I Don’t Need Your Money

I never thought anything like this would happen.


The last 10 or 15 years have been taken up with the normal life struggles of trying to survive while taking care of family members and paying the mortgage.

I was trying to make a buck like everyone else.

Then everything changed.

The short version of the story starts with a phone call from a lawyer.

His client wants to buy a domain name I owned.

We settle on the price of $200,000.

Next, my wife inherits a house which we sell for $1,100,000.

That’s “one point one million”.

Since it’s an inheritance, there is no tax on it.

We Spent Money.

We paid off debts, fix up the house, invest in some solid investments.

We bought a cabin in the mountains. This is officially part of “living the dream”.

We also bought a 1955 Chevy Bel Air, 2 door, Sport Coupe.


We are Christians and believe in “tithing”, which is giving 10% of your income back to charity.

My choice was to pay for a “Sand Dam” and water well in Kenya.

This is a photo of the actual project that we paid for.

Those are the people that we impacted.

Please read about it and make your own donation. You can make any size donation.

I mean, this is literally saving lives and changing the world.

My wife loves donkeys, so her choice was to buy 40 donkeys through World Vision.

If you want to buy someone a chicken or a bunny, this is the place to do it.

Please click here and donate to World Vision.

Again, saving lives and changing the world.

How cool is that?

Oh, and we got a dog.

His name is Domino.

(Note the name tag.)

Coolest dog in the world.

Border Collie mix.

Adopted from a rescue.

What’s Next?

We have money left over.

Now, a million bucks isn’t what it used to be.

I can’t say that all of our money problems are over for the rest of our lives, but we should be fine for a for a few years at least.

My point in telling you all this is that I want you to believe me when I say:

I Don’t Need Your Money.

I have an opportunity that most people never get.

I can start a business and if I don’t make money, I don’t care.

Anything I do now, will be for free.

My immediate goal is to try stuff and see what works.

I love to teach and write and help people.

I haven’t been paying close attention to SEO for the last year, so I’ll get caught up on that.

The SEO world has changed a bunch in 2011 and I’ve been personally impacted by those changes.

(I’ll tell you that story later.)

I DO Need Your Help!

You can help me by telling me what you need.

It’s about time to get this party started again and I need you to tell me how I can help you.

I’ll be sitting on the cabin porch, waiting.

  1. I had been wondering what had become of you…now I know, and it’s all good. I am not organized enough to know what I need to know, but always enjoy your posts and manage to pick up useful info from them.

    I am a psychotherapist (20 years) turned coach. I have worked the last 10 years for a 100m publically traded medical device manufacturer in the business development group). Long story…
    I am 59 and looking to get back out on my own as a personal coach. I have created a brand (Big Fat Happiness) have a clear vision of what I want to create but am freaked out with two professional website development proposals. 36k from one and 10k from another who wants to use WordPress. I need an expert that will shoot straight with me about true costs. Sounds like you might be that guy?? David Ruch 847-209-6531. Coachruch@gmail.com

    Hi Conrad,

    I need all the help I can get. What I really like is a chat connection but in lieu of that then e-mail is good too. At one point I thought you had a deal where for $60.00 you would evaluate a website and give suggestions. That would be great. It’s taken me a couple of years to get this site up and running and it’s definitely a work in progress. I’ve had one obstacle after another to overcome but I finally did it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You are absolutely amazing – your post is inspiring (and actually gave me goosebumps:) Love the house, love the cars and cabin – especially love Domino! But most of all I love the selfless giving of your *windfall* of cash to help others. Such very good causes to those who need it the most. Something we should all aspire to do in our lives. Thanks for sharing with us!

    I wondered why I hadn’t heard from you. Wow ,what amazing things you have done for others. As for me I still haven’t found my way back from my failed ceramic business.I have been reading about this n that way to make money via the internet but nothing seems to fit me.I’m still down in the dumps and don’t know how to get out, so anything you can show me will be greatly appreciated. Fortunately I never quit my day job.

    You are a millionaire! Even if you already bought that gorgeous house and that cool car and gave 10% of you money to charity, you are still a millionaire at heart! Thank you for helping the poor. God bless you both!

  7. Glad you are back! I just got an email from someone about SEO ‘not being dead.’ I didn’t know things had changed! Hope you will get us informed on that. Reasonably priced e-oooks, community forum would be great. But the podcast stuff won’t help me because I don’t have it. I am still sitting here without a website, only an etsy shop, because I get so confused. Also, I can’t find the layout that will work best for my needs. Need ideas on how to advertise, aside from social media. I hope that I will be getting your newsletter emails.

    PS: Love the car. My mom had a car like that and put it in a demo derby back in the 70’s, which is horrible, I know. But the driver stayed on the outskirts and played it safe, so it survived the derby and was still streetworthy!
