So in a previous blog post, I wrote about the fact that I need to see a better return on investment on my money that I have saved – rather than just leaving it in a shitty current account or whatever.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about where I want to be in 5 years time. In 5 years, I’ll be 30, so I need to set some goals now and make sure I hit them by the time I get there. So one of the goals I’ve set for myself is to buy a house in London by the time I’m 30. Ambitious, right? Not with the right financial plan.
