If the secret to being happy is to learn how to appreciate the small things, then I’ve got something for you. How about being happy with absolutely nothing? As in: zero?
Truth of the matter is, zero in this case doesn’t mean nothing at all. It’s a major milestone for us, and one I never dreamed of achieving at this point. As from last week, our net worth is estimated at zero rather than tens of thousands in the negative. So it’s a zero that means the world to me.
I’m proud to present you with the first guest post ever on From Cost To Coast!
We have a special visit from John Ryan who has his own blog over at Moneytimeblog.com, where he writes on virtually every money-related topic. From investing to financial independence, from frugal living to real estate, John knows his stuff.
What would you do… if I were to tell you… that I knew about some investments that will provide you with enormous returns, no strings attached and guaranteed?
That these investments would cost you hardly anything but are worth their metaphorical weight in gold?
You would probably tell me to shove it where the sun don’t shine, because that’s the sort of people you are. You are smart and hard to be fooled, but above all you are your own damn experts.
But trust me on this one. When it comes to great revenue for little monetary input, I know my stuff. I will tell you all about the investments I made (or didn’t make but wish I did) when we hardly had the money to change a broken lightbulb.
Investments that you may have overlooked but that are always worth it, because no matter how rough the going gets, they will pay off.
The interwebz seems to be all about mornings these days. You’re definitely not one of the cool kids if you don’t get up at half past four, run a few miles, practice yoga, meditate, learn a new language and write 5000 words while sipping your homemade organic coffee. All before rest of society wakes up and leaves for work, obviously.
