Today I have an amazing interview with the wall street whiz Timothy Sykes. Tim made over a million dollars before he graduated college in the stock market (if you don’t believe me look its on Wikipedia!). In this interview he explains how he did it and talks about his hugely successful membership site at www.timothysykes.com.

Alright, this is one of my first No really I’m legitimate posts.

But in this post I am going to show you two things.. first how I made $4444 in 7 days and secondly how you can do the same.
So one of my New Year’s goals has been to make $10,000 (USD) per month gross for the first half of year… then after that I am going to put on the heat and do $10,000 a month net (oh snap!). You can imagine my happiness by 7th (yesterday) when I realized (with the help of my rusty math skills) I was only $5556 bucks away from my goal!
