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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you want to be more specific, please leave me a comment or send me an email through the contact form.
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.
