Dot Com Mogul or Not for April 2007

Well it looks like January is still the standing benchmark for the year. April has been a huge struggle for me. Having to deal with a bit of burn out, the loose ends connected to my car accident, and now my stupid sinus infection has made April a bit of a nightmare. Highlights however included my trip to Las Vegas and hitting a Lingerie Show. At least some good came out of it, but let’s see how I did with my monthly goals.

1. Your income must come about as a result of the money you make from the InternetThat’s a CHECK!

2. The minimum internet income level is $10,000 a month (you cannot add income from other sources to hit this $10K level) – I won’t be making it this month, but the outlook is strong for the coming months. However, for now NO CHECK

3.You have no jobs outside of the Internet – I celebrated my one year Retirement Anniversary in April. Wow, has time just blown by! Here’s to a ton of great years down the road. CHECK!

4. You have a personal blog with your name as the domain nameCHECK THAT!

5. Your blog must be updated at least ONCE PER DAY – I altered this one last month from the previous once a week to once a day. Unfortunately, with all the crap that has happened, my regular posting took a dive. However, we’re back on track for this month, but unforunately NO CHECK for April.

6. A Google search of your name must be at the #1 spot – I’m still here and STILL NUMBER ONE! Unfortunately, someone still needs to update that WikiPedia entry with the right info. CHECK!

7. You must be willing to help dot com mogul wannabes – Definitely doing what I can. April wasn’t a great month, but I did still manage to help a few. CHECK!

8. Give time, money, or anything of value to a charitable cause each month – Everyone that participated in my Favourite Me for a Charity Contest should put a BIG CHECK on their lists this month. You made that donation possible. Although I was only obligated to give the $62, I bumped that straight up to $100 and donated it to our chosen charity, World Vision.

9. Personally help at least one person establish their online presence via a blog or website or help them enhance one they already have every month – It’s been tough to get face time this month with all that’s happened. Although officially, I did help “Re-establish” online presences due to a hack attempt on one of my servers that took down Leo, Brice, and Kelly. I’m not giving myself a check because that doesn’t fit the spirit of this goal. NO CHECK

April was a tough one. So much happened, but let’s not dwell. Time to move onto May and beyond 🙂
