Why I’ll Never Stop Dreaming

Why I’ll Never Stop Dreaming

As long as I can remember, people have called me a dreamer. I don’t think it’s always been a complement, nor was it stated to be a positive attribute. I guess they thought that Kenny Rogers was a prophet when he sang: “Don’t fall in love with a dreamer, ’cause he’ll break you every time.” I think people were trying to say that I needed to be more realistic, come…

Lost and Found

Lost and Found

Have you ever been to the lost and found section of your child’s school near the end of the school year? I remember going to my kids’ school (a small private school) and seeing dozens of sweatshirts, nice jackets, backpacks, belts, pants, shoes, books, TI calculators, and tons of other gadgets and items that students had left behind. All-in-all, this was thousands and thousands of dollars worth of name brand…

2017… I’m Finally Ready For Ya!

2017… I’m Finally Ready For Ya!

It took me a solid month to get my goal setting, planning, vision, and dreams set for the year. Now I’m ready.  This blog post is more for my own sake than it is for anyone else. I believe in writing out my goals, sharing them, making them public, and always before me. So, let’s get started… and not in any particular order because they are all priority! Health I’m…

Rich’s Bucket List

Rich’s Bucket List

For me, in my life right now, this may be one of the most important blog posts I have written in a long time. It’s my bucket list. I turned 51 last month, and as I move toward the autumn of my life, I want to create a list of things I want to accomplish before I kick the bucket. This bucket list will require some changes in my life…

I Have What I Deserve… Now To Change That

I Have What I Deserve… Now To Change That

I was listening to a man speak who was referencing Warren Buffet. Warren Buffet had been speaking to a group of high school students when one of the students asked how they could make money and be successful. He answered the question by having the student look around the room. He then asked the student who he would choose if he could earn 10% of their income for life. Who…

One Goal

One Goal

One goal… hmmm… One goal can mean many things. USA could have used one more goal against Belgium in regulation to move onto the World Cup quarter finals. The St. Louis Rams should have never let the Patriots kick that one field goal in the 2002 Superbowl (still bitter). The Dallas Stars won the Stanley Cup in 2000 by “the goal,” thanks to Brett Hull. But, that’s all sports. I’m…

2013 – It’s Time (past time) For Serious Change

2013 – It’s Time (past time) For Serious Change

Not too long ago (a few years now) I counted up ALL of the jobs I have had since I got married in 1988.  It was quite pitiful. I don’t have that list anymore. I’m sure I burned it.  But, the total number of jobs was significantly higher than the years I had been married. Granted, some of my jobs I did simultaneously because I needed the extra income. Other…

Selling To Make More Money

One of the things I learned a long time ago when I first read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki is that you need to buy assets.  An asset, according to the book is something that PUTS money in your pocket. For example, you could buy a rental house that gives you rental income on a monthly basis. You could buy a website (virtual real estate) that generates a…
