Apartment building Investment($1Million to my name)

Back in December of 2004, my wife and I purchased a 4-family apartment building in our neighborhood. We had been interested in acquiring an investment property for some time, and once we finally had the money saved up (sort of, I’ll explain later), we started looking for properties. The one property we really wanted was actually right behind our house, right across the alley. After taking care of the building for 2+ years now, I can tell you the close proximity to our house is a real blessing.

How Much Is Enough?(FiscalMusings)

Everybody wants to be a millionaire these days. For some reason this seems to be the magic number that everyone says would solve their financial problems and make them wealthy.Articles have been written and polls taken about how much it would really take consider yourself rich. It’s interesting to see the wide variety of answers that people give.

US Housing Bubble Ignored(MarketOracle)

Two years ago, anyone who wrote about the housing bubble was dismissed as a conspiracy nut. Now hardly a day goes by that the headlines aren’t splattered with the details of the massive meltdown in the real estate market. What changed?

Your days are flying by and you don’t seem to be doing as much as you should. Is it because you have too much work to do or is it because you’re not as productive as you can be?

Make Money With Techdirt(businesspundit)

Blogger Chris O’Donnell recently sent me a note about his new gig at Techdirt. He hinted at a new model for corporate intelligence and research, so I prodded him for more info. It turns out that Techdirt has found a nice way to bypass the “wisdom of crowds” and find the “gems in the crowd” – those few people who have real expertise and can provide excellent answers to a topic.

New Outlook On Life(thesimpledollar)

It was last April, a year ago now, that I really suffered the worst of my financial meltdown, and I finally woke up to the realization that I needed to make some drastic changes in the way I spent my money. I cut a ton of fat out of my spending, paid off all of my credit cards, paid off my vehicle, put thousands away in an emergency fund, and started this website.
