Millionaire Journey Update

VTSAX Millionaire Journey #10: $100,195.84

I started Beyond Debt nearly 5 years ago. By the end of 2013 my website made a total of $85.72. That was enough to buy a few cups of New York City coffee at the time and not something to brag about.

Today, my site is in the 5 figure mark and growing daily. My website traffic and blog posts are stronger than ever.

Thankfully, Beyond Debt is allowing me the freedom to work from home and be selective of the jobs I take as a photographer and the positions I take as a trader.

Then in the beginning of 2017 I decided to start blogging about a more financially responsible millionaire journey. I use the word financially responsible because I took some losses and made some big mistakes when I started trading more aggressively in 2014.

Back then my website wasn’t producing enough financially for me to fall back on and my photography business was still growing.

Then at the beginning of 2017 I felt the need to make certain changes to my blog and my trading that were (hopefully) going to generate more income.

Thankfully I did because today I am happy to announce that I crossed the 6 figure mark with help from the various income producing streams I have: Blogging, Trading, and Photography.

Don’t worry I am going to be writing an in depth and detailed article on how to start blogging while pursuing a trading journey so that you too can possibly increase your financial freedom.

Here are the numbers.

I was able to add in $3,142.74 to my VTSAX position for the ending month of October. That number is a combination of photography, blogging income, trading, dividends, capital gains and option money.

There is now a $10,235.58 investment return since January 10th 2017.

To wrap things up my Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund total is now $100,195.84 .

Until next month.
