FinCon is one of the best conferences I’ve ever been to. If you are in financial media, you need to find your way to FinCon. Before I get into my FinCon wrap up post, I want to thank PT, Nick, Jessica, Justin, Jay, Susan, Libby, and the rest of the FinCon staff and volunteers for […]

Do you read blogger net worth reports? Do you enjoy a little peek into the finances of some of your favorite bloggers? One of my favorite reports is J. Money’s monthly net worth updates, a feature he’s had for over ten years. What I enjoy about his reports is the report has everything you would […]
The steps to starting a business are really straightforward. Starting a business is as simple as saying – “I’m a business.” Every citizen has a Social Security Number and can immediately start a sole proprietorship. It gives you the least amount of legal cover, since you are personally liable as a sole proprietor, but you […]
When I first started blogging, I didn’t go to conferences because I had a full-time job. After I quit to blog full-time, I started going to all kinds of conferences. I went to massive internet marketing conferences like Pubcon and Affiliate Summit, I went to smaller fintech conferences like Finovate, and I even went to […]
I haven’t updated my resume in over a decade. Today, that’s going to change. But it’s not going to change in the way you think – I’m going to create a failure resume. A failure resume is exactly what it says – it’s when you list your career and personal failures. It’s not a new […]
When I started my business years ago, I thought the responsible business-y thing to do was to get a Post Office box. Why? I honestly don’t know. Like business cards, it’s just one of those things (at least I use the PO Box!). Since then, I’ve found that a Post Office Box is a great […]

When many people […]
Homeownership is great… except you end up shelling out quite a bit to get things done to and around your home. We live on a wooded lot with lots of tall trees. Just recently a maple fell and it measured a little over 4′ in diameter with the main trunk that was easily 10′ tall. […]
In 2005, I wrote my first blog post on an unknown personal finance blog that would eventually grow beyond my wildest dreams. A few years later I would quit my comfortable stable job in the defense industry to work on a “blog” full-time. In the ten+ years since, there are a few things I wished […]
