What’s been a horrible month in the stock market has been an outstanding month for Funancials. If my investment portfolio had the growth of Funancials, I would have developed scoliosis from my unusually fat wallet. Although my spine didn’t need corrective surgery, I suffered much pain. Any number I glanced at seemed to be red (no longer my favorite color). The only time I welcomed it was in the chart below.
A Brief History
If you’re new to this site, my blog updates give you a look into my business.
With a career in finance and a growing desire to help people I thought it’d be worthwhile to create this blog circa March 2011. With the financial industry becoming more and more complex, the purpose of this blog was (and still is) to show that most of the concepts are rather simple.
I began by posting some of my favorite quotes and some clever cartoons whenever I had a minute. Anytime I get chance to poke fun at the government, I jump at the opportunity. As much fun as this was, I wasn’t doing what I sought out to do. You look at a cartoon and chuckle, but it doesn’t assist in the understanding. I decided to make a change.
The Best Move I Made
On August 7, 2011 I joined the Yakezie Challenge. If you forgot what the Challenge is all about, here’s a refresher. Joining the Yakezie Network was the best decision I could have made. The interactions I have had with like-minded bloggers have been invaluable.
Operation: Drop It Like It’s Hott
- Alexa Ranking Beginning of Yakezie Challenge: 1,700,000
- Alexa Ranking Beginning of this Month: 495,389
- Current Alexa Ranking: 198,796 <- BAM!
The Yakezie Challenge gives a blogger 6 months to drop below an Alexa ranking of 200,000. Having achieved this goal in 2 months, I’m ecstatic.
In a few days I will have a more detailed post outlining specific goals for the upcoming month. Thanks to everyone for reading.
