To inspire you to save and use your money more wisely, I am kick starting Round 2 of The $1,000 Project. You can following along with this project to pay down debt, save up for a particular item, start investing or even bring on an early retirement! The choice is yours and you create the rules!

My goal for The $1,000 Project is to get the dividend income up to $4,000 p.a. by October 2017. So far the portfolio generates a dividend income of $1,700 p.a. which is now being reinvested so that I can make the most of compounding interest opportunities. The passive income will go to another charity at the end of the challnege in 12 months time.

Also, everytime I do something to save money or earn extra money, I will take a photo and put it on my Instagram account and hashtag #the1000project (no $ sign). So if you are doing The $1,000 Project, I encourage you to share your ideas for saving money and help inspire others…so that we are working as a community. I will also try to regram your images where you have hashtagged #the1000kproject

Remeber, you don’t need to be bying shares and I am not recommending this as an investment to you but chasing this strategy for my goals for the challenge.

45 Thoughts to “Saving & Investing for long term passive income! The $1,000 Project is back!”

  1. Dennis Benedictos

    Hi Sugar Mamma, thanks for the videos. You are not only gorgeous but I love your videos helping people become financially literate. Just want to share my 2017 project where I aimed to create a passive income for myself. One way was via running a web design business as a side income. I've learnt how to create and design websites using WordPress, where in 2017, I aimed to win upto 10 paying clients and I managed to win 9! Now, getting paid to design websites is not the passive part but I learnt that instead of just designing the website I started hosting my clients' websites under my own hosting account and then charge each of my client $200-$300 annual fee for support and hosting. That means by end of 2017 I managed to create close to $2000 /yr, every year of 'passive' income from web hosting fees. πŸ™‚ In preparation for my goals in 2018, I've now upgraded my hosting account as a web hosting reseller to better manage my clients and prepare to scale my business up. My 2018 Goal is to scale my revenue to x10 by increasing my client base from 9 (in 2017) to 100! It will be a tough goal for 2018 but if I manage to do this then I should see an approx revenue of $20k /year. If I only manage to achieve 50% of my goal then that is still $10k /yr, every year. πŸ™‚ As you said, break down the goals to smaller goals so that they become realistic and achievable. I will be reviewing my goals week by week, monthly and quarterly.

  4. Maria Virgen Berrios

    Hi! I also want to know if the following two things count for the project:

    1- I pay $50 weekly for cleaning my house. If I do the cleaning myself I will save $50 per week. Does that money go to the one thousand project fund?

    2- I pay $50 per week for supervised after school study for my girl. If I supervise my girl and do assignments with her Monday through Thursday I will save $50 per week. Does that money go to the $1,000 project fund?

    Thank you for your attention!πŸŒΌπŸ‡΅πŸ‡·

    Hi Canna please do a video on Acorns. I have started but I have no idea what I'm doing

  18. Amanda11762

    I saved $140 since this video! took my lunch to work 4/5 days and Saturday in lieu of dinner and book store my husband and I stayed in, I made a delicious meal and watched Netflix. I thought of you and put that would have spent cash into my savings.

  19. Ali Goldsmith

    Canna, what do you think of automated investment services such as Wealthfront and Betterment?
    I am looking into starting my investment portfolia using one of these but value your opinion before going forward.
    Can you do a video on your opinion please? Thank you!

  20. Razer946

    Hey Canna, I'm a bit confuse. Would I need to pay taxes on things I've sold through declattering? Thanks!

  21. Roxy Galdz

    Hi Canna, I started following your $1000 project few months ago. I started selling my high end purses through Fon app and also doing OT at work if someone called out. I literally able to save few backs and started investing through Fidelity. Just few days ago I look at my Investment Account Activity and saw 7.77 dividend I received from one of my Stocks Shares. I was very delighted and was jumping for joy lol. Thank you so much for inspiring me! I'm looking forward to more savings from my long term investment πŸ’–

  22. Victoria Mather

    I'm still a little confused. So you make some form of income off something other than your work income, save it in $1000 lumps and invest it to gain interest, but when do you take that money out and buy handbags/give it to charity? How much do you wait for it to make/have before you take it out? And you normally can't just take investments out whenever you want.

  23. Thanh Hang

    Could you please let me know where can I sell my high end handbag and which company should I trust for market research? Thanks

  25. Ben Cattell

    Sugar Mamma don't forget that you can save on your Banoffee pie. lol

  26. Raccoon Eyes

    with banks being unstable, is it really safe to keep so much in savings when the bank can legally steal it when they start to go under?

  27. Rachael Maree

    Why do you always focus on paying off your HECS debt? Wouldn't your money be better off being invested with higher returns?

  28. silkandsequins

    I am doing a smaller-scale $100 project for myself with a goal of $200 in passive income by next October! I have already created $300 through selling a purse I no longer wanted and getting a new job and putting my vacation pay-out from my old job towards the project. Thanks Canna you're so inspiring, keep it up!
