Mark This Down and Watch Me

Edit: I gave up on financial goals in late 2011 after some huge financial and artistic wins... money shouldn't be taken too seriously. For the record, they were all basically on track, some were being massively exceeded, others were a bit behind schedule, but were all happening.

I set my next 10 years of financial goals on June 28th. That was exactly a month ago.

1 year - Critical Thinking [my first book] out. Blog income trickling. Some info products. Some freelancing. Something else, some X-Factor thing bringing in cash. Net monthly income positive. Health insurance. $50,000 in the bank. Expenses = income per month minimum.

3 years - 3 to 5 books out, many products out, blog income robust, some working on big exciting deals. $10,000 per month total, $5000 passive at least. First property owned. $300,000 in the bank.

5 years - 7-10 books out, many many products out, many passive income internet properties, working on big exciting things, $50,000 per month total, $40,000 passive at least. $1,000,000 in the bank.

On to chase or to hunt

I want to thank the assholes, bullies, teachers who turned a blind eye, kids who stole my clothes from my gym locker, everyone who thought I was a lesbian (I believe the term dyke was popular at that time), called me a whore, cunt, slut (seriously, I was a virgin until my 20's), and anyone else who made my teenage years a living hell. This includes the friends who did nothing to stop it, the family who didn't believe it, and the councilor who told me to deal with it.

Thank you.

Thank you for being the catalyst that propelled me to personal, financial, educational, and emotional success. It was your generosity and attention that fueled much of my art, writing, photography, friendships, and life choices.

You'll never know just how much it means to me that you hated yourselves enough to care.
