The 5 Minutes a Day website is something that I have been wanting to do and share for years. Finally, I took the plunge and carved out my own "5 minutes" to capture the lessons I've learned. If you read my blog you've heard me say that 'being focused' is one of the keys to being successful. Even when we multitask we can only do one thing at a time. So, this blog is targeted and focused - make more money * work less * enjoy life™.
If you know me, you know that my mind never rests. I like to get things done. I like to try new things. And most of all, I like to succeed. While success may mean different things to different people we can all agree that winning is always better than losing. My desire for you is to minimize the times you lose.
My investments include (or have included) businesses, real estate and stocks. I love the Internet. The possibilities are endless. I have spent a great deal of time being a part of several start-ups. Out of a desire to learn everything I could about web hosting I started my own web hosting company over 15 years ago. I learned everything from managing servers to getting the website ranked at number 1 on Google. I also have a deep background with social media. Mokumax.com (scheduling and branding tweets) is one of my latest developments.
I married my high school sweetheart and we have 4 beautiful children. I regularly lead worship at my church and have released 4 independent CDs. As a musician I have toured internationally, appeared in several magazines and am still the reigning Guitar Wars champion of central Pennsylvania. I love to play ice hockey and am a sports nut in general.
I'm humbled that my latest book, How To Get Out Of Debt - A Biblical Approach To Living Debt-Free, has been on Amazon's top seller lists since it was released in December 2011. Currently, I'm working on the finishing touches to my new book about investing in real estate entitled, My Real Estate Nightmare. It's about how I turned an almost condemned 7 unit building into a money maker and walked away with over $100,000 when I sold it. Everything that could go wrong with that building did. It's a must read for anyone considering investing in real estate.
As you can tell I have a very diverse background and am always busy, yet, I still have time to have a quality family life, run a successful blog and business. While most of my posts and writings are personal and financially focused, you will also get a bit of marketing, social media and tips about blogging as well. I have taken 5 minutes a day to the extreme to learn and excel at many things. My hope is that you too will take just 5 minutes today and start becoming the best you can be!
Make it a great day!
