What I Learned Having Roommates

What I Learned Having RoommatesHello! Enjoy this blog post from a blog friend of mine. As you know, I’m all about having roommates in order to lower your expenses. Here’s what Adam has learned from having roommates.

I’ve always had roommates.

Since the day I got to college, I’ve been splitting rooms, apartments and houses with a long parade of strangers (college just puts you with somebody), friends, fraternity brothers, and acquaintances. Some of them have worked out great. They were phenomenal roommates and have become lifelong friends. Others were complete disasters, even if they were nice people.

Personalities can clash, ideas about cleanliness can vary significantly, and other issues that never occurred to you can pop up.

When I graduated college and started my career, I really didn’t have to have a roommate. I was living in a low cost part of the country, making a solid salary, and could have easily afforded a 1 bedroom apartment or even a house with a bit of savings. 

Instead, I just kept the streak alive. My first apartment was a 2-bedroom, 1 bath, in an older complex. It wasn’t fancy, but it was 5 minutes from work, in a decent neighborhood, and only cost $600 a month (that is not a typo). I didn’t know anyone in my new city, so I started out living solo, but as I made friends, I found another guy looking for a place to live. Once we hit it off, he moved in and my bills instantly dropped by half. For the next year, I spent $300 on rent and maybe another $150 on utilities and internet.  [Read more…]

Are You Interested In Traveling The World And Working At The Same Time?

How To Become A Digital Nomad, Work Remotely & Location IndependentBefore I started running my online business full-time, I had a desk job where I received a couple of weeks of vacation a year. Before that, I worked in a position for over five years which gave me no vacation time whatsoever. 

While I realize that not everyone receives vacation time, I knew having limited traveling time was not good enough for me.

Even though I have to work while I’m traveling since I’m location independent, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Being able to work remotely is a dream!

I enjoy traveling, seeing new places, and being able to work at the same time. Being a “digital nomad” isn’t perfect, but it is a lot of fun!

Just in 2015 I have traveled to the states of Nevada, California, Washington, Wyoming, Utah, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and, of course, the states of Colorado and Missouri. I have been on the road for the majority of the year and I don’t plan on that changing anytime soon.

In fact, I’m currently looking at the beautiful Jackson Lake and the mountains (in Grand Teton National Park) while typing this post.

Many of you seem to be interested in possibly living the location independent lifestyle as well. I know it’s a dream for many, but there are things to think about. Being location independent still means that you have to work and earn money!

How I Made $25,138 Online In July Plus My 4 Year Blogiversary

Monthly Online Income Report July (1)Welcome to July’s online income report where I show you how I made money online last month. It’s time to look at this month’s update and track how I did.

If you’re new here, you may be wondering why I would want to publish my online income report each month. You can simply skip to the next section if you are not new here.

This all started out as my extra income report because in the beginning it was all about the money I was earning from my side jobs. In my side income reports from the beginning, I included all of the income I made except for what I made at my day job (that was a fixed amount).

However, I left my day job as a financial analyst in October of 2013 and now my monthly income reports consist of the many ways I make a living each month.

Many people have asked why I would ever want to publicly post my income each month. Some think I’m crazy, whereas some are glad I’m open about what I’m doing. Whatever you think, I enjoy publishing my monthly online income reports and I share them publicly for three main reasons: [Read more…]

Lately, I have been asked quite frequently from readers about legitimate companies that allow you to complete paid surveys at home. It’s hard to know what’s legitimate and what’s not since there are so many different scams out there.

However, not all are scams. One that I would like to review today is ProOpinion and they are a legitimate survey company.
