It has been a little while since I updated all of you on my goals for June. Let’s take a look to see how well I did this month.
1) Bring My Alexa Rank Down to 78,000 – This absolutely didn’t happen this month. I think summer officially started and there aren’t nearly the amount of people opening up their computers as there were in the winter. I will continue to try to bring this number down, but quite honestly, with school and work, this might have to wait until mid-August. Booo…..
2) Make a Plan to Pay My Mortgage Down to $40,000 by the End of the Year – Well I made the plan last week (see below for what I came up with), now I just need to execute it. I think I’ll be able to find some time this weekend, so I’ll be brainstorming good website names – at least 10 of them – and get this ball rolling!
So here’s my idea. I am excellent at building websites and turning them into something that others want to buy (I get countless offers from others to buy this one). Most of the sites that I’ve built have quickly been ranked by Google with a PR3. If I can accomplish this with just 10 websites, I could easily come up with $15,000 from the sale of them all. Sure, it might take some work, but I’m always up for a challenge!
3) Increase My Subscribers to Over 1,000 – I did it! At this moment I have 1,044 subscribers. I think it might be time for a victory giveaway. What do you think? 🙂
4) Write Every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday – As usual, yep, accomplished.

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.
