If you own a website, I’m going to guess that one of your greatest struggles is continuously writing blog content. I should know ... This week, MyMoneyDesign.com officially turns 6 years old. Can you believe it? And while I don’t have any ultra-impressive five or six-figure monthly income reports to share with you, I do celebrate the fact that we have a ton of blog content to offer you - over 500 posts (and counting)! But that’s not to say I haven’t had my fair-share of success either. Blogging over the years has been an incredible source of modest passive income; generating sometimes as much as four-figures of revenue each month. Earlier this year I even sold a few of my side-project niche sites for five-figures. That’s a … [Read more...] about My Practical Advice for Writing Blog Content That Matters
Lately I mentioned that I was working on a new niche site (if you’d like to call it that), and so I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce you to it. The site is called 1,000 Ways To Save, and by the time it matures, this site will literally be a collection of over one thousand different ways you can spend less and save more! The idea behind this 1000 Ways To Save is to challenge the excuse that I often hear people hiding behind when it comes to money: “Oh, I’d love to save more money towards [whatever goal], but you know … we’ve just got so many bills. I couldn’t possibly save another dollar”. Nonsense! There are thousands of (if not more) ways that each of us could do a better job saving our money. All it takes is a … [Read more...] about Introducing My New Site: 1,000 Ways to Save
Hello and welcome to the LONG overdue edition of my Niche Website update series. This is a very special write-up because it’s somewhat of a conclusion: The story of how I sold my websites, how much money they made, and what I will be doing next! But first … let’s go back to the beginning. Originally I had created these niche sites as a way to dive into the world of Internet Entrepreneurship. My goal was to use these websites to create multiple streams of passive income. And for a while, it worked! I was making a nice sum of money from the sites, and every month my progress seemed to be heading upward in the right direction. That was until 2015 when I discovered I had cancer. From that point on, everything changed. My health … [Read more...] about Niche Website Update 38 – How I Sold My Websites

Would you like to retire early, but are finding that the age 59-1/2 requirement is getting in the way? Age 59-1/2 is when the IRS says you can finally begin to access the hard-earned retirement savings you’ve got in your tax-sheltered accounts like your 401(k) and IRA.

In my twenties when I first started learning more about personal finance, I began to realize how powerful compounding returns were and started making strives to save more and more into my 401(k) and IRA every year. I kept … [Read more...] about Unlock Your Retirement Savings Before Age 59-1/2 to Retire Early With My New eBook
