUR of Passive Income in the first five months of 2019. That’s a fantastic pace for me. Wow!

If I can keep this pace in the coming months I will reach this goal within 2 months. That would be absolutely awesome!

#3 – Have 10 different firms in my stock dividend portfolio 

2 / 10 (20.00%)

The same as April. No new stocks in my portfolio (and no dividends). Sorry guys!

Now I’m obsessed with ETFs, and when I have an obsession I can’t see anything else.

If you have any advices about which ETFs I should buy, let me know in the comments! I always appreciate your interaction.

#4 – 15 different cash flow sources 

11 / 15 (73.33%)

The latest sources I added were eToro and Lenndy in March. From them on I’m stable with the same sources. My thought is always the same: I think that before trying new platforms I should increase the balance of my current platforms. That’s why I’ll dedicate next months to adding money on the platforms I’m already using.

#5 – Read 5 financial books

2 / 5

During May I read again the most important chapters of “Zero To One”, a book written by one of the Paypal’s founders. I really appreciated it, because it gave me a lot of motivation. It tries to motivate us to do the first step of the path that will lead us to achieve our goals.

Every now and then I need to read something similar to this this book, because I really want to stay always motivated. This is a very important aspect in order to achieve goals.

To Buy the Book: Amazon IT [16 EUR]  (Link)  –  Amazon US [$19] (Link)

Now I’m currently reading two books, but they’re not financial books.

#6 – Increase my Net Worth by 20%

I’m on the right track to achieve this goal. In the March update I wrote that after the first 3 months of 2019 my Net Worth has grown by 8.35%. I’ll update this progress at the end of June.

These are the May progress of my Financial Goals.
