I have been struggling with debt for the last 6 years. I just want to free to pay off all my debts and help those closest to me.
I am going to be updating how much money I make each day. I will be posting each income stream.
My goal is to build multiple income streams.
I'm well educated but have been stupid with money throughout my adult life. I'm going to go in depth with what I do daily. Keeping this diary as something for accountability and I don't really have any close friends or family who would understand the extent of my problems. So speaking to you strangers might help.

Income one: Trading Account -
Income two: Matched Betting - (first time trying this, any tips would be helpful)
Income three: Trade Setup Alerts - (signals for trades) (will advertise on instagram)
Income four: Trade Copier Services

I have a few challenges I need to complete for my own financial security and future:
  • 2019 1% challenge
  • Make £10 A Day August 2019
  • The £1,000 emergency fund challenge.
  • 1 debt vs 100 days
  • 3 - 6 month Emergency Fund Challenge
Emergency Fund: 0/1,000
ISA: 0/20,000
Loqbox: 0/10,000
