Happy New Year!  Now that the parties are over, it’s time to review your achievements from last year, the things you want to do better, and what you’re no longer going to do.

But how do you know whether these goals are leading you to a place you want to go?

With that in mind, here is a great article to get your mind going now that your hangover is subsiding: How To Do What You Love (Paul Graham)

  • DRN Dividend Record Date: Dec-27-2010
  • DRN Dividend Pay Date: Dec-30-2010
  • DRN Dividend Amount Current: $ 0.0542

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Investing for Cashflow – Up and at ’em

Well…it is official.

I have reached the next step in my journey towards financial independence: public shaming!

Only joking.  Actually, I’m really looking forward to sharing my successes, failures, and lessons learned on this blog.  I know there are people out there who are further along in their journey, as well as those that are just started.

To that end, this site will focus on generating paper income from online investing.  Sure, I have other things in the works, but those are for a different site.

For now, lets just have some fun making money!
