As many of you know, I enjoy setting goals for myself quite regularly and I actually share them with my readers as well! It’s pretty risky because occasionally, I have proven myself a failure, but at other times, the goals were met and I felt like I was on top of the world! Either way, the site improves and my readers have a great time coming along for the ride.
So, let’s check out what goals I set for myself by the end of this year, 2011.
Goals For The Rest of This Year, Through December 2011
I have set three major goals for myself and have them listed below. Take a look at my progress.
1) Continue to Write 3-4 Posts Per Week – No matter how busy I get, I make sure to keep the new content coming, because who wants to read old, uninteresting stories? Nobody! So, this is another check in the box. 🙂
2) Develop a “Resources” Page – Done. 🙂
3) Write the eBook – I have the whole book mapped out, and have completed chapter 1, 2, and am almost done with chapter 3. There are really 3 chapters to go (but they are the fun ones), and yes, it’s a lot, but this book is really starting to move and I think the end of December could be a reality for this one. Can’t wait to tell you how much I have completed next week. Who knows? Maybe I’ll be done!
I have really had some great business ideas lately, and I just can’t help but act on them! They are already in the works and I can’t wait to tell you what they are! I should be able to let you in on the secrets in the next couple of weeks.
Here are the articles I enjoyed this week. I hope you enjoy them too!

My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
