So What The F*** Happen This Month

Big things happen this month.

Both good and bad.

I need to reevaluate on how I’m going to write about it.

But I will write about it, that is for sure!

So stay tuned for some juicy blog posts the coming period.

Not Leveraging

One of the (well maybe two) things that happen to me this month made me stop leveraging. Not that I will ever do it in the nearest future. But as things are right now, I will not be doing it.

What I’m going to do is deleverage a little bit. Not that I’m going to pay off my debts. But I will keep the amount on 200.000 DKK (30.000 $) that I have now. And then invest regular in my stocks. By doing that. My stock allocation should increase a bit each month (if the market stays >0%) which means that my 200.000 DKK will be smaller compared to my stock allocation.

I will tell you why I’m doing that in later blog post.

The First 100.000 $ is a Bitch

Believe it or not.

That is a quote from the famous Charlie Munger. He said it in the book Charlie Munger: The Complete investor.

This month I managed to cross that line.

Yes – I still have some debt. But the debt that I have should be working for me, and not against. I’m still young, and that kind of debt is peanuts against to what I can earn in the nearest future.

And statistics says that if I just leave for a long enough time, it will benefit me.

The first $100,000 is a bitch, but you gotta do it. I don’t care what you have to do—if it means walking everywhere and not eating anything that wasn’t purchased with a coupon, find a way to get your hands on $100,000. After that, you can ease off the gas a little bit.

CPH FIRE MEETUP

I can feel as the date come closer, the more nervous/excited I get.

But it is a feeling I’m completely familiar with, because of my rowing.
