How is this Website Setup?

The idea behind building this website was to break it up into two equally important segments:

  1. The ever updating online book part of the site where you can find information pertaining to the subject you’re interested in.  The home page breaks the website up into 8 main categories (there are also numerous subcategories)… Think of those as chapters of a book.  My hope is that you will be able to earmark your favorite and most helpful posts and come back to them when you need help.  Gone are the days of the worn down book that has your favorite passages underlined.  But at the very least I can make it easy for you to find your way around.
  2. The blog which will be chronological and also include my random musings.  And based on what my wife has told me I have an excellent mind for randomness.  This will guarantee that there is always something new to come back for.

My intention was to make a website that had information that was stupid easy to find.  Mainly because that’s what works best for me.

The order of the categories is very important. No one wants to read the climax before the characters are built.  I decided to start the journey out slow and gain momentum until I hit a gorgeous finale. Those categories are:

  1. Money 101 : This is equivalent to dipping your toe into the world of financial know-how.  It’s trying a bike for the first time with your training wheels on.
  2. Spending & Saving : The cornerstone of any solid financial plan.  Aside from having won the lotto this is a must-know for anyone on their way to financial freedom. Actually having read about those who win the lotto this is probably good information for all sorts.
  3. Retirement : After you get all you affairs in order you need to start planning for the future.
  4. Investing : The confusing world of making your money work for you.
  5. Real Estate : Understanding the Ins and Outs of the biggest purchases of your lives.
  6. Business : A clusterbomb of information from building your own business to improving yourself at your current job.
  7. Relationships : Thinking with your heart and not your head.
  8. The finish line : What to do when you no longer need to worry about money (I’m not here yet, but a writer can dream dammit!)

The order was chosen to best emulate how I think money should be treated.  I don’t think it’s a good idea to invest in real estate before your retirement.  Skipping some categories are allowed (no need to make the superstars take the bench) but make sure you fully appreciate what you’re missing out on before skipping ahead too much.   Aside from all that jazz welcome to iinvesting.

tl;dr: Read lots, save money, live happy, enjoy the journey!
