Welcome to my fourteenth lifestyle report where I share my income, personal expenses, fitness, productivity, social media and blog statistics. Check out my first lifestyle report to find out why I started documenting my life. Here’s the September’s report.
October was the best month of the year, hands down. Thanks to Nomad Cruise, I crossed the Atlantic ocean with 260 other nomads, entrepreneurs, writers, marketers, developers and whatnot.
I made a lot of friends, got inspired by amazing speakers, had some of the best parties in my life, visited paradise islands in the Caribbean and spent the rest of the month coliving in Bocas del Toro with the WiFi Tribe.
Financially, October was the worst month of the year. I made only $664.77 after all the business expenses and taxes. It feels good to have savings in low months. Check the full breakdown below.
I was surprised how expensive Panama can be. In October I spent $2,614.33 on personal expenses. More than 30% of that went to food. Constantly eating out is not cheap. Check all the details below.
In October I was quite active and managed to get back to my sleep and exercise routine. Here’s my fitness report.
October was quite productive. I finished writing my book and started the editing process, published 9 articles in Forbes and recorded 2 podcasts.
To track my time I use RescueTime, an app that tracks everything you do and gives you a productivity score. I know I’m not a machine and I consider it a good day if my productivity pulse is over 55.
