Cora of The Mini Millionaire

Hi, I’m Cora Harrison

I started The Mini Millionaire way back in 2014. I’d just graduated from University and decided to leave the corporate world I was destined for and instead start up my own business. Since then I’ve gone on to start more side-hustles than I can count. Some have been successful, some not so much… Some have even been so successful I’ve sold them!

The Mini Millionaire was designed as a place for me to document my experiences (instead of boring my girlfriend Helen with financial speel). Little did I know it would turn into a dedicated resources for those looking to earn money, save money and take back control of their finances.

I hope you enjoy it!


From side-hustles making £100 a month through to businesses turning over £80,000 a year. In a short space of time, I’ve done it all… and I’m here to share my secrets on how you can do it too! Earning money online, from your home, there’s something here to suit every need…

6 Fuel-Saving Tips for Motorists Being a driver does not just encompass purchasing a car and driving it from A to B, and many people fail to consider the numerous ongoing expenditures involved.
