Monthly Income Report – November 2015

Every month, I publish a report of the business & investment income I received during the previous month. I publish these reports to show you what you can expect with an online business & unconventional investments, and I also publish them to keep the motivation to work hard & to grow this number month after month.

In every report, you will find out the details about all the business income I received during the month, all the business expenses, and also all the income I received from investments during the month.

Comment About the Report

Let’s now make the total and add my business & investment revenues:

Total income for November 2015: 5226 € (+58%)

This was a much better month than October, as my business really jumped in activity. This can be explained by the launch of new products recently, and I intended to launch more in the future. Gumroad is really becoming my platform of choice to sell digital content, like eBooks and videos, and I definitely plan to develop this side in the future.

My investment income slowed down a bit this month, mainly due to the fact that my Bitcoin investments were doing much worse than compared to the previous month. However, I plan to recover from that in the coming months.

Remember that I had something big coming up? Well, I am in the process of selling the last piece of ‘traditional’ real estate that I own, and I plan to reinvest all the gains in my portfolio at a much higher yield that this flat was making.

Note that you can also visit my websites to learn more my investments. I post frequently on websites dedicated to my investments using dividend growth investing, Peer-to-Peer lendingcrowdfunded real estate, and Bitcoin.

As usual, I also updated my investment portfolio page to reflect the changes during the month. What about you? Did you have a good month with your online business and/or your investments?
