My Wealth Hacker™ story
I knew there had to be a better way.
Something different and unprecedented.
Something my friends and family wouldn’t quite understand.
Something I was hesitant to share at networking functions and public gatherings because most people wouldn’t get it.
Making money is something anyone can do.
But how do you make MORE money than you can comprehend and do so in a fashion that is fun, cutting-edge, and seems effortless?
Failures do not define me. I charge ahead determined to make my future bigger than my past.
Introducing Wealth Hacking
Wealth Hackers™ look at life through a different lens.
They might not know exactly where they are going or what their future holds, but they are committed to the belief there is something bigger and better out there.

Entreprenuer in the making…. Tried to sell baseball cards on my grandma’s front porch. Didn’t sell one.
I needed extra cash for the summer so I decided to flip burgers at McDonald’s.
Dropped out of college, landed a data-entry job at my mom’s company.
Joined the Army National Guard because my life was going nowhere.
Racked up over $30k of credit card and student loan debt even though the military paid for my school and I worked 20 hours per week.
3rd month of being a financial advisor and my take-home pay for the month was $841. The only reason I survived was because I was driving my grandma’s 1998 Chevy Lumina “The Lu” and still shared a house with 3 of my buddies from college.
Read Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Rocked my world.
Attempted 1st MLM. Bought a lot of vitamins but bank account was still very unhealthy since I didn’t make any money.
Got shipped to Iraq for a what I called a “Fun vacation in the sand.” Made it back safe but didn’t learn my lessons with MLM so tried again. Different company, same lack luster result.
Attempted 1st real estate deal. Remember bragging to friend I would own 12+ properties in 1 year. Almost lost my butt on the 1st deal and that ended my real estate empire.
Conducted several planning meetings with a potential partner about launching a marathon race in our area. I hate running so that makes sense. Nothing happened.
My brokerage firm gets bought out. I receive an offer from Merrill Lynch to start a new firm in my area with a $198,000 bonus attached to it. My existing firm offers me $40,000 just to stay put. What did I do instead?
I turned down both offers and left to co-found my investment firm.
Later that year I read an article in a financial planner magazine about how creating a blog is the best thing you can do to differentiate yourself. I’m all in! Except I really don’t know what a blog is and I’ve never been on social media.
July of 2008 GoodFinancialCents.com is born.
I make my first $100 from Google Adsense in Jan 2009.
Adsense has grown from $100 to $4,392.74. Game on.
I form my own wealth management firm to get away from compliance so I can focus more on my blog. I gave up $36k of recurring revenue to make that switch but I knew it would grow exponentially. It did.
Through a cold email I get an offer of $150k cash to buy my blog. Sounds tempting but I know I’m on a mission that isn’t done so I respectfully decline.
I read 4 Hour Work Week and within a few months I hire my 1st virtual assistant.
My book, Soldier of Finance, is published. I launched my life insurance niche site and within 9 months it’s on pace to make $100k in revenue. Online income reaches $115k for the entire 2012 year. It has 3x’d in only 2 years.
Online business revenue reaches 55% of my financial planning practice revenue.
Online revenue almost triples reaching $730,000. I finally crack $100k in revenue in one month of all of my business combined. I reduce the hours in the office to 16 hours per week.
Online revenue surpasses $1.5 million. Total business revenue exceeds $2 million. I reduce my hours in the office to less than 8 hours per week before moving to Nashville and becoming a location independent CEO.
Online revenue exceeds $200k in one month for the 1st time. I receive and turn down an offer to sell my blog for $10 million. Why? Because my mission hasn’t been completed yet.
