It’s June 2 and I already forgot my goals for this month. This is why I revisit them every week! Anyway, let’s take a look and see how I’m doing. I’m kind of scared….
1) Bring My Alexa Rank Down to 78,000 – I was as low as 82,000 or so, but now my number is climbing again (not a good thing). My 7-day estimate is hovering around 100,000, so I have to do something about this and fast, otherwise I’ll be headed in completely the wrong direction. Currently, my Alexa is at 83,386. Don’t worry though, more kick-butt articles are on the way (especially tomorrow).
2) Make a Plan to Pay My Mortgage Down to 40,000 by the End of the Year – II totally forgot that this was a June goal, but it’s a great one to have. Now that my finances are a little bit more predictable I should be able to develop a plan for this, and it will keep my random purchases at bay as well.
3) Increase My Subscribers to Over 1,000 – I have recently started my “members only” area, which I thought would spark some new subscribers. There hasn’t been a ton of interest thus far, but it’s still early. I’ll have to come up with a new plan to gain some more subscribers by the end of this month if I hope to reach 1,000.
4) Write Every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday – Yep yep. And I also added a Saturday post to show my recent income report, so I’m doing extra! 😉

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.
