I Want to Make Your Budget


I have recently helped two of my friends set up a plan for debt payoff and retirement savings. They both have started telling me to branch out and I try to always follow good advice. I figured this would be the perfect fit – help others get their finances under their own control and [...]

When Life Gives You Lemons, Diversify


Google hurt me. Well, technically, Google decided to take a poop on a bunch of bloggers’ and advertisers’ Page Ranks, so now advertisers are gun shy. But since I run a blog advertising business, Google hurt me. April has been our lowest income month since the business took off last year. We aren’t in [...]

I have been asked a few times in the last 2 months if I would have jumped into self employment if I knew Google would hit my clients and advertisers in March and April 2012. Yes, yes I would. Self employment obviously has its ups and downs, but quite frankly, I feel that a [...]

My New Approach to Time Management


I now have about 75 sites as clients for my blog advertising business. Even though I can run some sites out of one email address since they are owned by the same person, I am still keeping up with about 50 different email addresses and closing 2-3 big deals a week out of my [...]
