Hi. My name is Caleb. I am 24, still in college and working full-time to survive in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. I am embarking on a journey of wits and determination in a world much unknown to myself. I have been living a rather mediocre life, and as things seem to get more and more mundane I can't help but to look for something more. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who feel the same and are waiting for someone to show them a way out. I can't guarantee that everyone reading this will get rich, but what I can promise is that I will be completely honest as I embark on this journey. Hopefully, as I learn these lessons of fortune, I can help others on their way to the top.
This is day one: It's 6:38pm (according to the clock on my computer) Friday, October 3, 2008. I suppose I should start from scratch. Hopefully everyone, if anyone, that follows can better connect the dots for themselves this way.
And the bitter beginning is I currently have -$38.05 in my bank account. I made a slight miscalculation and overdrafted my account by $3.05, which in turn caused the bank to charge a $35 overdraft fee. Ooooouchh!
Luckily, I get paid on Monday!
My goal is not to just make some extra money, but to completely transform my financial situation and perspective, and hopefully show others how to do the same. I will continue to post, addressing relevant topics, and updating my story of how I made it to the top.
