How We Offered Everything & Still Got Rejected (Buying Your First Home – Part 2)

About a month ago, I began a series of blog posts where I wrote about my experience buying my first home (with my fiance).  If you didn’t read the first post, I encourage you to check it out here:

Buying Your First Home: Are You CRAZY? (Part I – Beginning the Process)

In this part of the series, I’m going to go into the actual home search process, including the offers we made, and how everything actually turned out. If there’s anything I’ve learned throughout this entire process, it’s this:

Nothing goes exactly as planned.

Just when you think you’ve done enough (or more than enough), you realize you’ve fallen short.

While it can be frustrating, I guess this makes it all the more satisfying when everything finally does work out.  You just need to stick with it, even when nothing seems to be going your way.

Now, let’s pick up where we left off…

Is Your Current Success Preventing You From Succeeding as an Entrepreneur?

For many people, success as an entrepreneur is this mysterious, elusive milestone.  At times, it seems impossible, despite your good ideas and effort.

But then, there are those people who make it look so easy.  They aren’t geniuses.  They don’t have some unique, multi-million dollar idea.

So what’s going on here? Why them, and not you?

I’ve come to the realization through the dozens of interviews I’ve conducted (actually, we’re approaching 100 interviews now on The Daily Interview) that one of the biggest barriers to entrepreneurial success is…existing success.

If this sounds a bit confusing, allow me to explain.

My Online Income Report – May 2014

Hey there – welcome to my income report for May (2014)!

In addition to the usual monthly income figures I report, I wanted to talk a bit about the future in this post.  Most importantly: getting back to basics, and what that means for My 4-Hour Workweek.  It’s all good stuff, don’t worry.

And although there’s not much to report in the way of earnings, I also talk about the future The Daily Interview, and how it’s grown over the past month.

Let’s get to this month’s report…

Buying Your First Home: Are You CRAZY? (Part I – Beginning the Process)

Although this may be a bit outside the scope of what I usually write about, I thought it would be interesting to document my experience as first-time home buyer in Chicago.  It’s been a crazy experience so far.

My fiance and I recently purchased a condo in Wicker Park (a neighborhood in Chicago), and although we haven’t closed yet (that’ll be next month), I have plenty to write about.  Buying a home is usually the biggest purchase most people make in their lives, and doing it for the first time can be exciting, scary, and frustrating all at the same time.

This isn’t meant to be a tutorial in buying your first home, but I think there are definitely some valuable lessons to take away from the experience I’ve had so far.

Because I could probably write volumes on this topic, I’m going to break it up into at least 2 or 3 parts.  This is part 1: beginning the process.

My Online Income Report – April 2014

Hey, welcome to April 2014′s income report!

For those who aren’t regular readers here, I publish an income report each month to highlight the results of my online activities.  I originally started doing this to hold myself accountable to my results, but I quickly realized that other people enjoy reading these too (which is why you probably see a lot of bloggers publishing monthly income reports these days).

I am absolutely nowhere close to earning a “full-time” income online, but right now, I enjoy being able to supplement my full-time job as a CPA with some income earned from blogging and other online activities that I enjoy doing.

Let’s get to this month’s report…

How to Earn Money INSTANTLY From A New E-mail Subscriber (Without Selling to Them)

The old saying goes, “the money is in the list.” Frankly, I’ve gotten sick of hearing that over the years.  As someone who has a fairly large e-mail list (around 6,500 subscribers), I make very little money with my e-mail list.

In fact, I may even be losing money with it.

Why do I bother keeping a list? Because the benefits generally extend beyond the money. For example, I was able launch The Daily Interview earlier this year and have instant traffic to it, thanks to my e-mail list.  It’s a powerful resource to have.

Today, I’m going to talk about something entirely different – a way to make money from your e-mail list right when someone subscribes, and you don’t even have to sell to them.
