A Couple of Things

I know I’ve been gone for just a little bit. This should be taken care of as soon as I get a couple more SEO clients under my belt (I’m trying to make bank). Thanks for staying with me and I’ll be sure to get some great information out to you soon.

A couple of things

1. I’m in the Sweet 16 in the Free Money Finance March Money Madness. If you wouldn’t mind clicking here, it would be great if I could get a vote from you for one of my older passionate posts that I wrote. It’s in game 2. To vote just comment with the word “Habits”. Thanks to anyone that helps out…I Love You :)

2. I didn’t get a chance to highlight this yet but Jesse at Pianoing.com finished up one of my favorite songs Piano Man by Billy Joel. Click on that link to see it and be sure to check out this months song titled “Let it be”, another one of my favorites.

and the last thing I’d like to mention is Tumblr. I don’t use it but I hear it’s something that will really take up your time and entertain you forever. The reason I bring it up is because my fiancée is on it and I finally found out the power it has. It can really help your site/video go viral. I found this little gem and a couple of the comments were “If you found this on tumblr thumbs up”. It already has over 100,000 views and growing at a fast rate. This movie came out last year but it’s going viral now because of tumblr. Plus it’s hilarious.

So start your week off with laughter, and have a great week.

Why I Changed Direction

Changed Direction

There are times in our lives where we have to make a choice to stay the course or veer right. I chose to veer.

I started Financially Poor to help people get their finances together. It was fun for a while and I got several emails from readers thanking me for helping them. That was all I ever wanted and it felt great knowing I was helping people.

The problem was that I was becoming disinterested in the content. I didn’t like writing about different ways to save money because there’s only so many ways you can say pay yourself first.

I applaud all the PF blogs out there that are able to write on a wider variety of PF topics than I can. I just didn’t want to go deeper into it.

I lost the passion

So a few weeks ago I started to work on the new Financially Poor after stumbling onto a new to me blog Mars Dorian. He was a big part in getting me to actually show my true voice. Follow him @MarsDorian, I do.

So with my true voice shouting, I decided I was going to take Financially Poor to a new angle. The angle of making money Doing What You Want.

I started to reflect on life and I soaked up a lot of ideas about how we as a society hold a job as the end all be all of making money. Why?

I don’t feel it has to be that way. You don’t have to trade your time for money. You can learn to leverage less time for more money.

The catalyst that sparked the dramatic change was me losing my job last Monday.

It’s one of the most relieving days of my life. I just felt such a weight off of my shoulders and I’m so much more motivated.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve made a lot of changes around here with the design and I even changed the tagline to “Your Guide To Living Your Passion On Any Income”

I changed it to that because I know that no matter what your situation or income, you can Live Your Passion and make money doing it.

You don’t have to quit your job, but I do hope that I can convince you to not put your passion on hold until it’s too late to live it.

If it’s truly your passion, then nothing can stop you except yourself.

It’s my new goal for Financially Poor to change as many peoples lives that I can by helping people to live their passion and not let their lives slip away.

You only have 1, so use it wisely. Don’t let society say you can’t….You Can!

Go Live Your Passion!
