I have this very ambitious goal… of becoming a millionaire! I am just an ordinary woman, with an ordinary just-above-minimum-wage job.
Is it possible without becoming obsessed with money?
Can I do this whilst sticking to my values?
Can an anxious 30-year-old-something person really become a millionaire?
The short answer is: probably not. However, I wanted to find a resource somewhere that would enable me to do that. So why no create it myself? A diary of the ups and downs on this journey, which will lead to growth and better self-awareness whether I succeed or not. I realize that I am in a better starting position than most people as I live in a European country and don’t have any consumer debt. I can also afford to save something every month, for which I am very grateful. I am doing this for my future-self to ensure a good life for my future children and our retirement.
So I am officially starting at £100 with my first investment in a stocks and shares ISA. Wish me luck!
Fun fact: it would take over 833 years for me to become a millionaire with my current rate of saving …
