My birthday - a recap and valuation of my millionaire goal


I am 28 today. I have 2 years to achieve my goal of becoming a millionaire by 30. Do you think I can do it?

When I started this journey my aim was to use property mostly. Then I separated, my husband lost his job for a while and a lot of my challenge money went to just paying the mortgage. There have been many ups and downs over the last few years, with my current personal situation pretty crappy. BUT I still know I can do it.

Why?
I am now a published author. I do public speaking. I am selling my house and will finally be able to access the money I made at the start of this challenge, but it was used to pay the mortgage. I have various streams of income and more to come.

I know that making more money, no matter where you are in life is completely possible. It is simply a matter of applying yourself, learning all you can and taking action.

The past few months have seen me be a victim of domestic violence, rape (not by my husband, just really want to clarify that), other assaults, a robbery, moving house twice, in and out of court over these crimes against me as well as trying to do the property settlement/child custody arrangement and divorce with my ex. It has been full on.

Despite that, I have a plan of attack and I feel more confident than I ever have throughout this whole challenge. I feel like everything that has happened has brought me to the point in my life I need to be.

So where to from here?
I am in the process of writing a book on people who have gone from homeless to entrepreneurs and it has been not only motivating for me, but so exciting.
Once my house sells I will be purchasing an investment property in my own name. I have looked into it and had I not started doing my blogging/writing etc. a few years ago I would not be in the position now where banks would lend to me. It is still harder than if I had a regular job, but it is doable. I already have some homes I would invest in, so it is just a matter of my house selling to free up the cash.
I am doing some peer to peer lending, privately. Not something I had looked into much before, but it seems to be working out.
I have a couple of other businesses I am potentially going to be a partner in.
I have 2 other projects I will be starting work on in 3 months which should be quite profitable.

I am where I am meant to be. My life is going exactly how it should and I know that as long as I stick to it, put my mind to it and believe in myself, I will achieve my millionaire goal.
