Announcing My Next Book: The Young Entrepreneur’s Guide to Business, Finance, and Life!

EDIT: The book is published! View by clicking here! 

I’m very pleased to announce the upcoming release of what I believe to be my best creation yet – The Young Entrepreneur’s Guide to Business, Finance, and Life.

While aimed for younger entrepreneurs (students, or people who have graduated college only to find their degree is worthless) the content within this book will be beneficial for anyone looking to create a business. The book is not just about business however – it also covers other important aspects of an entrepreneur’s life on the road to becoming rich, including personal finance, investing, and moving into the real world.

This book is quite different than my other book, as it focuses more on the business backend and finance, where my other book focuses more as an introduction to blogging. This book is also 2.5x longer, coming in near 35,000 words, around 150 pages! It’s an incredible value at $9.99, as many other authors on this subject charge way higher prices for less than half the content.

For the right person, this book is an incredible investment. While the book on its own will not make you a success, if you actually utilize the knowledge within the book, you are already ahead of most other entrepreneurs and have a way better chance of achieving your goals. [Read more…]

Your Blog Is NOT A Business

Today I’m going to be completely honest with you, because it’s something many people need to hear.

I don’t care how much your blog is making or who told this to you (even if it was me), your blog is not a business. Not at all. So quit calling it one!

I’ve Finished My Book – Taking HSMS Up A Notch

We all reach that point in our lives where we are incredibly busy. The point where we have to put certain things on hold for a while. Unfortunately, that time has come to me for the past few months, and I was unable to work on one of my favorite web sites – this one.

Having just started college, I was completely overwhelmed with the amount of extra work I’d have for me. While I’m taking all of the online classes I can, the amount of studying I must do to succeed is proving to be quite the challenge.

However, I couldn’t tame my passion for blogging, so I decided to take up a new challenge – writing a book. And guess what? It’s done! Blogging For Profit: A Beginner’s Guide To Starting Your Very Own Web Business! will be available on Amazon’s Kindle store and the Google Play store later this week. Through writing this book, I’ve gained invaluable experience that I can’t wait to share with you. I’m a better writer and a better blogger as a result.

Fortunately, times are clearing up and I’ll be able to return to working on Help Start My Site Again.

There are also some other changes coming to the website that I think you will love. You’ll see them when they happen :).


Thanks for your understanding and I look forward to getting back to regular schedule!

Changes Coming To

I’m constantly striving to make the best resource to you all that it can possibly be, which is why I’m pleased to announce that there will be several upcoming changes to Help Start My Site within the upcoming weeks.

First and foremost, I’m looking to up the posting schedule from 1-2 posts a week to 3-4 posts a week. Now that I’m out of school, I have much more free time to dedicate towards writing content to publish while also having additional time to market the new content. This means more great articles for you to read!

Secondly, I’m going to begin selling my services by allowing the ability to hire me for various tasks. This will range from consulting to full-on custom programming. Prices will only get more expensive as the demand for my services increases, so it’s highly recommended to purchase early if these services interest you. Of course, if you’re already signed up to my email newsletter, you’ll be the first to know and will be eligible for subscriber discounts.

Finally, I’m going to be tweaking the design a bit within the next few weeks. I’m a bit dissatisfied with the blandness of the website, and would like to make it a little more colorful. I’m also going to have a custom logo made as I’ve been putting it off for far too long, and it’s time to change that.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing how it all plays out and I hope you’re as excited for the changes as I am!
