Take-aways from the Making Money Intensive training

Real Estate

On Saturday I attended the Money Making Intensive training organized by Wealth Dragons and even though I heard or read about many things the speakers mentioned today it was a valuable and inspiring day with many take-aways. I also believe that you need to be confronted with things until you know them and since I am still not financially free it seems that I haven’t learned my lessons yet. After today I am again one step closer to financial freedom though. And since we remember things best if we tell them on I would like to share some of the … Continue reading

Hello World!


It has been again way too long since I wrote my last blog post so it feels a bit like a fresh start now. That’s why I decided to call this post “Hello World!” since it is the default post title in WordPress when you set up a new blog. For me it is a bit over 3 years ago that I started this blog and even though many things have happened since then it still feels as MY blog. Of course, it could use some cleaning up and refreshment but from the other hand side I like it the … Continue reading

Affiliate Marketing

It is already some time ago that I last wrote about financial freedom. I just saw that I have 239 days left to win my 365 Days Financial Freedom Challenge. This is not a lot, especially if you consider that I set myself the goal to earn 10,000 EUR per month as from 15 April onwards, but I still think it is possible. And I believe my key to success lies in AFFILIATE MARKETING. Why that? Because affiliate marketing offers a good way to earn steady amounts of passive income once you have everything in place.

How to get a peaceful relationship with money?


I’ve recently come across the online magazine Love Of Your Life which I found is full of interesting articles that give me food for thought. In the April/May edition the article about “Spring Clean Your Relationship With Money” by Terry DeMeo especially caught my attention. Terry explains that most people, no matter if rich or poor, young or old, single or married, lack a peaceful relationship with money. Whether it is too much or too little, it is always a problem. I think she has a point there. According to Terry the reason for this is that we treat our … Continue reading

Why setting small goals makes you quit more easily and why having more money is not a sin?

Bild 074

On April 30, the Dutch celebrate Koninginnedag (“Queen’s Day”), a national holiday celebrating the birthday of Queen Juliana, the former Dutch Queen. It is by far the most important and most celebrated holiday in the Netherlands where the whole country, and especially Amsterdam, turns orange, the Dutch national color. Queen’s Day is known for its parades, concerts, parties but first and foremost for its vrijmarkt (“free market”), where thousands of people sell their stuff on almost every street corner. For me this year’s Queens Day was something very special since it was the first time that I was on the selling side … Continue reading

How do you earn your money? Do you work for the money or does your money work for you? These are four ways how you can earn money: 1.
