In this blog many of my posts have been off-topic. Well from now on I am going to make a concerted effort to stay with the program. The program is how to obtain enough wealth to retire early. When I say retire, I don't mean move into an assisted living facility and knit all day. I don't even now how to knit. I mean I would be free to work or not work, if I wanted to and when I wanted to. Besides saving money from my full-time job and investing it, there are many other ways that I attempt to make money. It is called making multiple streams of income, and the best type of income stream to have is passive income. With passive income you do not physically have to be on the job 8 hours a day. Most bloggers know that if they have AdSense or other ads on their blog, then they could be making money any hour of the day. We have all seen the ad that says "I made x amount of dollars in my sleep".
So, I have been using this multiple stream of passive income model to obtain my goal of retiring early. I also invest in the stock market, buy municipal bonds when the deal is right, and have several websites. You should enhance your financial education by reading, listening to financial recordings, and attending seminars. This is important, not only for the financial education but the motivation as well. It is too easy to just stay in the rat race and say its too hard to start my own business or businesses. One person, who's books I have enjoyed reading is Robert Kiyosaki. I have learned a lot from his writings and tomorrow I am actually going to a free Launch your Business workshop, taught by his company. I am very excited about this opportunity. So from now on I am going to try to stay on topic here, without being boring. I am sure I will add news other than financial or business from time to time but the main goal of this blog is to discuss how to get out of the rat race.
