Round Up

The Weekly Personal Finance Digest – Time To Reflect

Debt Roundup Personal Finance DigestTwo weeks ago, I celebrated my one year of blogging on Debt Roundup.  I got some great encouragement from many of your and I thank you for that.  As with any milestone, I like to reflect on what I have done and what I would like to do.  I am happy with what I have done, but I am trying to find the direction of what I want to do.  There are so many ideas in my head for this site and it’s purpose that it can be confusing at times.

After some deep thinking, I decided that I want to redesign Debt Roundup along with a logo change.  I think of it as a rebranding.  I am excited about it, but it also adds just another thing that I need to get done.  I love multitasking, but sometimes it can get a little out of hand.  Along with a new branding for the site, I am hiring a staff writer to handle a few articles a month.  I am also hiring a VA to help me keep up with some of the general tasks.

Hiring out work is something that I don’t like to do often because I lose a little control.  After months of pushing myself to finish more and more, I finally realized that I wasn’t doing myself any favors.  Hiring out some work is going to be the best for me and the site.  I will make sure to keep the quality that all my readers expect and the posting frequency should stay the same.

Hire Me

Yep, you see that correctly.  I started staff writing on another site a few months ago and I really have enjoyed it.  So much so, that I wanted to offer my services to anyone looking for a staff writer.  You know how I write, so if you think I will be a good fit, just contact me and I will be happy to talk with you.

I offer a wide range of services, so if you need anything else, make sure to check out my service offerings.  If you have wordpress issues, I can help.  If you need some blog work, then I can help.  If you need help with anything, feel free to reach out and I will see if I can help.

These Tools Changed My Financial Life

I use a lot of resources to make sure my financial life is in order. The tool and services I recommend have helped me be more efficient with my money and I'm sure they can help you as well.  Take some time to see if any of these resources can change your finances for the better!

I'm a business owner, blogger, father, and husband. I used credit cards too much and found myself in over $50,000 in debt. I paid it off, started this blog, and my financial life has changed. I now talk about fighting debt and growing wealth here. I run a blog management company, along with another blog. It is Empowered Shopper, which helps people get information about products they want to buy. You can also check out Eyes on the Dollar, which is a great blog that I co-own.

    Losing control is something I’ve always struggled with. Though growing and expanding beyond what you can handle on your own is a sure sign of success. Congrats! Marking the twitter chat in my calendar now.

      I like that I am growing enough to justify the loss of control, but I need to lock it down before it gets out of control.

    Congrats on a year of blogging, and good luck with the new adventures. I’ve been going back and forth between getting a VA to help out, so I’m curious to hear how it works out for you.

      Thank you Gary. I appreciate it. I haven’t pulled the trigger on the VA yet. I am still vetting candidates, but will post something when I do.
