Stuff I’ve Been Reading, Watching and Listening to Lately

I'm currently working on a hardcore, start to finish podcasting tutorial! I've already put in over 15 hours of work into writing and recording this tutorial, but I have much more to do so it's going to take a while before it's published. You can, however, watch the first video in the series of videos [...]

“I’m Fine, Thanks”

In January, my good friend Adam Baker from Man vs Debt asked me if I was interested in helping him out with a new project he was working on. In the online world, "project" could really mean anything - a new website, an info-product, a course, software, etc. - but this project was much different - [...]

Snapshots Of My New Office

It's amazing what a new workspace can do for motivation and getting things done. In the last 3 days that I've been working from my new home office, I've gotten so much done and I even have a new startup in the works, but I'll talk more about that later. That's not to say that [...]

This is For All the Turds Who Send Me Emails

As the popularity and traffic of the Smart Passive Income Blog grows, so does the number of emails I get in my inbox - and that's totally cool. I love reading emails and helping people out as much as I can, and thanks to those of you who shoot me a message just to say [...]

The Idea Room – White Markerboard Wall Plan

If you've read my January Monthly Income Report, you'll know that I'm in the middle of a move. I'm actually going to try and keep this post short because I have to go to our old apartment and re-paint some of the walls back to their original color. Bah! Anyways, as stressful as the move [...]

The Worst Decade Ever?

Happy New Year to each and every one of you. With the recent arrival of our new baby boy, my wife and I decided it would be a neat idea to keep a newspaper from his date of birth, and some magazines about the era in which he was born. As I was looking through [...]

I'm writing this blog post on my iPhone, using the Wordpress 2 iPhone app. Isn't technology amazing? If this post doesn't come out right or you see a superfluous amount of spelling errors, you'll know why. The reason I'm on my iPhone is because I'm at the hospital with my wife.
