I forced myself not to write this article because I’m supposedly on a summer studious break, and also because it could have waited for my next net worth update article.
But I couldn’t resist… because we’ve just passed the half-million CHF net worth mark!!! With patience, savings and determination, anything is possible in personal finance. I’m living proof if you still needed it ;)
And you want to know what’s the most beautiful thing in all this? Well, what made us pass this milestone was a bank transfer from one of my blog affiliate programs (Zak not to mention them). It gave me one more reason to not keep it to myself ;)
In any case, I would like to thank you, dear reader, for your support since my debut in 2014. When I think back, I might have had more low than high regarding motivation if I hadn’t had Team MP behind me. So this half million CHF is partly thanks to you.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all those who support this blog project by becoming a patron, but also to all those who have used my “MP codes” when they subscribed to a service that I use and love myself. Swiss franc after Swiss franc, it adds up pretty quickly.
And I can’t forget those who trusted me with the kickstarter of my book, my investment and personal finance coaching sessions, or my Swiss FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) calculator pilot.
Thanks to all of you. Sincerely.
The surprise for Mrs. MP?
The most assiduous among you will certainly ask me in the comments below what surprise I have in store for Mrs. MP for this important milestone we have just reached? Well, we’ll keep the suspense until the end! If you want to know more, make sure you follow me on one of those platforms to get the info live by the end of August: LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook (psst, if you are a blog patron, you have access to the exclusive info via this Patreon URL ;))
The next stop with such a blogpost will be: the million CHF! It feels weird writing it, but we might as well start talking about it early so we can get used to it when we get there.
On that note, I’m going back to writing my book (between two bike rides in the forest) if I want it to come out before the end of 2020 as planned!
PS: I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the two new patrons of the blog Alain and Matteo. A big thank you for your support!
