Expected Savings Rate 2019
Since my first pay-check in 2010, I have followed a set of simple rules, that I only changed at the beginning of 2018.
- Save upfront 1/10 of income in a separate account.
- Use 2/10 of income to pay the existing debt (you can read about my mistakes here).
- Use 7/10 of income for all necessary living expenses.
This strategy lead to the realization that I was going nowhere.
All my energy and commitment is on making my startup successful, and with the success of the company, financial freedom will not be an issue… however, I wanted to improve my capacity to generate passive income.
I decided to start reading about investment opportunities and personal finances. You can read a basic summary of my learnings here.
In January 2018, I decided to pay down my debt and start saving a fixed amount, always upfront at the beginning of the month, restricting my spending culture.
I started learning about diversification, peer-to-peer lending platforms, gold as a wealth reserve in situations of financial crisis and cryptocurrencies as a speculative investment. The main idea is to avoid past mistakes and maximize returns on savings. That was the moment I decided to open my portfolio accounts.
