“It’s clearly a budget. It’s got a lot of numbers in it.”
– George W. Bush
Since learning mental math isn’t exciting enough to warrant a bunch of posts on, I didn’t write that much about it. However, I did practice my mathematical abilities on a daily basis and ended up becoming pretty good at keeping tally of some large numbers. While it was nerdy, I enjoyed being able to mentally estimate things like bar tabs and restaurant bills before they were presented. If you have a couple extra bucks, I suggest picking up Short-Cut Math. It’s a quick read that taught me quite a bit.
My other challenge of writing a Fiverr book has been scrapped. I think that almost all the “make money online” books are really cheesy, and I don’t want a flood of people copying my exact formula for earning a living. With that said, anyone who is interested in making money with Fiverr should shoot me an email. I’d be happy to set you up in business, free of charge.
Lastly, the other eBooks that I made have done decently well for themselves. I’ve gotten enough off them to cover some random impulse purchases. While it’s not big money, it was enough to allow me to buy a couple books. One of which I’ll most likely be using in a future challenge.
November was a good month for me. I managed to earn enough that I quit my job, learned how to tally bills in my head, and sold some books. Somehow I also managed to have a lot of fun, and ended up with more free time than I used to have.
