I AM NOT THROWING AWAY MY SHOT

Yes, I watched Hamilton on Disney +.

I would not call myself a “big risk taker.” I would also not consider myself an expert in the wizardy of spelling and grammar either…and that will become very evident in future postings. I tend to play things safe. I have a “traditional” college degree, and I have a “traditional” job. But, at the ripe old age of 30 years I am afraid that if I do not begin taking more risks to try to better myself and my family that I will look back on my life and have several regrets. That is the catalyst that has started me down what I have dubbed “The Road to 1 Million”.

What follows is my thesis statement for this whole experiment. My reasoning is that if I can live off my current salary, while still maintaining a 6 month emergency fund and minimal debt (thanks Dave Ramsey), I can use passive income to raise my $1,000,000 (it will actually need to be a little more of that to make sure I don’t meet the foe that took Wesley Snipes down…because if he can’t win I sure can’t).

My goal is to use this blog track the different sources of passive income that I research and attempt to give an unbiased look at their effectiveness. I acknowledge that what works for others might not work for me, and that is ok; I just need to find my own personal groove.

I am not throwing away my shot.
