    A ‘secret’ book project …

    secret_science_project

    When I launched this site – and, found the 6 Millionaires … In Training! – I made sure that everybody who applied knew that I had a book or two in the off’ing …

    The work we are doing here will the subject of at least two books: one now, and one at the end of the project.

    Who knows, there may be a whole series of the damn things!

    Anyhow, I have been harboring a book for many, many years now … and, I can safely say that one of the reasons I became rich was because I was basically researching that book and ‘experimenting’ on myself.

    And, this site is, in effect, a repeat of that experiment, but in a much more organized fashion: I had to learn by trial and error; you, 7MIT or active member of the 7m7y Community, simply have to follow along the path that I have hacked with my personal finance machete … hopefully, you won’t encounter as many scorpions, rattlesnakes, blind bluffs, broad chasms, and wrong turns as I did.

    In some respects, I am the lone adventurer, but you are the true pioneers …. setting out from your ‘safe comfort zones’ to make new homes for yourselves amongst the ‘rich’; you don’t really know what you will encounter, but you are brave enough to embark on the journey … and, I hope you have the stamina to see it through!

    Which brings me back to the book:

    I can’t tell you the subject, but I can tell you that the ‘6 Millionaires … In Training!’ comment that introduced this post with was NOT a typo …

    … at my invitation, Debbie has agreed to leave 7 Millionaires … In Training! program to co-author the book with me!

    After all, one writer (Diane) on this ‘grand experiment’ is enough ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I am very excited that Debbie has chosen to work with me on this project, as we hope to have a major impact on the PF reader community with it … and, we will need your help: we will need active participation both here and on the Share Your Number community site from as many people as possible, as we will be using a lot of your contributions on these sites as case study material.

    You will be helping to break new Personal Finance ground (well, new to everybody who doesn’t actively follow this blog and ‘grand experiment’!) …

    The catch for Debbie, of course, is that by teaming up with me, she would be breaking at least one – perhaps several ๐Ÿ™‚ – of the 7 Golden Rules. However, Debbie will remain an active member of both this site and the Share Your Number Community, which she will be co-hosting with me.

    We’ll keep you posted on the book … and, on some further exciting news for this site … as we go along! ๐Ÿ™‚
