Over the past few weeks, we've been getting feedback about our newsletter. Many times it was that our newsletter has some great content but it wasn't as easy to skim from a topics perspective.
So we've taken your feedback and changed out the layout.
Speaking of changes, there are also a few other things that we'd like to point out.
First, we are now trying to collect as much information about what you want to see so that we can create it and deliver it to you. That said, you will notice a lot more short surveys throughout our website and our Facebook group.
Speaking about the group, our Facebook group has a new layout. Because we have so many discussions flowing in there, it would be really easy for you to miss some of the bigger updates / opportunities which is why we've created a table of content like page. If you want to leave any questions / browse the conversations, simply click on the discussions tab on the left.
Please let us know what you think!
From Our Own Site
Besides all the changes throughout our website, we don’t have any new blog posts.
Money in Daily Life
“For me, retirement just means that I am able to spend more time doing the things I already find meaningful in life. I won’t have to devote X hours a day to doing tasks that earn money. Rather, I can pick and choose among things I want to do and not have to worry at all about income.
Although this post is more about time management (and a very good post to say the least), I'd like to share that quote with you. If you had all 24 hours to yourself each day, how would you spend it? What projects would you take on?
Once you have a list of those activities that get you excited, replace the idea of retiring to becoming able to do those things every day. That will definitely help in the quest of making early retirement early.
Friendships and the Financial Turnaround
Are you hanging out with a group of friends who live an extremely expensive lifestyle? Would they still accept you for who you are if you stopped trying to one-up their possessions (let alone, live a more sustainable lifestyle)?
If not, then maybe it's time to expand your friend groups to also include ones that would be able to accept you without having to impress them with possessions.
Some people find their calling and purpose in life through their career path, and others find their calling and purpose elsewhere. What matters is that you find your calling, not where you find it.
In the end, don’t let people who have different goals than you chide you or make you feel bad for the goals you have. Your goals are yours and yours alone, not theirs. Similarly, there’s no reason to chide others for having goals different than your own.
We all have our own goals and aspirations. And if yours requires more money or more time to make happen, you're at the right place.

If you or someone you know is having trouble managing their debt or finances, AKPK’s services such as their Debt Management Program (DMP) is free of charge. A registration is all that is required to have a free counseling session with them.
The second best investment you can make (number 1 is investing in yourself) is to pay off your credit card debt. Although it may seem like you're only required to pay a small amount, they are actually charging you 20%+ in interest over the course of a year.
This also means that by paying it off, you're keeping 20% more of your money. Guaranteed (as opposed to the stock market which has no guarantees).
If you or anyone you know does have credit card debts, please see how AKPK can help you!
If you divide the world population into two groups, the first group consists of those who can double their money fast, which is the minority. The second group is the majority of the middle class and the poor, who either don’t think it is possible or don’t know how they can make it.
Which group do you belong?
Do you know what the best ways of making money are? Yes, investing can allow you to double within a few years, but for most people, the best way to double their money is to be able to command a higher salary. Become so valuable that the company you work for would be stupid not to give you the salary.
Another way to double your salary is to create your own side project that can slowly replace your current income (hence, doubling your income). This will take more work than the last suggestion, but it does have the ability to constantly double for decades.
Either way, they will both take hard work and sacrifices. The only question is if you're willing to accept it.
I have decided to show these opportunities to you because I believe that they are some of the best ones out there and in many cases, are ones that I am personally involved with or am looking to get involved with.
Sorry, there are none at the moment.
