Lessons Learned From Today’s Failed Guest Post…

November 29, 2012

When your article pisses off more people than it helps, it’s failed. In the future remember that side hustles are more about the job over the product – something I grossly missed with this one.

Welp, my non-lottery playing record of 7 months in a row has just grinded to a halt!

(And likely to go up even more throughout the day…) So instead of picking up just one […]

An interesting thing happens when you’re taking care of a child all day long – you end up going outside as much as possible in order to try and interact with other adults :) If you’re good with timing you’ll know when everyone’s out and about to increase your odds of some good interaction, and if not you’ll have to hop in the car and […]

As you probably know by now, Black Friday is right around the corner. But as exciting as that sounds to the retail industry – and possibly you? – there’s about a million OTHER things some of us would rather do than wake up at 3 a.m. and stand in line to get the newest Tickle Me Elmo (wait, what’s that? They’re not popular anymore? Okay […]

How’s THAT for a title? ;) And luckily the tool I wanna share with y’all today is just as juicy too! At least with the way I operate my Amazon addiction… I swear it seems I buy EVERYTHING there now – remember when it was only about books? (Or am I dating myself there? Haha…) If you pay for Amazon Prime, then this won’t apply […]

For someone who has “budgets” in their name, I sure don’t talk about them that often ;) But probably because I’ve done enough of it earlier in the years that I now tend to post things up only when I see something different or exciting or unique. Which happens to be today! (Lucky you!) A lovely commenter by the name of Cat shared a good […]

(Guest Post by Travis of Enemy of Debt) Imagine coming into work Monday morning, and being informed by your boss that your yearly salary is being increased by $40,000. Doing some rough estimating, after Uncle Sam takes 25% you’re left with a cool $30,000, which works out to an additional $2500 per month. How would you feel? What kind of impact would that make on […]

CNN Money just came out with their latest snapshot on the best new jobs in America right now, and not surprisingly none of them were in my own 30+ gig work history ;) I don’t know the methodology they used to come up with these 6 favorites of theirs – they kinda just plopped ’em on up htere – but either way I thought you’d […]
