    Yeah i plan on splitting streamate with livejasmin as they are both a similar style hustle so i think they will work well together, and they recently relaxed their rules thank god. then when i'm a bit more confident with splitcamming i will add a token site, like stripchat i think.

    you are a badass!!! its more about discipline than motivation i think when it come to camming. but it certainly pays off!

    If you want to add stripchat, try to do it trough ShineModel browser. You can broadcast on stripchat, chaturbate and mfc, all at once and have all of them in one chat window. AAAND via OBS, which brings sharpw clear quality! Also doesn't take much of the CPU so, it's a great tool!! There's a thread about it on Ambercutie forum, everyone loves it. Too bad no one speaks about it here.
    Jasmin works perfectly with Streamate, this is what many models do, especially studio models, they splitcam only on these two.

    I've got 7 weeks until I go off for christmas things but I'm expecting 2 periods so I'm going to give myself until xmas break for my next 10k. Guess that means around $2k a week with a little bit of wiggle room. The last 10k got completed and spent, we've both got fancy new office equipment, some expenses have been cleared etc. This one is all about survival if I need to take 2 months off for my surgery.

    Week 1 - $172/2k
    Week 2 - (probably shark week)
    Week 3 -
    Week 4 -
    Week 5 -
    Week 6 - (probably shark week)
    Week 7 -

    They say the first 10K is the hardest and then getting to $20k will be easier, I have found this to be true. I have also been listening to Her 1St $100k podcast Tori Dunlap & follow her on Instagram. Momentum does build, then this week started listening or watching Project Life Mastery. Which he has opened my eyes to more possibilities & to dream bigger.

    Staying focused on your goals with daily reminders is helping me and I find this thread inspirational.

    It really does help me focus on my long term goal with short term actions. Like stay on cam & make another $50 to $100 or push myself & do a few more custom vids. Helps remind me even if don't have an extra $100, that just investing $20 like on Cashapp into a stock all adds up.

    And I love using CashApp to buy stock, it helps with my shopping addiction. Instead of buying stuff on Amazon, I buy stock in them. Helps move money out of my bank account where I will just spend away & into an investment where I won't sell off because I know in the long run I can really increase my money there.

    Podcast I like to listen to on my morning walks to help get me motivated for the day. Then I don't get pulled into watching a movie or binge watching HGTV. Rather be making money instead. Today I listen to this https://youtu.be/2V06cH1z3Qo while putting on makeup and bathing.

    I had no idea I could buy stocks with CashApp. I am just wondering how this effects the 1% cash out rate. I need to look into their transaction fees and how they manage a portfolio STAT!

    You can also buy & sell Bitcoin on it, although I am not into crypto currency myself.

    Finally debt free again as of Sept and I've managed to save 3050 this month. Pretty pleased with myself tbf!

    I worked so hard cleared all my debt last year, then almost straight after I ended up off sick for nearly 2 months straight and consequently, went straight back into debt. A bit demoralising really but life goes on! I was kind of lucky tbh. It would have been a real nightmare if I was still in debt with maxed out credit cards.

    I'm building up a 10k emergency fund (over halfway there now) and once that's finished, I'll keep adding a small amount to the emergency fund monthly and the rest will be split between my Vanguard investments and a deposit for an investment property.

    Aiming to have the EF finished by end of Dec, or Jan at absolute latest.

    Love seeing everyone's updates here, there's some impressive figures! $$$

A SEP account you can put away just around 20% of your income without federal income tax (still pay your 15.4% self employment tax). Let your money go make babies. Lots of babies. You can invest your money in whatever you want. Then you can withdraw it anytime before you are retirement age and just pay the federal income tax you would have paid ANYWAYS plus a 10% "penalty." It's honestly not a penalty because if you put it in the market post tax you pay either 1) income tax AGAIN on your capital gains or 2) 15% on your capital gains after holding for +1 year. So technically you save 5% using a SEP vs. if you just put it in the market on your own. Like buying stocks and ETFs with post tax money instead of throwing it in the savings account that really has no interest whatsoever.

    Making your money work for you is like raising your rate and passive income at the same time. Knowledge is power...
    Today I learned that you cannot have a solo 401K and a SEP IRA for the same self employment income stream. I also learned that you CANNOT withdraw from your solo 401K and accept the income tax + 10% penalty whereas a SEP IRA you can. THE MORE YOU KNOW! I'm too fluid with my investments to ever wait until 59 1/2 or I become disabled. I'd rather just take the tax hit and invest on my own.

    I maxed out my SEP IRA for the year YTD today. I felt proud of myself!

    this month i accomplished so much
    i was able to get my immigration status updated and paid, got my dental work done, replaced my broken phone, got my hair fixed, stored points on all of my credit cards for the future (i churn cards and always pay them off each month) , got my medical stuff taken care of, lost 7 pounds so far, and still managed to put a decent amount into savings! and started a new business venture. y
    i am going to try for $2500 this week again.
