If you follow all the steps in my couch potato cash, $375/month is typical. 85% of side-gig workers make less than $500 a month. And of all the side-gig platforms, Airbnb hosts earn the most by far. Continue reading

We moved to a tiny house in 2015 and got rid of the tent, portable toilet, and other camping gear. I thought we were done with primitive camping until I was inspired by the videos below. Tried it out this past week (1 private campground and 2 national park campgrounds) and it has more benefits than costs! Little setup or tear-down. Bad weather like snow doesn't collapse the tent or freeze us all night long. Prius acts like a power generator. Music in the car does not affect the neighbors. Inspires others to think outside the box. Can arrive at your site later and can leave at checkout. And no worries like you have with an RV (fuel costs, tricky roads, grey water). Continue reading

AIM is an investment method devised by the late Robert Lichello. This method is a proven way to take advantage of the inevitable market swings to enable us to ‘Buy Low / Sell High’. Groundrules of how the AIM Strategy works: When starting with a lump sum, only invest 50% from the start. If establishing a monthly investment plan, also split this allocation to 50% invested (after all, there’s a 50/50 chance the market will go up OR down tomorrow!) Utilize a cash account to maintain your investment reserves / gains, awaiting further investment (starting with the second 50% of your lump sum, and then including the proceeds from sales as well as 50% of any subsequent monthly investment.) Be prepared to sell a portion of the gains you have realized and deposit them into your cash account, per the AIM algorithm. Be prepared to buy some back with your... Continue reading

Of course FED money printing, stock buybacks, and mergers play a huge role in sending stocks higher, but the number one factor is the way market averages are manipulated! The components of the S&P 500 update periodically. Between 1/1/2005 and 1/1/2015, 188 index components were replaced by other components. In other words, drop the companies going bankrupt and replace them with companies in their growth phase. Continue reading

I'm seeing natural gas at $4.00 by December. Play it with UGAZ. Here are my reasons: La Nina will increase the number of tropical storms in the Atlantic, which has been on the quiet side for the past three seasons. During one week last month, the country used up a little of its gas reserves for the first time during a summer in 10 years, according to a report released Monday by the U.S. Department of Energy. It became cheaper for power plants to burn gas than coal. In April last year, natural gas generated more electricity than coal in the U.S. for the first time in decades. U.S. Natural Gas Drilling Rig Statistics Current natural gas drilling rigs: 86 Active rig count one year ago: 223 Rig Peak (hit on 9/12/08): 1,606 Peak natural gas is coming plus depletion rates show a steep drop off Continue reading

Don't assume that the local newspaper or Craigslist have the best listings. After talking to a colleague who found a room to rent off Facebook, I started doing my research. Facebook is the best. It's like word of mouth on steroids. What you need to do is find YOUR LOCAL GROUPS. Below are mine: Continue reading
