A Memorable Memorial Day Weekend

My wife and I are finally back in Charlotte. After an Atlanta weekend last weekend, where my brother and I were unfortunately bounced from the round of 16 in a pickleball tournament, we were back and staying put. While we were in Charlotte we actually ended up playing a lot of pickleball and walking long distances. We did test out an Ethiopian restaurant and a Korean restaurant. The immigration process was kicked off and I think that will be taking up some of our free time these next days. With that being said, and saying bye to a great weekend, let’s get to the numbers!

10-day BS Refresh

Analysis Intelligence

The Opening NW in the 5/31/2021 column is the closing NW from the 5/20/2021 column. The green numbers represent estimated changes to my net worth in those categories (green numbers in 5/31 column are the changes that I estimated on 5/20). The white “Gain from” rows show how the actual numbers turned out compared to my original estimates, ten days prior. We had a big credit card payment to handle the lawyers for the immigration services and Bitcoin went down.

NW/Learning Wins:

  • Got approved for financing on a seven unit rental property
  • My brother and I met with Nik Bhatia for our podcast episode of Layered Money and we posted the Rich Dad Poor Dad episode (see link below)
  • Posted a book give away on LinkedIn, trying to raise awareness of the actuarial goal journal
  • Met with creator of Luci and might do some writing for them involving credit topics

Ideas for increasing NW/Learning

  • Revisit Tax Liens
  • Start analyzing how affiliate programs really work
  • Instead of relying solely on Amazon to sell my book I’m thinking to sell the books on my website as well. Should I just control the book sales in the same corporation as my real estate in Michigan?
  • Tell one person per day about The Brothers on Books Podcast
