I tried to ask a few of these questions in the original thread I started a four months ago, but they were ignored and the thread didn't get bumped to the top of the community as it appears others do.
Tynan, I realized that Texas doesn't allow peer lending. Did you have a
way of working around this when you started or were you a Cali resident
by then? Can a PO Box be set up in another state, for example? Any other tips on how I might be able to get in on LC besides their secondary Folio market?
Tommy, thanks for sharing your investment strategies in the earlier thread. How would I find and get started with a foreclosure flipping group like yours?
Anyone have experience in investing money through a hard money/private money broker?
I'm looking for hands-off or low-involvement investments and these seem like three good options; any other suggestions?
As I've mentioned before, I'm pretty frugal. I like spending money on things like the island, travel, and good food, but I also like saving money. I spend very little money frivolously, and don't have an overwhelming appetite for luxury.
I don't make much money, either. I'm content to have enough income to fund my inexpensive lifestyle, to save a little bit most months, and to retain control of almost all of my time to invest in big future projects like Sett.
Relatively frequently, though, I'll have a small windfall. Sometimes I'll have a good run in poker where I make a few thousand dollars within a couple days. My new book, Superhuman by Habit has been doing really well, too. Thanks to my readers and friends, it's been in the top 1000 books on Amazon. For a while last year my bitcoins were worth a bunch of money.
In these sorts of situations, it can be tempting to spend more money. People bargain with themselves, allowing themselves to spend some or all of unexpected sums of money they come across.
I moved my blog over from Wordpress to SETT a bit over 6 months ago, and I've been absolutely loving it.
@Tynan, the creator of SETT, has given me ten invite codes for SETT, good for either a FREE personal plan, or 40% off a paid plan, for life.
If you want to scoop up one of these invite codes, here's how to do it:
Pick any blog I've written (other than this one) and make a comment on the thread. In your comment, include the hashtag #GiveMeSETT . I'll send the invite code to the 10 best comments I receive. And by best, I mean thoughtful responses to the topics at hand.
Here are a few of my favorite blog posts that you can comment on:
