Back from Mexico, Just Want to Say Thanks to Nicholas

Blogging, Investing No Comments »

Last week, our Church went on a missions trip to Monterrey, Mexico. This trip was a special blessing for me, as our Pastor had me preach on Tuesday night, and it was my first time to preach. The people in those Churches have a close relationship with each other and God. And seeing some of the conditions they live in, it really speaks of their faith and love for God.

But I just want to give a big thanks to Nicholas, as he took over for me while I was gone, and brought some very different topical financial help to Personal Finance Resources. Nicholas is a rouge stock market and options investor, and makes (typically) between 15-40% profit per year (currently he is investing fairly conservatively) on his investments. So I really thought that he was an excellent fill-in during my absence.

At Personal Finance Resources, we really are striving to give you tips and information that have been tested successfully by the authors delivering the material. So when you are looking at an article published here, understand that the context is that of real people actually doing the particular strategy outlined. There have been thousands of dollars and years of time invested in the techniques covered in this blog, so sign up for the RSS feed so that you can get this information automatically and free of cost (these strategies cost thousands of dollars at seminars and other educational institutions).

The Decision to Retire Young

Blogging 1 Comment »

It comes as a tragedy, I know. But I am finally going to go for my dream. I want to have time and money for the ministry of the gospel of Christ, and working a full time Just-Over-Broke will not allow me to do so. I have some steady income with rental properties, property management, a technical service contract, and a few websites, and am ready to step it up to the next level. I figure that I will have a short fall of somewhere around $500-1000 per month. I have some cash reserved, and can survive for at least a few months while trying to up my income.

I have always strove to own and operate my own business, or businesses. Multiple streams of income in different markets is a very attractive proposition. Lose one, you still have the others. I can remember as a young teen, I think I was maybe 15 or 16 years old, being introduced to the concept of your own business and the chance at financial freedom. It is time I try my hand. So on November 9th, 2007 I will end my job, and head out on my own.

I am an entrepreneur at heart, and welcome any ideas from the Personal Finance Resources user community. I know there are other real estate investors out there like me, and your ideas and opinions are invaluable. If there are any webmasters looking for a trade, a link, or any other type of deal, feel free to use the email link to the left and drop me a line.

What is an RSS Feed?

Blogging 6 Comments »

Personal Finance Resources RSS FeedYou’ll notice that after every article on my page, as well as on the sidebar of this site, there is a link and icons inviting you to sign up for an RSS feed to this site. If you’re a newbie to the whole thing, and aren’t quite sure what an RSS feed is, or how great a tool it can be for you, then you are really missing out. RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is just that, a really simple way to start receiving feeds from your favorite websites for all of your favorite content. Simply put, it’s like signing up for our mailing list, but even better. When one of your favorite websites’ post a new article to their site, you will receive an automatic, real time update of the article, saving you the time of going to each one of your favorite sites to see if anything is new. There are several different ways you can receive these feeds, and you get to choose whatever works best for you.  These are defined in more detail below.

First of all, all RSS feeds are collected by means of a feed reader. A feed reader is software which tracks the different feeds you have signed up for, and allows you to collect multiple feeds in one place or webpage. If you go to, you can sign up for a free account and have all of your RSS feeds come to that site for you to read at your discretion and in your own time.

Another way to read your favorite RSS feeds: If you’ll notice in the side bar, next to the big orange button, there are many other buttons such as “Add to Google”, “My Yahoo!”, “My AOL”, and “Newsgator”. By clicking on one of these buttons, you can have my RSS feed go directly into your favorite page, or whichever one you use the most. For example, my main email is Yahoo!, and therefore I would add the feed to My Yahoo!, so that whenever a new post was added to my favorite site, I can quickly look at my page and see if there is anything new.

Another great option, and one that I use personally is to receive feeds directly into your email account. To do this, simply click on the orange RSS feed button, and select “Get Personal Finance Resources delivered to my Inbox”, enter your email address and verification, and the feed will be delivered straight into your email. Most people check their email every day, and having it right there is a huge time saver. You can short cut this method by filling in your email address under the section in the sidebar of my website called “Subcribe by Email”.

RSS feeds are great, and quickly gaining in popularity. They mainly started with the blogging community, and its thought that they will really take off in the next few years. Now, instead of spending time surfing the internet,  people will discover the ease and efficency of having their favorite website’s deliver articles directly to them.
