Stop Dreaming and Make it Happen
Rather than simply dreaming about what you would do with an extra $1,000 per month, why not actually do it? My friend and fellow blogger, JT, had this very thought and it lead him to start his own website called Grand Per Month. This site will focus on all the ways people could change their working habits and make an extra grand per month, and will also highlight the effect that this could have on their lives.
Melissa, from MomsPlans.com, and myself, have partnered with Jim to make this venture a future success. We all believe that making an extra grand per month is entirely possible, and if you have the drive to do something a little different, then you could get your hands on that extra grand (every single month)!!
Getting Closer to that $30,000 in 2012
If you have been tracking this site, you know that I (along with about 30 others) have entered the 30k Challenge at Online Money Bloggers! With this new venture (Grand Per Month), I believe that I can reach this goal of$30,000 in 2012. Be sure to check out the site soon and track everyone’s progress toward this audacious goal!
What would you do with an extra $1,000 a month? How would it change your life?
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.
