December 2018

For December 2018 I had a huge list of books prepared that I wanted to read/listen to. Reality though was that I was mostly occupied searching for a full time job and learning new things through books and Youtube Channels.

Here is the list:  Seth Godin - TribesSeth Godin - Purple Cow  Sheryl Sandberg - Lean In
I love listenting to amazing Seth and he surely advanced even more in my personal favorite authors charts. Click here to see what else I was studying.


Sheryl Sandberg was the most surprising women I have ever heard of. Her story is amazing and for a woman I can so much relate to all she said. She knows what women struggle with and how. I believe it is time to raise women!!! (more about this below in the part about Amandas Course)

If you retain anything from me in 2018, please let it be Sheryl's book!

November 2018 Book List

November brings new things Not only me learning more and more, but also writing on my book about money. Exciting news are on the way, that much is for sure!!

Here is the list of the books worth mentioning:

Anything is possible - Joe Vitale Warren Buffett: 9 Daily Habits of Warren Buffett - Isaac FoxDie Gesetze der Gewinner - Bodo Schäfer
There are lots of German books, in case you don´t understand German, please jump down to the part about Joe Vitale.

Definitelynot recommendable is Bodo Schäfers book who is a well known speaker. Save your time and money and simply listen to his speeches. That is enough. 


---> With Joe Vitales book I got the second book by him which I am just about to finish. 
In this short book he tells us about his fascinating experiences with the Old Strongmen Club where he learned how to bend horseshoes by hand and with the right mindset.

Until next month, the last month with more surprises! Take care and keep saving your…

October 2018

A Recap Month October was a recap month for the most. And also the month I quit my Audible subscription. I had enough and I was not happy with their customer service. But that is another story.

Octobers book list:
In October, what I thought was a great idea, turned out to be a failed attempt:

"A Course in Miracles" by Helen Schucman

The copy sold on audible seemed to be a recording from a radio series and I had trouble understanding anything. This "book" might be good as a live workbook or course but it´s not something that you listen to while you are taking a walk or driving. The 49hour long audible book is something one should work through during a week off by really working through it page by page.

The audiobook has a lot of negative references and even a long video reference recommending NOT to get it.  I purchased it anyway. Why?  I wanted to know what the hype was about, and why public speakers and spiritual teachers are citing it so often.

Tips on how to invest in P2P credit platforms

Looking back onto nearly a year of investment on different platforms, today I logged into my profiles again and decided to write an update. For me Mintos and Bondora is where I "play".  Most finance bloggers online say they have a few 1000 Euros on there and thereof get out a nice sum per month. Good for them, I personally only have a few 100 on there.

I do find it a bit risky to invest thousands, however it is possible to do so. Once you have followed a platform for a long time and you feel that they are stable enough, do it if you feel is stable. I personally just invest little play money.


Looking back, here are my "little woman" investment revelations:Don´t invest too heavily from the start. Play with small amounts and see what you learn - loan originator by loan originator, country by country.Invest country by country or loan originator by loan originator. By doing this, you will gain the necessary knowledge you need for the future. Why would you invest in As…

September 2018 book list

Image
September was a month of surprises and huge mindset shifts for me. The book list is short, because additionally I started a Money Mindset Online Course and I was still staying in the mountains without much internet access.

A major shift in my mindset happened. Thanks to Denise Duffield-Thomas books - as we already learned last month - I realized that I had money blocks. But what kind? September helped me to find out which ones.


Book List:
Attract money now - Joe Vitale
Das Einmaleins des Immobilienmaklers - Florian Roski 


This was the first time I have read anything by Joe Vitale, also known for his appearance in the movie "The Secret". Vitale teaches what I am also learning in the Money Mentality Makeover Course and what I have so far picked up from the recent books by Gabrielle Bernstein and Denise Duffield-Thomas, and others. I can certainly recommend it to anyone.

Florian Roski is a well known personality in the German speaking circles, who became wealthy by flipping rea…

August 2018

The end of August is around the corner. Another month went by and again it passed so quickly.

What I would like to stress this month is this: Realize that time passes anyway - and fast - you might as well invest into something. Did you hear that: Invest into something and then continue living your life.


Time will pass anyway! Use your time and let your knowledge (and money) compound. We as humans are very well fixed into our 3 dimensions. But there are actually 5. We forget the 2 additional panes:

- Relationships
- Time

With investing we use the 5. dimension of time. We also do this when we plant something in the garden, probably unconsciously so. It will grow if we keep watering it and taking care of it and put it into a good network of other plants (4. dimension). Try applying the same to your investments: I mean the financial investments and your personal investments.


Augusts books are as follows:

- A random walk down wall street - Burton G Malkiel
- Get Rich, Lucky Bitch: Relea…

July 2018 Booklist

Time flies when we enjoy ourselves right? July presented me with a range of good and tempting reads and I felt that I didn´t have enough time to read/listen to what I had wanted because I was working on other topics. My wish list keeps growing and my Audible Library too!


The list:
- Lucky Bitch. A guide for exceptional Women to create outrageous success -  Denise Duffield-Thomas
- Worth it - your life your money - Amanda Steinberg
- The Universe has your back - Gabrielle Bernstein


Do I feel bad that I can only present you with 3 titles?  No. The list looks like very little work, however it was a remarkable month. A major shift in my thinking occurred.

Firstly, all the books were written by women.  Many of you might know Gabrielle Bernsteins book. She is well known and the book is great if you just start out to learn about universal laws and money as a women. However Denise Duffield-Thomas is not a name that pops up very often. Even more surprisingly though, she helped me to learn most…

June 2018 Book list

Half a year is over now. Wow, that went so fast, it feels as if I just started the yesterday. Time is flying. Again Time is the currency folks, as money is abundant. 

Along with my recent update and 6-months wrap-up I am showing you my list here which is quite something to show for, considering that I was also starting 3 Instagram accounts in June and fully designed my other website. I have now adapted the workaholic mentality.

How and Why? It´s Gary V is the answer. Follow Gary Vaynerchuck on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook: Any platform that you are using. I think this man is authentic, clear and straight to the point and he has helped me a lot.

I realize more and more that all we need (knowledge, motivation, help, community) is out there. We just have to find it, consume it and then ACTUALLY APPLY it. Easier said than done. Which challenges do you face concerning this matter?

Knowing that I am also leaning into Personal Development myself, I am quite aware of this and wish to go ba…

6 months of diving deeply into finances

Half a year has gone since I started to read all I could about money and investments. Already.  What has changed? Now I wanted to come up with a huge bullet list of things to impress you. I tried, and I got a few things together in a simple list, but no...  that is not valuable. I think most of them are still in "progress" and shifts don´t happen overnight. Moreover, I don´t think you can take something home from a bullet list only.
Let me explain: I think the chore thing that really changed in me is my mindset. 1) I am no longer interested in wasting time and I am avoiding it
For example:
- I would chose the direct flight over the one with a stop that is half of the price or lower.
- Or I would buy an item I need on the way to something else, even if it costs a little bit more. By doing that, I avoid going out to the shops yet again and losing another hour.

-> Conclude this:
Because I don´t have that much time. Time is money. Money is unlimited, but time is not.
