    Millionaire Challenge 10th May 11 at 9:25 PM
    I sat pondering on what ive achieved in my 27 years and realised that anything ive ever said I wanted to do or wanted to have I have managed to achieve.

    Last year after 10 years in catering I completely changed career and last week I achieved a distinction in painting and decorating. This got me thinking that since I always achieve goals I set myself what could I do next....

    Thus the Millionaire challenge!

    So phase 1 is opening a savings account and getting money building up...

    I work for myself so have a bit of control over my earnings, we have 1 property that we rent out and my husband has a decent (secure) job.

    My aim is to get to the million mark by the age of 40 (im 27 now)

    So how many of you think im mad and its impossible and how many of you think i'll do it and have ideas to help me

    Have a browse back through this thread, and have a read through some of the other posts in this section, there are plenty of ideas. You won't find a set of detailed instructions, but you'll find a lot of things to research and a lot of inspiration.

    Try searching on Google for things like "oem limescale cleaning products inurl:china" (remove quotes) but you'll only see the English only results this way.
    This dude makes websites.

    A little update from me. I have paid the full 4000 into this years LISA, just waiting for the bonus now. I have also set up a new S&S ISA for this year and paid in 2500, I am going to transfer last years holding over to the new platform as they have lower fees.

    I have upped my pension contribution to 36% through my employer as this is done through salary sacrifice, but this has meant I will be paying less into my ISA each month. Our payrise is still being negotiated at work (never gets agreed on time, it will be back dated though). I have a new company car, and although it is still towards the lower end of the scale, it is still costing me more than the last car I had.

    With all that considered I am on track to get to a NAV of 250k by the end of the year, hopefully more, maybe even 255k but we will have to see.
