“Dominate your day before breakfast” may sound intimidating, but it’s really not.
That’s been Jeff Sanders’ motto for his podcast, and now for his book.
The idea is that you can accomplish a lot with little effort, if you change a few habits.
I’ve been listening to Jeff’s show, The 5AM Miracle podcast, for a few years now. It made my top podcasts list and it continues to be one of the only podcasts that I listen to every time a new episode is available.
Jeff finally (I’ve been waiting!) put his expertise into words and released a book…an extremely awesome, useful, direct, practical and applicable book, if I do say so myself…and I do.
Here’s some insight into his book, The 5AM Miracle…
After months of research, I’ve finally decided to switch MoneyMiniBlog to a new web hosting company.
I was so excited about this company that I had to share how awesome they’ve been.
Whether you’re looking for a web host, already with a web host or even if you don’t have a website yet, you need to see why this company is the best. This is an important change for MoneyMiniBlog. Not only will this site load faster and be more secure, but you won’t ever have to worry about it being down when you visit.
If you have a site or ever plan to have a site, you can save yourself the research and take advantage of all the work I’ve put in to finding the best web host. Here are all the details…
Sure, you can set an automatic transfer from your checking to your savings each month, but with that you still have to set the transfer amount.
With Digit, you don’t even have to do that.
It’s an intelligent service that not only saves your money automatically, but it determines how much to save by how much you can afford. You literally just link your account and forget about it. Digit does all the work for you.
I had a few questions, so I set up an interview with the founder of Digit. Here’s what I figured out and how you can use Digit for automatic savings…
There are many tools to help your find the perfect credit card.
Some of those tools cost money, this one is free, but there are other free tools like this.
So, what makes it so special?
It’s more than just a tool, it’s a goldmine of resources on finding credit cards, improving your credit, fixing mistakes on your credit report and ultimately helping your get the best credit score possible.
So let’s dive in…
What is Credit Sesame?
Sure, they are a credit monitoring service, like Credit Karma and many others, but that’s not all.
They offer more than the other credit monitoring services I’ve seen, while still keeping it free.
What do they offer, you ask? A free credit score, free credit monitoring and free identity theft protection.
Free identity theft protection? That’s right! And they actually offer even more than that.
Let me give you a quick breakdown, then I’ll let you go try it out. After all, it is free…
There are many ways to get all your accounts in one place.
There are also ways to automate your budget.
Mint.com comes to mind.
Your bank may even offer online banking that budgets for you and allows you to add outside accounts to your dashboard.
That’s all great. I love automation. But I’ve found the cream of the crop.
All your accounts in one place? Check. An effective automatic budgeting system? Check. And that’s not all they do.
Personal Capital is great for budgeting, but it’s really great for investing!
Let me show you what sets Personal Capital apart from the rest…
When I see a book about making money, I’m tempted to buy it. Every time.
I’m always interested in finding ways to earn extra cash and I like to find new ideas to write about.
I’m even more of a sucker for books about making money from home.
Who doesn’t want to know more ways to earn money sitting in their pajamas, instead of commuting for hours a day?
I’ll be honest, I’ve read some terrible books about working from home. In fact, it seems like most of the books I’ve read about working at home were exactly that…terrible.
I’ve seen tips like “start a business” or “create a website”. Wow, that’s a great idea, except they didn’t explain how to do either one or where to find more information about getting started. It’s way too generic and broad.
Finally, I’ve found a breath of fresh air in a sea of money-making mysteries. In other words, I’ve found a darn good book about earning money from home…
I am a huge fan of the envelope budgeting system.
I think it’s a great way to stay organized and keep your budget simple.
I have written several articles on budgeting.
I have even written on how to live without a budget.
Now it’s time that I show you what I personally use for budgeting.
I use Goodbudget (formerly EEBA). This is a website and a smart phone app. A digital envelope budgeting system.
There is a free and a paid version.
Let’s take a look at what Goodbudget has to offer…
