Today I’ve made a few changes to the navigation bar of the site. This is in light of determining where the site is going and the things I enjoy learning about. After all this blog is mostly about my journey and the things I’d like to share along the way.
I think each navigation button sums up an area of interest I have, and is broad enough to probably create its own website. However, they’re all interrelated and I’d like to especially focus on how they tie together in my own life. This means that I’ll have a lot of writing to do and will never run out of content ideas! It also means that the site could probably get pretty big.
The four categories I’m focused primarily on are:
- Personal Finance
- Real Estate
- Mobile Living
At the moment I’m also considering tossing in Personal Development as well. Thoughts?
Here’s my explanation for each:
Personal Finance building wealth 101, which covers budgeting, buying your first house, investing in your 401k, and a myriad of other basic finance topics. These are highly important as they create the base of a sound financial situation. Conquering these lessons and topics allow you to understand money, saving, investing, and other concepts that aren’t exactly exciting, but are necessary on your path to financial freedom. Folks who aren’t good at managing their money or have yet to begin planning their journey should probably start here before they progress to the other sections.
In order to become financially well off most people start businesses. In order to become wealthy instead of simply rich, (as I discussed yesterday), assets are the way to build continuous wealth. I’d like to use this section to highlight what makes entrepreneurs successful, along with highlighting businesses that I will start, and concepts that will be useful when starting your own business.
This investment class has a ton to discuss on it’s own. Whether it’s how to get into your first deal, discussing how to analyze the numbers, or the market as a whole; Real estate is a broad topic. Real estate investing seems a bit like the wild west of investing since it’s so unique and full of opportunity. It’s also one of the most forgiving asset classes over a long range of time. There’s also a huge difference between home ownership and investing in real estate. I will mostly be covering the latter.
One of my current goals is to lead a mobile lifestyle. In particular that of a digital nomad. Being a digital nomad ties in with the concept of entrepreneurship, but also delves further into things like where should I live? What should I do when having this freedom? Along with where in the world I can get the most bang for my buck? As an American my dollar can go a lot further in many other parts of the world, but where are these countries that are best for a digital nomad? I plan on examining a large portion of countries around the world from a cost of living perspective, interviewing current digital nomads, and eventually chronicling my own journey into mobile living.
Although each of these topics are completely different on face value, they’re all interconnected, which is why I feel comfortable discussing them all on this site. In the end they’re all linked by one thing – money.
So what are your thoughts? Do you think this is an appropriate way to organize the site, or is it too broad?
Do you think I should Personal Development should make the list as well?
