Once you know where you want to be, for better or for worse, the next step is to get there. I created this blog as a way to document my efforts and the process in getting there, as well as a way to put structure to my thinking in a public way that no other medium offers. (Blogs are great for that!)

So over the last couple of years, I’ve done a lot of reading (ever the student) to try and figure out how to get from here (small time investor) to there (angel investor, implying financially independent at least) . One of the good books on this subject (and there are a lot, but this one is good mostly because it was free!) is The One Minute Millionaire by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen. These guys are very good at providing real world examples of people who did it, and motivation, which seems to be most of the solution to getting wealthy from their standpoint – just working up the courage to jump in and get started. And like I mentioned, it was free, so you can’t beat the price.
