By The Numbers…

It seems that the US does stop for 4th July celebrations for about a week or two … go figure! But, just when I was beginning to think that the 7MITs feel that they have enough to go on without our help, Jeff pops up with this interesting post … for all of you with […]

Can You Find Your Number on Craigslist?

Can You Find Your Number on Craigslist? As I prepare for my entry in to MM201, I’m finding that my game plan is changing.  My original play book was aimed at achieving an annual compound growth rate of 38%.  However, in my previous post, I noted that recent increases in my net worth have reduced […]

Leaving the comfort zone…

Leaving the comfort zone… Jeff has made great progress, but he’s still at the stage where adding a single rental foreclosure can increase his Net Worth by 67%; over the next 18 months he will probably need to maintain that growth rate … another $400k in equity over the next 18 months should do it, […]

I owe, I owe, So It's Off to Work I Go….

Straight To The Point

Straight To The Point… No pictures of jets, Jeff? Straight down to business? So, THAT’S how it’s gonna be is it … ? 🙂 In the post, Jeff is flaunting his violations of both Rules, what are we gonna do about it??! Seriously, Jeff has a plan and a strategy and I would be interested […]

Connecting the dots

Thanks, Mark! It looks like Mark […]

Clicking My Way Into Making Money 201

Clicking My Way Into Making Money 201 While we wait for the other 6 MITs to follow Diane’s lead, with her excellent post based on my Finding Your Growth Engine exercise, Jeff – our newest Millionaire … in Training! – welcomes us into 2009 with some insight into his own money-making plans … _________________________ Making […]

Start Here

Start Here Photo credit: massdistraction Mark is income ‘rich’ compared to what he needs to spend; now, imagine adding: wife, children, dog, college fund, bigger house (hence, bigger mortgage, bigger land tax), more food, clothes, it’s enough to make you want to stay single …. is that a dream or a financial nightmare? 🙂 Looks […]
