Tell me ONE thing you want in 2011 :)

December 31, 2010

It’s true, we’re all blogging about New Year’s resolutions today cuz we just can’t help ourselves. Fresh starts are so refreshing!  Lots of hope and lots of opportunity just waiting for us to take hold and run with it.  The only sad part is that we get all revved up and then slowly burn out after week 3. (boooooooo) I think I know how to […]

December 30, 2010

(Guest Post by Jeremy Orr – as part of our Side Hustle Series!) For the last eight years I have been dealing craps as a side job at company events and holiday parties. It is a great “side hustle.” The hours are perfect if you keep a 9 to 5 job, the pay is good, but most of all it is a lot of fun. […]

Cleaning Out My Closets & My Mind

December 29, 2010

If there’s one thing I love more than finances & beer (and women my wife), it’s a clean mind. When that noggin’s empty of worries & clutter it’s the most beautiful thing in the world! And I can function SO MUCH better too – it really is amazing. It’s like you turn into some “SUPER you,” getting things done in half the time and w/ […]

You can be sure that I’ve made my fair share of blunders over the years, but I’m grateful that none of them ever put my financial security in jeopardy. I want to share them with you because it’s so much easier […]

Temporary Setbacks are Not Permanent Failures

December 27, 2010

One of my friends recently turned me onto Napoleon Hill’s Thought for the Day. (Yup – the same guy behind the largely loved/hated book Think and Grow Rich (hated because it’s so simple maybe?  I still haven’t read it, but it is on my list)). I’ve only been signed up to it for a few days now, but the quick bursts of inspiration into my […]

December 24, 2010

I hope each and every one of you enjoys some nice time with the friends & fam this weekend! We’ll be traveling a little back and forth between the ‘rents places ourselves, and eating double dinners and cookies.  More so on the cookies if I were to guess ;)  Oh, and also some last minute shopping this morning.  It seems all my blogging about shopping […]

Are Rich People Hotter Than the Rest?

December 22, 2010

The second I heard “Rich chicks are always hotter than poor chicks” on Hot 99.5 this morning I was sold. And I knew I had to keep the discussion alive ;) The talk of money & women combined is enough to stop any A.D.H.D man in his tracks! But before you jump to conclusions as to whether this theory is true or not, here are […]

I Got Fired.

December 17, 2010

There – I said it out loud.  I got fired. And just like that I’m a full-time blogger :) What do you say when that happens to you?  When you’re drafting a post one minute titled  “Designing Your Own Lifestyle”, and then seconds later it becomes a reality?  Is that fate?  Luck?  What are the odds that you get terminated the day before you give […]

December 16, 2010

(Guest Challenge by Sox) Now let me start out by saying that this is something I’ve chosen to do. I’ve made the rules and I don’t expect anyone else to follow it. (Although I welcome the challenge!) A bit about me: How can I pull something like this off? Well financially I’m rather unique. No one is financially dependent on me unless you count my […]
